Where Do They Come From?
Bad mood swings can be triggered by the food you eat every day!

Read the short explanation about why certain foods can really cause a slump in your mood. Then take a look at the list and find out which ones are sabotaging your feelings.
No need to eliminate those foods. Just find ways to reduce the damage and put a smile back on your face!
Why Does it Happen?
Everything we eat affects the brain’s chemistry. Some foods cause a whopping high in sugar levels and soon after, a crash that leaves us irritable and moody.
Some are almost addictive, the more we eat the more we want. These are almost always the ones that cause the roller coaster effect in blood sugar levels too.
Others can increase appetite, make us jittery and likely to grab the next sugary snack.
Fact is our bodies use energy constantly monitoring and compensating for the highs and lows in blood sugar level.
The result is we feel tired and bad mood swings start and you already guessed…we grab the next snack and the whole cycle starts again.
These might be some of your favourite foods but don’t panic. We can look into reducing them to occasional enjoyable treats.
- Fried Foods
- Fatty Foods
- Sugary and Starchy Foods
Breaking the Cycle
We can keep our energy (blood sugar level) constant throughout the day by eating balanced meals. Introduce some good mood foods into your diet and watch your energy and enthusiasm soar.
Don’t eliminate the sweet things in life. Try sharing one portion with your mate or making a no sugar treat instead.
Enjoy a few squares of good dark chocolate after dinner instead of a whole bar in the car on the way home from the supermarket.
Coffee/Water & Co
Treat your body to more water during the day and less coffee.

Give the whole grain bread and pasta a try. After a week you will really wonder how you ever ate the other stuff. They are nuttier, tastier and do your digestive system the world of good.
