These Foods Will Make You Smile
The Modern American Diet—MAD—way of eating is throwing off our bodies' natural feel-good chemistry, resulting in a miserable, moody, anxious, and agitated nation. Luckily, an instant jolt of happiness is just a forkful of brain food away. People should be focusing on brain foods and mood-promoting fats to best nurture happiness, says Drew Ramsey, MD, coauthor (with Tyler Graham) of The Happiness Diet: A Nutritional Prescription for a Sharp Brain, Balanced Mood, and Lean, Energized Body. "Just a few meals away from the modern American diet, and you'll start to feel benefits like better energy and a more stable mood," explains Dr. Ramsey. "The moment you make a better food choice you are instantly building a better brain."
