Weight loss: Dr Mosley shares ‘most effective’ diet for both physical and mental health

“Foods that contain prebiotics form the basis of the Psychological Diet – a diet rich in vegetables and fiber that is good for your brain, keeping your mood and anxiety levels in check.

It serves as a ‘fertilizer’ for the beneficial bacteria and encourages them to multiply and, in time, to counteract the effects of the more harmful bacteria.

“Leeks, onions, and garlic are all prebiotics.”

“Fermented foods such as kefir, miso paste, kombucha, and sauerkraut help fortify the good bacteria in the gut, while fruits, vegetables and whole foods rich in fiber nourish the gut microbiome and allow it to grow,” added Dr. Mosley.
