Food with lots of sugar and fat is associated with significant psychologic distress. This conclusion comes from a study of nearly quarter million Californians participating in the California Health Interview Survey.
The study showed that nearly 17 percent of Californians had psychological distress associated with frequently consuming unhealthy foods. Other factors such as gender, age, and socioeconomic status were less important.
This represents more proof that “you are what you eat.” To maintain your weight and your health, stick with clean foods: fruits and vegetables with the addition of chicken and fish as protein sources.
