Like someone else said, "anything with natural anti-oxidants can help." Think about eating really well, DRINKING LOTS OF WATER, and get a little exercise. Cause if you find yourself really healthy and in shape, what can there possibly be to be depressed about??


brandihoo
When i was depressed, it helped when i ate a lot of Fiberous foods.. things like oatmeal and apples.. things that will make you go poo... somehow we tend to be constipated when we are depressed... drinking lots and lots of water helps with that process.. it may sound odd.. but when i was depressed it helped me a lot to get out.. exercise *even when i didnt feel like it*.. I hope that helps...


mc_691
I think by now you got the answer to whats a good depression food - Its Chocolate Chocolate n more Chocolate. I eat it even when im not depress just to make sure i dont get depress :) if you still get depress after eating chocolates then come back again here and ask again.

B vitamins help..look for 100mg strength. Eat natural foods, nothing processed and in boxes..Depression is a chemical imbalance of the brain and may be caused by an improper diet..Be sure to take a multi as I said with 100mg of b complex, that helps alot, chamomile, Valerian root, help relax as does warm milk. Treat yourself well and be kind to yourself. I had depression for two years and self talk and eating proper helped me. Bless you..I wish you all the best!
Stay away from anything laden with sugar ..that is the worst you can do for yourself!

i eat 2 bananas a day the first person is so right and exercise is key to get those endorphins pumping right


GJneedsanswers
Mainly chocolate. Ice cream is good too.


wormfarmer
chamomile tea is wonderful ... also you should AVOID caffeine, and get outside ... take a walk ... you'll be surprised how much it helps.


pixiedust
food is at times a coping mechanism for depression. this is a very unhealthy practice, and thus if you are depressed i would recommend visiting your physican and thereby seeking help wether it be counseling or medication or both.

You must eat all foods,drinks and fruits and vegetables which are halal or not prohibited by your religion and better or thoyib for your body.Not allf foods,drinks,fruits and vegetables ae fit for your body though it is not forbidden.Please ask your health specialist and your doctor for that becase it is depend on your desease and your needs for vitamines.It is better you drink one and a half litre fresh water a day and eat banana and some other fruits you wanted You must seach the root cause of depressed condition and try hard to overcome.Pease be calm and pray to God at right time.


neha a
ya looooots of ice creams and chocolates


TeraBytes
Well, it is true depression food wont cure it. If it lasts for over a month it may be real depression, a real medical condition.
Go see your doc and talk to them about it. It will not go away on its own, I suffer with it, and have to be on medication.

If its an occasional downers, dark chocolate is good. Also, taking st. johns wart will help. But st. johns wart will decrease effectivness of birth control pills.

Probably sugar...it makes you hyper...or caffeine...it does too!


running2adream
from what i understand...if we eat processed foods...like chocolates...we are making things worse...we are going to feel good for awhile and then going to crash again....the good old sugar rush thing...we need to start eating whole foods....the real stuff...not processed, not manufactured, grains, fish, nuts, rice...the healthy things...then our moods will lift up not to mention that our weights will drop ( another mood lifter)
if you go to http://clusty.com/
which is a search engine, and type in foods for depression you will get some more sites
hope this helps


MOM KNOWS EVERYTHING

The best thing is exercise. Move it or lose it. Start with walking. go at your own pace. eventually work up to running twice a week if you can. The most difficult part is getting started, but laborious as it may be, exercise is not as bad as having depression.

Also someone said "nuts", but somewhere I heard specifically walnuts (Omega 3's?), but I haven't noticed much difference with any food. On the other hand, exercise is a miracle cure. It has a very significant effect. Its comperable to a drug (because it is a drug; natural ones your body makes). Your body was meant to be worked.

Also, don't drink too much, it's a big downer.

Yes there are a number of things a vitamin therapy of 10000 mg of vitamin A, 3000 mg of vitamin C time released, 5000 mg of sub-lingual B 12, 2000 mg of Omega 3, 1500 mg of no flush niacin and 6 tablets of cal-mag by Schiff brand. At least the first five if you can't do anything else. Here's a list of other foods. There is a better way!

Food does affect your mood, and what you eat -- and when -- can impact depression. Sugar and caffeine give you a quick lift -- but can leave you feeling down when their effects wear off. This meal plan reduces sugar and caffeine intake because feelings of depression often improve when their consumption is minimized. Complex carbs act as tranquilizers by increasing your amount of serotonin, the neurotransmitter that calms, in your brain. This meal plan contains lots of fruits and whole-wheat foods to increase your complex carb intake. Turkey contains tryptophan which has a calming affect on the brain. Chamomile, peppermint or goyah tea, for your morning and evening mojo has a calming effect on the brain. Chronic dehydration -- however slight -- can cause feelings of anxiety. That's why this diet includes plenty of water, often with some lemon or lime added to liven it up. Golden raisins are high in vitamin B6 and can be added to an meal or eaten as a snack.

Even marginal vitamin deficiencies that don't result in clinical symptoms can negatively affect your mood. This diet, when paired with a daily multivitamin and mineral supplement, will help ensure adequate intake of essential vitamins and minerals (especially the B vitamins and folic acid. Steady blood sugar levels help keep you on an even keel. This meal plan includes complex carbohydrates in every meal and encourages eating small meals spaced evenly throughout the day to help normalize blood sugar levels. ie, vitamin D, magnesium, selenium, and calcium).

option one
calcium-fortified orange juice
fiber therapy
soy protein fortified with calcium and vitamin D

option two
1/2 cup egg scramble
slice of whole-wheat toast

option three

SNACKS (in between meals)

whole-grain crackers with almond butter
handful of fresh nuts and dried fruit
soy protein smoothie
small fruit
apple slices and fat-free cheese


Healthy Dos and Don'ts

Here are a few eating tips to keep in mind when you're dealing with depression.
