Did you know that a balanced diet and a bad mood are interdependent
Lately, people have been talking about depression more and more often. Much more people think they are affected by it. The truth is, depression is a difficult diagnosis that shouldn’t be diagnosed too quickly.
There are many people who just have elements of depression. The quick self-formulated diagnosis can be detrimental for this group because it leads to wrong measures being taken. Often it is permanent fatigue, burnout or simply an unhealthy lifestyle. The aforementioned problem area could easily be reflected in your mood and your self-esteem. Also, many people have symptoms reminiscent of depression from poor diet.
A balanced diet avoids a bad mood
We want to dedicate today’s article to a balanced diet. For this reason we no longer use the word depression. With us it’s about the bad mood and the feeling of insecurity for one’s own strength. We’ll go into the possible connection with healthy eating and explain how to overcome bad moods by making appropriate changes in eating habits.

Let us now look at the whole thing a little more scientifically. The bad mood is linked to low levels of serotonin in the brain. Only 10% is in the brain and the other 90% is made in a specific area in the stomach. Do you see the logical connection between this information? Also come to the logical conclusion that a healthy diet and a good mood are strongly linked?

Food and dishes for good and bad mood
We want to warn you in advance that the answer to the question of what food is good and which is bad for your mood has individual nuances. Therefore, you must view our lists as a guide rather than a must.
You have to try and learn to observe and get to know yourself. For example, it may be that a food from the “good” list makes you feel bad. This can have something to do with an allergy, a bad association or intolerance due to an illness. The bad list, in turn, can include things that you associate with good moments from your past.
Your own nutrition plan is a personal decision
Try for yourself what is good for you and what is bad
So the following lists are all about the rules of a balanced diet and a good mood, but you need to find out for yourself how far they apply to you. You also need to be aware that we are talking about permanent consumption. If you eat something “bad” but otherwise have a healthy lifestyle, it will not put you in a bad emotional state.
