Posted Nov 15 2012 11:37am
(1888PressRelease) The press release underlines the original content of the new ebook Good Food for a Good Mood written by life coach Elisabetta Reist. This ebook is not meant for anxiety sufferers only as it offers a more extensive proposal for a change of eating habits that can improve the health of everyone.
The toxin-reducing qualities of black sesame seeds, abundance of phyto-chemicals in potatoes and the powerful stress conquering qualities of almonds and artichokes - these are just some of the fascinating facts in Life Coach Elisabetta Reist's new book Good Food for a Good Mood.
Packed full of useful tips and wise words, the 37-page long e-book aims to help anxiety sufferers overcome their terrifying and debilitating condition by looking at the relationship between the foods they put into their body and their emotional state. But it is also a nutritional lifestyle guide for anyone who wishes to optimise their energy and health through diet. In an easy-to-read and no-nonsense manner Good Food for a Good Mood includes advice on the best foods to eat in order to remain calm and energised.
Therapist Elisabetta Reist, a former anxiety sufferer herself, said: "Just as our mind and body can't really be separated, neither can we compartmentalise our diet from our moods.
"Long lasting freedom from anxiety and devastating mood swings can be achieved by simply changing what you put into your mouth."
In the book Elisabetta shows how easy and inexpensive it is to eat foods which will benefit - rather than deplete - the body. Most of the foods she recommends can be bought at a supermarket and take little preparation so fit easily into busy lifestyles. Good food, she insists, is not necessarily organic, but it is natural.
She points out you can still have most of the foods typically classed as 'junk food' if you prepare them in different ways such as steaming potatoes or forming them into hash browns.
Good Food for a Good Mood goes on to explain how spicy foods exacerbate symptoms of anxiety and why, in order to digest better, populations should stick to their indigenous culture's cooking and preparation techniques.
There's also a handy checklist for the different types of B vitamins the body requires in order to combat stress, together with a guide to which food groups can provide them.
Despite the successful resolution of her own food-related difficulties with anxiety, Elisabetta is no evangelist. She understands how difficult it can be to switch from a lifetime of poor eating habits and that, for many individuals, this must be achieved in stages.
But she is convinced that once individuals embark on eating healthier foods the freedom from anxiety and other benefits this brings such as better sleep and clearer thinking, will give them further encouragement to commit to a healthier lifestyle.
She added: "The more natural energy you provide your body through a healthy diet, the better you'll be able to cope with life's demands and enjoy the pleasures which are available each and every day.
"Eating well can be easy and fun and is the first thing to consider when you're feeling anxious - not the last. Good food really can put you in a good mood."
