Fat Family in Front of Fast Food Background

Depression and Carbohydrate Cravings

Researchers have shown a strong link between depression, carbohydrate cravings, diabetes, and insulin desensitivity.

Do you look forward to eating chips, white bread, chocolate, or drinking soda? Do you feel happy after eating your favorite carbs? If this is the case, you are being misled. The happiness you seek is actually fleeting away in a few minutes of gluttony. You must keep your eye on the long term effects.

The Cycle

Which came first the chicken or the egg? People that link carbohydrate cravings to depression think that depression is the driver. However, there is no real evidence. The only evidence we have is that there is a link between depression and carb cravings.

It makes more sense to me that putting junk into your body will cause it to become stressed. Stressors raise the hormone Cortisol. Then, according to doctor Sarah Liebowitz, Cortisol then releases a chemical neuropeptide y that turns on carbohydrate cravings.

A stressed body will look forward to carb snacking. It is like a huge part of your existence is from one carb to the next. Over time, the feel good chemicals in the brain (Serotonin) become lowered. The individual will become depressed and then look for relief through carbing up. What people need to realize is that the answer is to stop eating bad carbs and exercising. There will be some short term discomfort, but it is worth it.


There is an episode of the Simpsons that says it best. The town of Springfield banned all forms of addictive products like sugar, caffeine, and alcohol. It was a big fight to get the products banned. The interesting thing was that the people became happy. They started swimming in the lake and doing a lot of fun things instead of looking for a fix.

Drug History

Many of the drugs in history were once legal. Drugs like cocaine and morphine became widespread until a huge percentage of the population were no longer motivated to work or do much. Drugs are like that. They make you lose motivation for life. Instead you are looking only to the next time you do drugs.

Carbohydrate addiction is similar. It has the same effects. Only the effects are less pronounced. If you think about how great it will be the next time you drink a Coke or eat fast food, you are basically a drug addict.

Chromium Picolinate – Help for Carbohydrate Cravings

It is proven that carbohydrate cravings can be alleviated with Chromium Picolinate. The western diet barely has enough chromium to sustain life. Chromium Picolinate is the second most popular supplement taken. It helps to increase insulin sensitivity, regulate blood sugar, and reduce depression.

The studies have shown it to be much more effective for people that are already trending towards or that have diabetes. This means that a very healthy individual may not see any change. If you have severe cravings, it is certainly worth a try.
