Dr Drew Ramsey: The Happiness Diet Book Review
Did you know that more Americans suffer from depression than heart disease, cancer and AIDS combined? To discuss this important issue, The Doctors welcomed psychologist and neurologist Dr. Drew Ramsey. Dr. Ramsey wrote The Happiness Diet because he believes that food choices have the biggest impact on our brains.
“Food choices affect your brain more than anything else,” Dr. Ramsey said. More and more studies are proving this each day. A study found that women who ate the most processed food had a 58% increased chance of depression. Plus, Dr. Jim Sears noted that in a study with children diagnosed with ADHD, 78% of kids had improved within six weeks after switching from junk food to whole foods. That works better than medication!
Dr. Ramsey suggested avoiding juices filled with sugar and foods from boxes that are filled with preservatives. Take a look at Dr. Ramsey’s foods to avoid in the video below.
