March is here. Today I continue to be focused on the nutritional needs of our body. Our food intake is not only about energy balance. Recently a new field of study has emerged called “nutritional psychiatry”. In an observational review of the data, Jacka (2017) notes that mood is not only effected by what we do eat especially during our emotional binges which are those times when we consume to excess (for both sad and happy occasions).

You may think you will lose weight but think again. Some potential problems include a slower metabolism as the body moves into starvation mode.
