Depression and food

I read an interesting paper about the connection between eating fast-food and the risk of developing depression.

I thought the idea was crazy in the first place, but it may actually make sense.

While there is few details in the article on the way food and depression may be connected on a physiological level, I can only admit that I was eating more fast-food in the past few months than one year before.

That also makes me think of one symptom that I read on my pills instructions: weight variation. I think my weight changed a lot in the past 3 or 4 months. This happened while I was eating more fast-food at the same time. That may sound weird.

Although physical exercise (I bike at least 3 times a week to go to work) can explain why I lost some weight, maybe the variation should not have been so obvious normally.

I am no physician, I do not provide a diagnosis, just two clues that may indicate depression or anxiety syndrome. Nothing is better than a specialist’s opinion on that matter.

I will try to make some efforts and have healthier meals, but at the same time, it may be more difficult when I feel all empty and drained.
