Haha -- well, since I live on the Mediterranean Coast, eating this diet isn't hard for me. LOL - My issue is that I have a lot of grain intolerances and intolerances to a lot of vegetarian sources of protein, so I eat mainly meat and veggies.

It's hard to say CATIATM. I try hard to follow the Mediterranean Diet... although it really isn't a diet at all but a way of life. Eating more fish, and less red meats, more fresh fruits and veggies and I take Fish Oil Supplements daily.

I don't believe in "NO Fat" either, but I do try to follow the "LOW Fat" rule. I think good healthy fats are good for us, like olive oil & avocados. I know I don't get enough of those healthy fats each day that's why I've added the fish oil supplement.

Hmm ... I'm not sure what to think. My mood has actually improved since I started eating more fat. What changed? I now eat way fewer carbs and sugars. I wonder if they looked at that factor. Foods high in transfats are usually also high in refined sugars and simple carbs.

What do you think?

Thank you for that article Becky. My DH has diabetes and before he was diagnosed I really think he had depression, although it was never diagnosed. Now that he's on meds and eating somewhat better he has less moments where he's moody & feeling bad. He told me yesterday that he wants to try and lose 10 pounds over lent-I'm so happy! I'm going to try & get him to sign up here on sparkpeople. Wish me luck! I know that I'm feeling better without the junk food-although I don't think it's affected my mood too much.

Eating fatty foods may up your risk for depression. The study also found that people who ate a lot of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, like those found in olive oil, had a lower risk of depression but that association diminished when researchers controlled for other dietary factors such as adherence to the Mediterranean diet.
