This month's publication: A brief diet intervention can reduce symptoms of depression in young adults – A randomised controlled trial
Why is this paper important? Lifestyle interventions and improving diet quality are associated with weight loss and reduced risk of mortality; however we may not consider or discuss with patients the other benefits. This study showed that improving dietary patterns was associated with a reduction in symptoms of depressed mood. Read the review.
