Today’s episode is part 1 of 2 because talking about eating to beat depression is THAT DAMN IMPORTANT. My guest today was a toughie to book - but soooo worth being that annoying persistent “oh god these people are going to hate me. If they’re even seeing these 39 emails” girl for. But I was elated to talk Dr. Drew Ramsey, who is a true pioneer in the space of mental health. He’s a psychiatrist who actually believes in the power of food or using “nutritional interventions” to help peeps overcome depression, anxiety and other emotional wellness issues -- hence his perfect nickname: the food shrink. Dr. Ramsey’s has a popular NYC clinic called the Brain Food Clinic, but he doubles as a farm boy who spends time doing farm stuff on his 127 acre organic farm in rural Indiana. He has a terrific ecourse called Eat To Beat Depression, he’s written 3 books including one called The Happiness Diet, another called Eat Complete: The 21 Nutrients that Fuel Brain Power, Boost Weight Loss and Transform Your Health and another called 50 Shades of Kale, which you’ll hear is a plant he’s particularly passionate about.


Feel HAPPY because you’re about to learn:


  • The GIANT impact food has on our mental health
  • What the difference between mood and mental health really is
  • The NUMBER ONE rule about mental health
  • How to tell if you're in a bad mood or if it's more
  • That mental health struggles are totally normal and affect way more people than you think
  • Why functioning doesn't necessarily mean you're brain is healthy
  • What Dr. Ramsey thinks the fifth vital sign should really be
  • How medicine, food, and exercise work together to improve mental health
  • Some very convincing data that your diet totally correlates to your mental health
  • What you should do INSTEAD of taking supplements
  • What to eat (and NOT to eat) for brain health
  • Some bad advice you shouldn't listen to anymore
  • And so much more!
