ğ Here are some great eating habits that may improve the mood and state of people struggling with addictions:
– Decrease caffeine consumption.
– Avoiding refined carbohydrates and foods high in sugar is so important to overall health, especially when trying to recover from any addictions or any mental health struggles. As refined carbohydrates and foods high in sugar can cause energy to crash, ups and downs, which translates into mood swings. Â These types of foods are truly empty calories which results in a lack of needed nutrients for the body.
– Eat foods rich in antioxidants such as fruits and vegetables: they play a key role in boosting your immune system and help restore your skin and hair, which often deteriorate as a result of various addictions.
– Empower your body with more lean proteins and healthy fats: Eat beans, nuts and seeds, avocados, fish, salmon and tuna, which will not only strengthen your muscles, overall physical health and give the body much needed energy. But also helps to empower the brain by absorbing healthy fats, and gain more energy to fight your way out of brain fog, addictions, and restore more balance in your overall Â mental health.
– Adding fiber to your diet is vital to keep your digestive moving regularly. There are many sources of fiber such as vegetables, as broccoli, greens, beans, and brown rice, among so many other naturel sources. Keeping your digestive system moving is so important when you want to detox the body from all harmful substances. If substances stay in the body without being flushed out, it can adversely affect the brain function.
– Eat breakfast every day: It decreases crashing, and fatigue. I make a healthy smoothy filled with greens, berries, banana, sea greens, superfoods and raw cacao. I change it up every day.
– Drink water regularly: It is necessary to listen to your body Many times when we feel really hungry or tired and yawn, itâs the body Â signalling it needs to hydrate itself.
