I've suffered from depression for my whole life, and burn out for the last ten years. I've been keeping a journal for the last two months, and it's finally made me see that all my depression and energy crashes stem from stress.
People talk about stress management all the time, but I don't believe many people actually know how to do it. People take holidays / go for a assage etc., but the only way to combat stress is to be aware of when it's happening: not when you're alreayd stressed. It's a "every moment" process.
If you don't think stress is the cause then I recommend keeping a journal so that you can begin to notice patterns in your mood / cycle / diet / sleep etc.

"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
