    This may come as a surprise, but the two can disrupt your mood. They have excessive amount of refined sugar in them, which can spike blood sugar levels, thereby depleting energy and leaving you with a bad mood.

    Fried food

    French fries, fried chicken and other fried foods can contribute to depression. Fried in hydrogenated oils, French fries are high in trans fats, which can have a negative effect on your mood.

    You are sad and drink to that thinking it will make you better. The effect is not what you think it will be. It is a central nervous system depressant. You may enjoy a drink or two, but don’t binge thinking it will make you happy. It will NOT.
