Below are some Foods and Drinks to be Avoided if you are Dealing with Depression and Anxiety:
Soda: Various drinks that are sugar-sweetened (e.g. soda) are directly linked to depression, thus they must be avoided.
White Toast: Toast (made from white bread) i.e. white flour being highly processed turns to Blood Sugar when consumed. This can lead to crashes or energy spikes that turns out to be bad in case of depression or anxiety. Therefore, start consuming whole-grain bread!
Diet Soda: Although, Diet Soda lacks sugar content, so many people believe that it does not harm our body. However, excessive consumption of diet soda can also lead to depression.
Energy Drinks: Some Energy Drinks are loaded with excessive sugar or Artificial Sweetening agents that can lead to sleep issues, anxiety or weird heart rhythms.
