I’ve always been a high-anxiety person. Even as a child, anxiety was just my thing. Even when things were going well and my life was calm, I was always waiting for the other shoe to drop or felt like someone was standing on my chest.
When I started to get more into nutritional research, I was seeing more and more information linking anxiety to nutrition. And while anxiety issues are not necessarily caused by what you eat (or don’t eat), that doesn’t mean that you aren’t contributing to your anxiety by eating foods that increase the symptoms.
