Depression Drugs: Optimizing Your Nutrition to Reduce Side Effects

Broccoli is your friend and as far vegetbales go it doesn't taste that bad.

Depression drugs often have side effects, like gaining weight or feeling like a "zombie". This often makes people discontinue drugs, not take them consistently, or not take them in the first place. However, there is a way to minimize these side effects and that is by maximizing your nutrition. This means eating more fruit, vegetables, lean meat, whole grains, etc, and less sugar, trans fats, processed foods, etc. If you're on depression drugs and you eat healthy (consisteny) you won't gain weight or feel like a zombie. I used to be against meds because they made me feel lethargic, but now they don't because I eat healthy.

By the will have to eat healthy for a good month or so before you notice that its helping. Then you'll have to keep eating healthy to keep feeling energized. Once you eat healthy for a while you get used to it and it becomes automatic.

Hope you're doing well
