Anxiety And The Food You Eat
If you have any form of anxiety, then you know that it can often make you feel like you are on edge.
According to the National Institute of Mental Health, anxiety disorders affect 40 million adults in the United States in any given year, about 18% of the population. That makes anxiety disorders the most common mental illness in the country.
There are many symptoms of anxiety that may, in part, be put down to lifestyle — hectic work schedules and busy lives can sometimes contribute to feelings of anxiety. But have you ever wondered whether there are foods that cause anxiety?
The health benefits of eating healthy foods don’t just stop at weight loss! Eating a well-balanced, healthy diet can help your entire body, including your nervous system, which plays a large role in feelings of anxiousness. Common anxiety-related gut symptoms and conditions include indigestion, cramps, diarrhea, constipation, loss of appetite, and nausea. Anxiety exacerbates Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).
Eating certain foods may cause anxiety conditions to feel worse; just like eating some foods can have a positive, calming effect on your body and mind. While diet isn’t the main cause of anxiety for many people, a healthy diet can help with the management of some anxiety symptoms.
Knowing what foods to eat and what foods to avoid eating with anxiety may help you to manage your symptoms.
Foods to avoid if you have anxiety
Sugary Foods / Drinks
After consuming excess sugar, you will generally feel a burst of energy and then a drop in blood sugar levels. This can not only leave you feeling tired and sluggish, it may also make you feel anxious.
Sometimes when we are feeling stressed or overwhelmed, the idea of indulging in a big fast food combo is tempting. Unfortunately, having a burger, fries, and soda may lead to feelings of anxiety after eating it, due to the number of preservatives and food chemicals it may contain.
White bread is nothing more than sugars and starches that will send your blood sugar soaring, creating a crash later, which will leave you shaky, cranky, and full of anxiety. If you choose to buy bread, be sure to buy 100% whole grain or even better, sprouted grain bread.
Chips are a big no-no in terms of avoiding foods that heighten anxiety. Chips, which are full of (usually) unhealthy fats, can cause your arteries to clog, encourage overeating, and can make your blood pressure rise due to the sodium and processed ingredients
Man-made food additives have been used for so many years to enhance the appearance and flavor of our food but not many people realize just how bad they can be for you. There is an association between some of these additives found in foods and anxiety symptoms. Food dyes can often be found in soft drinks, salad dressings, fruit juices and cheese. Some food dyes, particularly Red #40 and Yellow #5, can disrupt normal nervous system function, which may increase symptoms of anxiety after eating them.
Dr. Julie’s tips for reducing anxiety and maintaining digestive health
- Eat real, whole foods: Your body needs clean, nutrient-rich food in order to repair its digestive organs, the first step in restoring total body health.
- Help your digestive system with enzymes: With digestive enzyme production slowed by anxiety, enzyme supplements can help break down food to provide necessary nutrients so your body can heal itself.
- Get plenty of pure water and vegetable fiber
- Eases constipation and flushes toxins from cells.
- Get sufficient sleep and daily exercise
- Probiotics: Supplementing meals with sources of good bacteria can help restore gut health
- Chew your food: Chewing food thoroughly breaks it down so that it can be digested more easily. The act also produces saliva, needed for proper mixing of food in your stomach.
- Manage your anxiety
- Fix or disconnect from chronic sources of anxiety in your life.
- Use spices and natural digestive aids to help break down what you eat: Certain cultures add ginger to their food, which is super for digestion. Others add hot peppers –a stimulant to the digestive tract which helps secrete more hydrochloric acid. There are cultures that use a lot of turmeric, which is good for digestion. There are other aperitifs that get the digestive enzymes flowing. Some people add pineapple to their meat dishes to help break it down and you can always use formulated enzyme supplements, like AbsorbAid.

I’m Done With Masks
“Who knew that little pieces of plastic or cloth worn over the nose and mouth could turn people into complete idiots? Masks have led us astray since the first days of the COVID-19 pandemic.” Opinion piece by David Mastio, USA TODAY

Is Uncertainty the Only Thing Certain in Our Future?
“Lions, and tigers, and bears, oh my” were the threats to Dorothy, Toto, and her friends in The Wizard of Oz. The trip to the Emerald City and hope for help to return Dorothy to Kansas was risky at best. The journey was uncertain yet seemed the only alternative available to the group.
In 2022, we find ourselves in the third year of a pandemic unseen for 100 years.
Instead of a clear path toward its conclusion, we can only be certain of continued uncertainty.
Supply chain issues first Americans experienced since World War II rationing gas, sugar, etc.
We are used to instant gratification, ordering online this morning and receiving delivery later in the day or the following day.
Food supply interruptions and inflation further erase any sense of individual control of life.
Common sense has vanished among those entrusted to lead the country as politics invades every area of life is a struggle between retaining the founding principles or abandoning them in favor of socialist government control.
As I wrote in Navigating Life’s Journey: Common Sense in Uncommon Times, uncertainty results in anxiety and grief. It is exponentially worse for those inexperienced in life’s challenges.
We have two choices to respond to difficulty.
- Hunker down, and wait for it to end, which appeals to the risk-averse crowd.
- Utilize the time to grow, learn, prepare, and seize opportunities others avoid to leapfrog the first group in the pursuit of life’s dreams.
How Can We Best Emerge and Thrive from Uncertainty?
- Expect to experience loss of control, uncertainty, and change in life.
- Anticipate those events and prepare yourself.
- Don’t panic when life throws you a curveball.
- Adapt your activities to survive until you’re able to regain control.
- Respond to future shocks in life with more confidence from your experiences.
No one knows when, or if, we will emerge from the pandemic, inflation, supply issues, political unrest, or yet to be revealed future crises.
Our only choice is our attitude when facing life and our response to problems beyond our control.
Viktor Frankl taught us this lesson from his concentration camp experience and wrote of it in Man’s Search for Meaning.
