It’s not an accident that when we think about the “good
life” we picture festivals and family gatherings, and these
usually involve food. But food plays an even bigger role
than we might imagine in our physical and mental
wellbeing.
Researchers at Deakin University’s Food and Mood Centre
have conducted studies and collated many more from
around the world showing that certain habits and food
choices lead to higher sustainable wellbeing. The answer
is much less to do with “going on a diet” which is typically
associated with heavy restrictions on calorie intake and a
feeling of deprivation which can be very hard to sustain
long-term. Instead, a much more successful and positive
strategy is to choose different types of food that
contribute to your overall health.
The bottom line: a Mediterranean diet has consistently
been shown to be one of the healthiest ways to eat.
Whether or not you lose weight, eating according to a
Mediterranean diet can help you live longer and improve
your mental wellbeing.
