5. You eat too much fat. That bag of potato chips isn't good for your waistline or your mood. Greasy choices particularly those high in saturated fat are linked to both depression and dementia. What's more, a large, high fat meal will almost instantly make you feel sluggish. "It takes a lot Nike Uptempo Gs Reflective
of work for our bodies to digest fat," Gans says. "And since there's more work going on, you're obviously going to end up feeling tired."

3. You fall short on omega 3 fatty acids. Omega 3s found in fatty fish like salmon, mackerel, and sardines improve both memory and mood. Research suggests that low omega 3 levels are associated with depression, pessimism, and impulsivity. Indeed, depression rates are typically lowest in countries like Japan, where oily fish is a diet staple. Most experts recommend at least two servings of Nike Uptempo For Sale
You are what you eat? Maybe not, but you do feel what you eat. Research suggests that certain foods affect mood for better or worse. Dietary changes can trigger chemical and physiological changes within the brain that alter our behavior and emotions. "But the link between what you eat and your mood, your energy, how you sleep, and how well you think is much more immediate. What you eat or don't eat for breakfast will have at least a subtle effect by mid afternoon, and what you're eating all day will have a huge impact today and down the road."
4. You neglect important nutrients. Getting too little iron can spell depression, fatigue, and inattention, research suggests. Iron rich foods include red meat, egg yolks, dried fruit, beans, liver, and artichokes. Scientists have also found that insufficient thiamine can cause "introversion, inactivity, fatigue, decreased self confidence, and a poorer mood," according to a recent report published in the Dartmouth Undergraduate Journal of Science.

6 Ways Your Diet Affects How You Feel
1. You don't eat regularly. Food is fuel; skip a meal and you'll feel tired and cranky. When you go too long without eating, your blood sugar sinks and mood swings ensue. Aim for a meal or snack every four hours. Breakfast is particularly important especially for children: Studies show it helps kids perform better and get into less trouble at school. And breakfast makes both kids and adults less prone to cravings and more likely to maintain a healthy weight. But remember: All morning meals aren't equal. "We're not talking about a doughnut and coffee here," Somer says. She recommends high fiber cereal with a handful of fruit, or a cup of oatmeal with some milk and berries.

2. You skimp on carbs. Carbohydrates have long been demonized, but your body needs carbs to produce serotonin a feel good brain chemical that elevates mood, suppresses appetite, and has a calming effect. Research suggests that low carb dieters are more likely to feel tired, angry, depressed, and tense than those who get the recommended amount. The federal government advises that 45 to 65 percent of daily calories come from carbs, or 900 to 1,300 calories a day if you're following a 2,000 calorie diet. Some carbs, however, outshine others. Only complex carbs high in fiber and packed with whole grains have a positive effect on mood, whereas simple carbs (think candy, cake, cookies, and other sugary choices) bring you down. Need a quick mood boost? Try an all carb snack, like a couple cups of air popped popcorn or half a whole grain English muffin. "You'll feel happier and more relaxed very quickly," says Somer.
