    Evolutionary Psychiatry
    The hunt for evolutionary solutions to contemporary mental health problems.
    by Emily Deans, M.D.
    The modern prescription of high carbohydrate, low fat diets and eating snacks between meals has coincided with an increase in obesity, diabetes, and and increase in the incidence of many mental health disorders, including depression, anxiety, and eating disorders. In addition, many of these disorders are striking the population at younger ages. While most people would agree that diet has a lot to do with the development of obesity and diabetes, many would disagree that what we eat has much to do with our mental health and outlook. I believe that what we eat has a lot to do with the health of our brains, though of course mental illness (like physical illness) has multifactorial causes, and by no means should we diminish the importance of addressing all the causes in each individual. But let's examine the opposite of the modern high carbohydrate, low fat, constant snacking lifestyle and how that might affect the brain.....

    Nice article. Dr. Deans was on a podcast with Chris Kresser that I really liked. Episode 13 – Dr. Emily Deans on nutrition and mental health
