Can how you eat really affect your mood? From my mostly unscientific experiment on myself, it looks like it sure can! My college roommates and a long weekend together helped me crash and burn in this department. I had a great time, but boy was I a bear when I got home. My poor family!
At the end of July, I did a lot of research for my “Food for Your Mood” post. The research points to the fact that eating a healthier diet can improve your mood, alleviate depression and combat feeling like your butt is dragging all day. So yesterday the lightbulb went off over my head. Why not conduct a 15 day experiment on this fitness coach (me) and see if your mood is affected by what you eat? Some days I do very well, some days not so much. Let’s see if it makes a difference. So through the magic of the internet and video, I will bring you the “Food for Your Mood” 15 day experiement starting tomorrow. I will try to hold all other variables as constant as possible, but will include that in the report as well. So get ready to watch your Ginea pig blog!
