Does Junk Food Affect Your Mood?
The book we reviewed earlier this week, Junk Foods and Junk Moods, posed a good question: Do junk foods cause junk moods or do junk moods cause us to eat junk foods? Either way, we all know that we shouldn’t eat a lot of junk food. Because we preach the “all good things in moderation” rule here in FBG land, we’d never recommend that you totally outlaw any food in your diet. However, I have noticed that when I eat not-so-great-for-me-food, my mood does nosedive a bit, and I just feel lethargic. (Which makes it much easier for me to avoid the stuff.) Are you the same? Or can you eat it like a champ?
Curious to see the responses on this one. As always, please tell us about your experience in the comments! —Jenn
