Happy to Hangry: The Psychology of Food

  1. From Happy To Hangry <br>The Psychology of Food<br>
  2. We all know that certain foods can change our moods. It’s been widely reported that chocolate can simulate feelings of love, and every holiday party attendee knows that alcohol tends to reduce inhibitions.<br>
  3. But is there more to food and the mind than temporary changes to blood sugar?<br>
  4. From the very beginning of life outside the womb, human beings exhibit a strong relationship between food and a sense of well-being.<br>
  5. When What You Eat Is Eating You <br>Caffiene is not always a good thing<br>
  6. The Side effects of caffeine <br>• anxiety <br>• nausea <br>• headache <br>• irritability  <br>• inability to focus<br>
  7. Are Feel Good Foods a Cure for Depression?<br>
  8. According to Dr. Gary L. Wenk, a doctor of Psychology and Neuroscience, while low-quality foods and poor nutrition can negatively impact us emotionally, “a good diet will only prevent you from feeling depressed.” A good diet can not rescue you once depression sets in, Wenk explains.<br>
  9. From Happy to “HANGRY” <br>Is Snicker's on to something?<br>
  10. Humor aside, it is true that Type 2 diabetes, chronic hypoglycemia and other conditions are known to result in erratic up-and-down emotions tied to blood sugar levels.<br>
  11. But research shows that a certain key mineral can do a lot to even out moods and stabilize blood sugar levels.<br>
  12. Magnesium’s “Chill” Effect<br>
  13. This vital mineral is often deficient in modern diets. Magnesium is removed during the water treatment process, most people get as little as half their daily requirement.<br>
  14. Magnesium Deficiency Cause: <br>• Insomnia <br>• Anxiety <br>• Irritability <br>• Depression <br>• Headaches<br>
  15. It all adds up to one thing: While the old adage you are what you eat may be a little over-simplistic, food does have a considerable impact on our sense of emotional well-being as well as on our physical health.<br>
