Does Consumption Of Any Particular Kinds Of Food Cause Depression?

Question: Does consumption of any particular kinds of food cause depression?

Answer: Many people when they're depressed talk about having cravings for certain types of foods -- that they may crave chocolate or sweets, and binge eat, which can make their depression even worse. More commonly we find that when people get depressed they eat less, and they actually lose weight. I generally recommend that people try to eat a healthy diet, which will make them feel better about themselves, and less likely to binge and feel negative, which will certainly fuel their depressions.
