Lose The Donuts, Lose The Blues


If you value your state of mind, better improve your diet. Researchers in Spain have found that eating baked goods like donuts and cakes as well as fast food increases your chances of depression.

The research shows that eating items like cupcakes and hot dogs ups your chances of feel-bad emotions by 51 percent. And the more fast food you eat, the more likely it is you’ll be depressed.

The Spanish scientists also found that people who eat the most fast food and baked goods are more likely to be single, get little exercise and don’t eat enough fruit, nuts, fish and vegetables. They also frequently smoke and work more than 45 hours per week.
