4 Foods To Stop Eating If You Suffer With Anxiety
- Tofu and other Soy products
People who eat a lot of soy think that it is good for them. Unfortunately, it also toys with hormonal balance.
If you are looking for a protein source, try beans or quinoa. Soy interferes with iodine and therefore affects the thyroid and can cause weight problems, stomach cramps and poor digestion.
- Coffee and other caffeinated products
Caffeine can make you jumpy and nervous.
It also blocks the body from being able to absorb vitamin D and vitamin B, both of which help to balance your mood.
- Processed Foods
There are a lot of good reasons to avoid processed foods, but if you have anxiety then it is really important.
They tend to be packed in containers that contain BPA, which can alter genes in the section of your brain responsible for handling stress.
Stick to fresh fruits and vegetables, lean proteins and whole grains that come without labels.
- Fruit Juice
You give yourself a rush of sugar that boosts the body’s production of adrenaline.
This can trigger a panic attack in those who have anxiety. Not only that, fructose can change the way that your brain handles stress.
Drinking water is the best way to hydrate.
