Mood Booster

In the April 2010 issue of Prevention magazine,
an article, "Carb Your Enthusiasm"
discussed how the benefits of carbs can affect your
serotonin levels.
Researchers in Australia took one year and put a group on a low-carb diet.
Although they lost an average of 30 pounds per person, "the low-carb group felt more angry, depressed, and confused than the low-fat eaters" (45). So, go
ahead and eat that bagel; just make sure it's whole grain.
