Makes you wonder if the phrase “Happy Meal” is false advertising?
Apparently, eating fast food puts you in a bad mood . . . at least according to author Rachel Kelly who wrote a new book called “The Happiness Diet”.
She says that it’s because of all the trans fats in fast food, especially the fries. They mess with the levels of omega-3 fatty acids in your body, which can lead to you being pessimistic, aggressive, and depressed.
And fast food isn’t the only food that she says will bum you out . . . basically everything that tastes good will, such as diet soda . . . sugary cereal . . . prepackaged donuts . . . shortening and margarine . . . salty snacks . . . and canned food.
