The newest weapon against depression may be your diet.
People who followed a Mediterranean diet saw a major improvement in their overall mood after just a few weeks. The diet is filled with veggies, whole grains, fish, a limited amount of lean meat, olive oil, herbs, nuts and moderate consumption of red wine.
It’s traditional to countries like Spain, Italy, Greece and Portugal. Mediterranean-eating is loaded with anti-inflammatory nutrients, plus this diet lowers the risk of heart disease, diabetes and inflammation. Doctors stress, this diet is not a replacement for traditional therapies and medication.
