When I was at my lowest points, with anxiety and depression hitting me hard, eating became much less of a priority.
That was a real problem, because low energy is one of the biggest contributing factors to the fear cycle.
If you’re not giving your body the energy it needs to fight you’re going to be running on an empty tank, and even the fittest of mind can’t do that. You have to give your body and mind the chance to fight by giving it fuel (food).
I know first-hand how tough it can be to stomach food when your highly anxious and feeling depressed. You look at food and eating is the last thing you want to do.
I found the solution to this problem in Protein Shakes.
Protein Shakes aren’t just for bodybuilding - some are made as meal substitutes for dieting. Most decent Protein Shakes contain all the ingredients you need that a meal will offer. They can provide your body and mind with the energy you need to fight, and the best thing is you don’t need to eat a thing.
This wasn’t a long-term solution for me, and it shouldn’t be for you either. It’s just a way to get you through the tougher times, before you pick up those chopsticks and get back into the world of eating.
