I think it's kind of crazy that you guys are doubting that diet affects mental processes and hormone levels. Im not sure where that comes from but it's a strange argument that's being made. Humans havent evolved in any real way for 40k years. Our bodies and minds were not meant for this world and the food we eat is a load of foreign shit.
    I think it's strange that you say it's genetic but say it's also food in the same paragraph.

    Again

    Go ahead and tidy up the diet. Maybe you will look or feel better.

    But it won't overcome learned behavior, trauma informed conditions, spiritual voids, chemical imbalances etc...

    You mentioned cardio as a treatment for depression earlier and even that is not quite right. Treatment? Sure. Cure? **** no.

    When I limit my daily intake of trenbologny sandwiches, it seems to help my sense of well-being and reduce my anxiety. But they are delicious.

    In all seriousness, I have mixed feelings and see points on both sides of opinion, but I say go for it. You may know this already, but if you are looking to reduce inflammation, the best way (diet-wise) is to do IM and keto. I'm not sure it will "fix" your problem, but I'm sure it could help you feel better... Either way, the health benefits alone of reducing inflammation are huge, so go for it.

    Thanks to everyone responding. This is all a process and it's about refusing to be satisfied with coping. Im better than Ive been in years probably but I want more. Ive spoken with Jin quite a bit on the subject and we are definitely on the same page. Im just looking for an attack from every angle. Drinking coffee and matcha tea instead of diet bullshit and noticing some differences from that already. Throat feels better and energy crashes in the afternoon have been gone.

    Alright so Im about ten days in now. So far I have completely removed diet soda but also taken steps to remove as much inflammatory shit as possible (processed foods, vegetable oil, soy, sugar, etc) and drastically increased antioxidants and omega 3s (9 caps fish oil daily, olive oil, berries, veggies, avocado, etc).

    It's very early to determine how this is affecting mental state as depression is the single most susceptible condition to the placebo affect but so far I feel much much better. I cant remember the last situation I felt the familiar panic trigger, but Im also sleeping better, and my brain feels way sharper.

    Physically, I now have zero energy crashes during the day and my face is not all puffy like before. Ive kinda always carried that dbol look but its gone as is the redness.

    If this continues, Ill likely go full paleo as well as add one day per week of Intermittent Fasting.

    Glad you're feeling better, hope it gets even better as you go forward.

    I know there's different definitions of paleo, and I tried a pretty strict version of it a few years back, basically just meat, fruit, and nuts, good oils. No potatoes, rice, oats, etc..

    Anyway, my energy level was ZERO whenever I tried to do anything intense. Felt great otherwise though. Added those carb sources back in, and everything was good again.

    Potatos and white rice are fine. It's not low carb. But lots of people make it into that

    Yeah, I made that mistake. It would've been perfectly fine if there was no intense exercise involved, but you find out REALLY quickly that fats can't keep up with energy demands. You don't have that top gear.
