Generally speaking, deep down most of us know how to eat to lose weight.
And if you don’t, here’s the CliffsNotes version – eat less calories than your body is using.
However, when it comes to eating for health, things are a little different, and the food choices you make can often differ greatly depending on your specific health goal.
How To Optimize Your Mood Through Diet
When it comes to our mood and how we feel on a daily basis, some people are just luckier than others. Everyone knows that one person who’s just ALWAYS in a good mood (no matter what).
For the rest of us though, things aren’t quite as simple. Many of us are prone to a lot of fluctuation in our mood, cycling through periods of unhappiness, anxiety and irritability.
While you’ll never be able to do away with these negative feelings, there are steps you can take to reduce their intensity and get yourself feeling more stable.
And one of the best places to start is with your diet.
Step #1 – Prioritize Protein And Fat
It’s well known that eating a high protein diet is one of the best things you can do for killing hunger and losing fat. But what most people DON’T realize is that it has a number of other health benefits as well, and is a great way to stabilize how you feel.
Both protein and fat have been well known to slow down the absorption of carbohydrates into the bloodstream after a meal. By eating this way, you’ll be far less prone to blood sugar fluctuations, which sap your energy and wreak havoc on your emotional wellbeing.
As for your carb sources, you’ll want to stick with those that are rich in fibre (which also has a similar effect on digestion).
Step #2 – Avoid Certain Foods Like The Plague
We all know the obvious foods we should be avoiding – chocolate, candy, fruit juice, sugary breakfast cereal – you don’t need us to tell you that these calorically-dense, nutritionally-bankrupt foods aren’t doing you any favours.
But what you may NOT realize is that there are some “healthy” foods that can trigger sensitivities in some people.
Coconut milk, for example, is amazingly healthy, but for some, it can set off indigestion, irritability and energy crashes.
Unfortunately, there’s no real way to know for sure which foods are going to have this effect on you – which is why it’s important to be tuned into your body.
Pay attention to how you feel, and if you notice patterns with certain things you eat, be sure to remove them from your diet.
Step #3 – Consider Supplements
The right supplement can definitely help with mood issues.
One of the benefits of taking Vutrali Garcinia is that it may help promote the production of Serotonin, a key neurotransmitter that helps contribute to feelings of well-being and happiness (perfect for days when you’re feeling lethargic and down).
