Hearing about the evil taking place in our world...
Nearly two years ago when I began eating a gluten-free and dairy-free, mostly vegan diet, the dark feelings of depression lifted and I no longer have to deal with it as I did for many years. This may not be a real issue for some, but for me changing my diet has been the biggest boon to my physical and emotional health -- ever!
When I am tempted to order a big juicy burger or delve into a frosting-laden birthday cake, or cook up a big batch of bacon for myself, I remember the hopeless feelings of depression, the headaches, and amount of painful time spent in the bathroom. The temptation to eat those things vanishes. Sometimes you have to hit the bottom before you can become truly convinced of the necessity for change.
