I was so bad this morning, I baked a batch of blueberry muffins and ate my way through the entire batch in four hours!! This led to my having a huge crash and crying.. so I made myself a big bowl of fresh organic salad and suddenly I feel much better.
I can't stress enough how important eating healthy is for a person with bipolar. my whole life i've craved and indulged in the unhealthiest of sugary foods and just recently I started buying only healthy things at the grocery store, forcing me to eat a balanced diet and trying to get in my omega-3, b vitamins, lots of grain products, folic acid, lots of protein, lots and lots of berries and zinc and calcium, the basic "things that a bipolar person should eat" ive been able to come up with on the internet because i have no money right now in my spending account but as soon as i do i plan on buying a few books off amazon about controlling bipolar with diet (in addition to medication).
none of my posts are very organized as i just kind of type without thinking about where things are going but really, if you're feeling down, force yourself to eat the biggest healthiest meal you can come up with (or even order if you can't cook, just don't get junk)!!
