Many people who struggle with obesity also struggle with depression. Science has now proven that rich foods can cause depression.
“In addition to causing obesity, rich foods can actually cause chemical reactions in the brain that ultimately lead to depression. Researchers observed that mice received a higher-fat diet showed signs of being anxious by avoiding open areas, as well as signs of depression.”
-International Journal of Obesity, April 2012
