Have you ever noticed that after eating fast food, such as a cheap hamburger, fries and a soda, that you feel sluggish and tired afterwards?  And maybe even unhappy or unmotivated as well?  And have you ever noticed that after eating a healthy, nutritious meal you feel energetic, alert and ready to take on the world?

That’s because what you eat affects your body chemistry, which can make you feel good and alert or it can make you feel lethargic, unhappy or even mildly depressed.  Since food plays a crucial role in shaping our moods, in this show I talk about how food affects our mood and what foods are associated with certain moods.

For those people who want to learn more about caffeine, please go back and listen to Show 20, where I cover that topic. Also if you are interested in more information on Vitamin D, please go back and read the blog post “Know Your Vitamin D.”

Some references I used while researching this show are cchs.net, medicinenet.com and iVillage.com.

I also answered a question, asked by Saul Cervantes, regarding how much water a person should consume after working out.

The blog posts for this week are:

  1. Chewing Gum: Want a Piece?
  2. Get That Food Away From the Deep Fryer!

If you like the show, please head on over to iTunes and give me a nice review. It’s a great way to give me some good exposure and can help me get more listeners. Thanks for listening, everyone!
