Do you believe that a good tasty lunch can make you happy?
While you are dieting, your brain cells try to save energy and you unintentionally want to avoid any stress, including strong positive emotions, like joy, happiness, ecstasy, etc.
If your brain cells do not get optimal nutrition, they grow old and do not work properly.
What kind of food can make us happy? Getting vitamins is very important. Stress weakens your immune system; free radicals attack your cells, etc...
If you feel that life is just a joyless struggle to survive, you need to increase the amount of vitamin B you get. This vitamin is responsible for the formation of lecithin, which is very important nourishment for your nervous system. You can get it with sunflower seeds, citrus fruits, bananas, 4-5 eggs a week, poultry, beans, whole grains, oatmeal, fish, sea food and nuts.
Vitamins B and C support cells, vitamins A and E protect them and glucose is a source of nourishment for your cells. That is why we want some sweets when we are tired. If your blood sugar is low, you become annoyed and aggressive. It does not mean you have to eat cake and chocolate right away. You will have energy in the morning, if you eat a dinner that has 70% protein. The right foods for your dinner are meat, fish, sea food, chicken, turkey, eggs, cottage cheese, vegetables and fruits. Exclude potatoes or boiled vegetables.
If you have a weak nervous system, you should not eat food rich in carbohydrates, like pasta, sugar, pizza, sweets, bread, French fries and canned food. You will get a lot of glucose with these kinds of food, but its concentration in your blood drops fast because of an insulin effect. As soon as it happens, you will get annoyed and nervous. To feel better you need another portion of glucose. It becomes a vicious circle where your sugar increases and drops down all the time. It is harmful for your body, your cells and your pancreas.
