You may have certain questions regarding diet and depression like :

OK , The answer is here !!!

Without proper nutrition in the diet , we increase the risk of infections and diseases and notably we increase the symptoms of depression.
Nutrition can have a lot to do with the onset of feeling depressed ! we have all heard the comforts of food .Foods do make us feel better when we are feeling bad of something! Am I Right ?

Eat a diet full of nutritional value :
The benefits of eating a diet high in nutrition are well known and some of the foods that should be included as part of the diet include :

1.Fresh vegetables and fruits (steamed or not steamed )
2.Lean meats such as chicken,turkey and fish.
3.Whole grain carbohydrates such as breads and pasta.
4.Beans , peas and other lentils.
5.Low fat dairy products.

And nutritional supplements can also be a good help to you!! Talk to your family doctor about which can be best for you!!
The brain is made up of essential fatty acids ,water and other nutrients.These are all nutrients that are all contained in the food we eat. Eating the right foods will have an effect on how you feel ,think as well as our behavior.Avoiding the foods that are unhealthy can help avoid or prevent depression!!!

Stay healthy and be afraid of  nothing!!!
