  • Sugar
    Sugary foods raise energy levels and mood temporarily but the high is followed by a crash. Refined sugar has a different mood altering effect than that of the fibre-rich starch in grains. Eat some fruit instead of processed sweets to stay energized and happy.

  • Caffeine

    A research by the department of Psychology at the University of South Alabama shows that people diagnosed with clinical depression experience less fatigue and depression when they eliminate sugar or caffeine and replace them with natural foods and beverages such as ginger tea.

  • Chips and other Salty Snacks

    Most commercial crispy snacks are greasy, salty, and poor in nutrients. The salt dehydrates tisses by forcing water out of cells in an effort to dilute the excess sodium in the blood. The first symptom of even dehydration is fatigue.

  • Refined Grains

    Like most high-glycemic-index foods, refined grains cause blood sugar levels to sky-rocket. This triggers the pancreas to release large amounts of insulin, which helps funnel excess glucose into tissues. If too much insulin is released, blood sugar levels plummet, resulting in fatigue and moodiness. Try low-glycemic-index alternatives, such as whole grains or sweet potatoes and other starchy vegetables.

  • French Fries

    They may be the most popular food but they are also the least nutritious. French fries are specially low in folate, a B vitamin that helps nerve cells manufacture several of the most important mood regulating neurotransmitters. Optimal intake of this B vitamin improves mood, attention and mental function.
