The Psychiatry Royal College says about “eating well” as not only to consume the right nutrients but also to maintain a weight that is healthy and stable. The brain will have trouble if it stops receiving the enough amount of calories and nutrients needed for full operation. Your body defines a very limited diet as a major threat to survive, which will cause the release of stress hormones. It’s almost impossible to feel balanced, calm and happy when your body thinks you are struggling for survival. If you are experiencing health problems because of weight gain, seek the help and guideance of a medical professional and aim to lose weight at a safe steady pace.
