Food For Thought: Why Does Healthy Eating Make You Happy?

Posted by Tina Jones, N.P. on Jul 7, 2015 2:20:00 PM

Here’s the thing: the food you eat affects your mood, but what you eat is also influenced by what mood you are in.

This creates a circular effect that can lead to extremes on either side. For example, you’ve probably indulged yourself with that not-so-healthy meal when you were in a stressful situation.

Unfortunately, poor eating choices negatively affect your physical health, which can increase the amount of stress you incur (either from fatigue, weight gain, or other symptoms of a poor diet). When you’re more stressed, the body is more likely to hunger for those unhealthy foods that your brain has associated with relief and pleasure. This can quickly lead to a downward spiral that can have devastating effects on your health throughout your life.

The good news is that the opposite is also true: there is an “upwards” spiral. The ideal situation is for you to eat healthy, see good results, and make smarter choices that result in you eating healthy again and again. You can’t go on a terrible diet that tortures you until the end, because once it’s over you’ll go back to your old ways. The key is to create a sustainable diet that is directly associated with the dietary choices you make.

Depending on the individual, dietary control can help make up for the hormone imbalances in your body. On the other hand, others may require more acute treatments and therapies. The important thing, however, is that regardless of your situation, dietary control and maintenance will help you achieve a healthier and happier lifestyle.
