Ask a Health Coach: Foods to Help with Stress & Anxiety

Published: in Health News by .

Hey folks, Board-Certified Health Coach Chloe Maleski is here to answer your questions about what to eat (and what to avoid) when you’re feeling anxious. Struggle with stress, anxiety, or overwhelm? We’re here with guidance and support! Have a question you’d like to ask our health coaches? Leave it below in the comments or over in the Mark’s Daily Apple Facebook group.   Max asked: “I have really bad anxiety. Are there foods that can help? Any other ideas that don’t involve popping pills? I’m trying to take a natural approach but all the advice out there and people selling ‘solutions’ leave me more stressed. Thanks!” Sorry to hear you’re struggling, Max! You’re not alone in dealing with anxiety or in feeling overwhelmed by all the information, advice, and “solutions” out there. Good for you for exploring holistic options and recognizing that food can be helpful (or harmful) when it comes to mental health. This makes complete sense, after all! The food we eat is literally how we constitute ourselves, and there is no separation between body and mind. Traditional healing modalities have known this for thousands of years, and modern research in fields such as epigenetics and neuroplasticity offers an abundance of evidence! If you’re suffering from a serious mental health condition, you should consult a trained medical professional or therapist if that’s accessible to you. These days, more and more healthcare professionals are practicing functional medicine and taking a holistic approach. Meanwhile, there are certainly things you can do on your own. Regardless of whether you seek additional support, eating and lifestyle patterns play a pivotal role in how we feel in body and mind. As a Primal Health Coach, I work with many clients who struggle with feelings of anxiety, stress, and overwhelm. These days, the person who doesn’t encounter those is the exception! Let’s start with foods that contribute to anxiety…then look at foods that help. Foods that Make Anxiety Worse You probably already have a good idea which foods tend to make you feel more anxious, but here are six common culprits: Sugar Grains Highly processed and fast food Foods containing highly refined, inflammatory seed and vegetable oils Coffee and other forms of caffeine Alcohol If you’re a regular at Mark’s Daily Apple, the first four probably aren’t surprising! When we consume foods that disrupt our body’s natural signaling system and contribute to chronic inflammation, this puts stress on our entire body-mind ecology. Even for folks without conscious awareness around this, eating foods that aren’t healthy or supportive feels “off” on some level and contributes to subconscious unease. The body always knows! Coffee and alcohol warrant special mention here, because neither is considered off limits within Primal parameters. Indeed, I have many clients who eat Primal 100 percent of the time but way overdo coffee and/or alcohol intake—and feel the impact. Most people are aware of coffee’s energizing effects—that’s one reason they drink it! Along with a burst in energy, it causes a spike in … Continue reading “Ask a Health Coach: Foods to Help with Stress & Anxiety”

How to Eat Healthy in College

Published: in Health News by .

The stereotype of a typical college student’s diet is pretty grim. Ramen and fast food. Keggers and 2 a.m. pizza. All-nighters fueled by Red Bull and Cool Ranch Doritos®. Mostly tragic dining hall food. As with most stereotypes, this isn’t an accurate characterization. Oh, there’s plenty of pizza and energy drinks, but college isn’t really the health wasteland it’s made out to be. Many students eat normal meals at normal hours more often than not. They make at least some attempt to choose healthy fare. Dining halls try to present a variety of nutritious options—by conventional standards, not Primal ones, of course, but they do try. This is to say, it’s entirely possible to eat healthy in college. Granted, we might want to adjust our standards for what “healthy” looks like in this context (occasional all-nighters are better than frequent all-nighters). And even then, it’s not always easy. Kids who live on campus are limited to what they can prepare in cramped dorm rooms and forage from campus dining services. Time is often at a premium. Grocery bills add up, and getting to the grocery store isn’t always easy. Many students simply aren’t prepared for the responsibility of procuring and preparing their own food. The purpose of today’s post is to share some tips for how to eat healthy in college dining halls or on a budget. Use these ideas as inspiration, but know that you, dear student, don’t have to follow them to a tee to be healthy. We’re not trying to turn you into social pariahs who are unable to enjoy the occasional late-night drive-thru run with friends or movie night with piles of candy and popcorn. You have youth on your side, so you can probably get away with more excursions than we older folks. Still, good nutrition is vitally important. Your body and brain are still developing, and the rigors of college mean you’re frequently low on sleep and high on stress. Nutrient-dense, satisfying food is one of the ways you can support yourself and, to some degree, offset (or at least not add to) the stressors you can’t control. How to Make Healthier Food Choices in College 1. Get to know your surroundings. Finding the best food options at the best prices means shopping around. Explore the dining hall options. Even if you plan to eat mostly on campus using a meal plan, large universities often have multiple dining halls and minimarts for students. You might discover that the dining hall across campus has far superior breakfast options, but you prefer to stick closer to your dorm for dinner. Check out the local grocery stores, delis, and markets. See which ones have the best prices. Sign up for club cards and coupon apps. If you’re not thrilled by the offerings, consider ordering periodically from places like Thrive Market or Amazon. Perhaps your roommate or other students on your floor will want to go in on orders together. Scope out restaurants within walking or biking distance. … Continue reading “How to Eat Healthy in College”
