Cathy Creager got tired of being hungry and tired all the time and in 2007, she began a low carb lifestyle. As a result, her food cravings disappeared and her energy level rose. And her blood lipid levels and blood sugar levels became things of beauty.
Cathy is paying close attention to some studies linking omega-3 fatty acid deficiency to the increasing rate of mood disorders in recent years.
"The increase in rates of depression over recent decades is well documented. The reasons for this increase are not completely clear, but numerous studies have linked the decline in consumption of omega-3 fatty acids to an increase in mood disorders across populations."
Salmon and mackerel and other fatty fish are good sources of omega-3's. So are flax seed, and watnut oils. Beef, cheese and milk from grass-fed cows, and eggs and meat from grass-fed chickens, all help fill in that omega-3 gap.
