In the latest edition of PCOS Review, researcher Bill Slater discusses how whole foods such as vegetables, fruits and fish can act as anti-depressants compared to “comfort foods” which only give the impression of “lifting us up.”
He cites a recent study from the UK’s University College London revealing that depressed people ate a lot of “processed foods” such as sweet desserts, fried foods, processed meat, refined grains and dairy products high in fat.
In comparison, individuals who were less depressed were found to consume a diet of whole foods.
Slater goes on to say that convenience foods contribute to the worsening of PCOS issues including depression. He recommends – and we have heard excellent comments about – “The Natural Diet Solution for PCOS and Infertility” by Nancy Dunne, ND and, no surprise, Bill Slater.
