Reduce anxiety by avoiding foods

Anxiety is not essentially caused by what you eat. But that does not mean that millions of people are not contributing to their anxiety every day by eating foods. Having some food create anxiety symptoms while avoiding some foods that may reduce anxiety.

Diet and anxiety is a pair that needs to take each other very seriously, especially since one heavily influences the other.Here is a quick list of the various foods to avoid to make sure to reduce your anxiety.

Fried Foods – Fried foods are difficult to digest, have little nutritional content, and contribute to heart struggles. Although they may taste great to most people, the long term side-effects of eating huge quantities of fried foods can only help to increase your anxiety levels.

    Alcohol – Set aside the fact that drinking alcohol can cause you to do crazy things that create more anxiety in your life, alcohol itself is terrible for your body. It dehydrates you, it throws off your hormone and nutritional balance, and it can cause physical symptoms from the toxins that trigger anxiety attacks.

      Coffee – Excess coffee is a known anxiety stimulant. In moderation (ie, once a day in the morning), it may not trigger anxiety in most people, but the more you drink the more you increase your risk. Coffee also creates a rapid heartbeat and some sensations that may create panic attacks.

      Dairy Products – Dairy products aren't inherently bad for you, but in excess they may heighten your adrenaline levels and contribute to a more anxious state. Taking in large quantities of dairy food can easily send your adrenaline levels through the roof and aggravate your anxious state.
      Sugary food – Sugary foods such as candy, syrups, honeys and chocolates may seem like the ultimate stress-reliever for those with a sweet tooth, but if you’re suffering from anxiety or panic disorders, these foods will just add to your anxiety.

      Acid Forming Foods – Foods like yogurt, pickles, eggs, sour cream, wine, and liver are all made to lessen the magnesium levels in your body; a chemical responsible for making you feel tense and edgy. Magnesium is a cause or contributor of anxiety in many of those suffering from anxiety symptoms, so cutting back on acid forming foods is important to reduce Anxiety.

        Avoiding these foods is unlikely to cure anxiety, but it will help,especially if you find that you over-consume some type of food on this list. Remember, most foods can still be eaten in moderation, but healthier eating is still a very important part of a healthy life.
