Do you feel depressed or anxious more often? Can the food you are eating be the cause?

Do you crave for ice creams and chocolates when you are sad? Or eating a cube of cheese, makes you happy! Think about it.

Your brain is always in the “work mode.” From the origin of your thoughts and feelings, to controlling your natural life processes like breathing, sleeping and even your heart beat… does it all. Even when you are sleeping, your brain is functioning and in fact it functions 24*7 hours and 365 days a year. The “work mode ON” status of the brain is accompanied by a constant supply of fuel (in the form of nutrients). That “fuel” comes from the food you eat and the quality of the fuel impacts the outcome.

In simple words, what you eat, directly impacts the structure and functioning of your brain and ultimately, your mental health.
