Have you been experiencing feelings of sadness or depression? It’s important to recognize that your mood can significantly impact your daily life. Depression can affect anyone, regardless of age, gender, or race, and can have a profound impact on both you and your loved ones. In fact, it’s estimated that approximately 16 million Americans suffer from major depression, which is characterized by feelings of emptiness, hopelessness, guilt, fatigue, and self-consciousness. These symptoms can cause you to lose interest in daily activities and withdraw from loved ones who want to help.

At Ramos Center, we believe that mental health and physical health are interconnected. Our team of professional doctors, therapists, and nutritionists is here to help you regain control of your life and start living every day to the fullest.

Recent research conducted by Columbia University Medical Center has shown a link between a diet high in refined carbs and depression in postmenopausal women. While this research is still in its early stages, it highlights the importance of understanding how the foods we eat can impact our mental health.

So, what exactly are refined carbohydrates? They are the result of a processing method that removes the fiber and natural nutrients from whole grain foods. Some common examples of refined products include bread, rice, pasta, and cereal. To make healthier choices, opt for 100% whole grain bread, brown rice, and whole wheat pasta. When choosing cereal, it’s essential to read the ingredients on the packaging to ensure that you’re making a healthy choice.

Consuming refined carbs can have adverse effects on your health. Due to the lack of fiber in refined carbs, they are digested quickly, causing a rapid spike in blood sugar and insulin levels. This spike has been linked to weight gain, and the study conducted by Columbia found that higher levels of sugar consumption were associated with higher instances of depression.
