Is Britney Spear's 'Toxic' Diet Causing Her Erratic Behavior?

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- From Britney Spears to Lindsay Lohan, young Hollywood stars are imploding. Spears and others are routinely photographed carrying sugar and fat-laden coffee drink and eating fast food. No doubt a host of issues may be at work, but one thing is clear --- the toxic diet of many celebrities can cause big problems.

Bestselling author, Dr. Timothy Brantley has taught his methods of naturally restoring physical and emotional health to thousands of people, including well-known celebrities, among them: Sylvester Stallone, Kelsey Grammar and Kelly Rowland. According to Dr. Brantley, the brain communicates by chemical neurotransmitters; which are created in the brain from the food we consume. You may be able to better balance your mood by knowing which "mood foods" to avoid and which to incorporate into your diet.

BAD MOOD FOODS

Greasy Fast Food

Burgers can linger in your stomach for a long time and can zap your energy for hours to come.

Caffeine

Caffeine can be addictive, altering brain chemistry in a way similar to amphetamines, often triggering irritability and agitation.

Alcohol

According to press reports Britney Spears indulged in Margaritas prior to her infamous MTV VMA thumbs-down performance. Connect the dots - alcohol is a sedative that can cause dehydration, muscle weakness, and inability to focus.

Sugar

Sugar causes mood swings and fatigue, hyperactivity, anxiety and can lead to emotional instability, as well as obesity.

Soda

Commercial sodas often contain high levels of sodium that can cause dehydration. The caffeine content in many sodas, particularly so-called "energy drinks," can cause weight gain, bloating, memory loss, inattention and anxiety.

GOOD MOOD FOODS

Omega 3

Omega 3 fatty acids have mood lifting benefits and help alleviate depression. Foods rich in Omega 3 include salmon, flaxseed, and walnuts.

Folic acid and B12

Low blood levels of folate and vitamin B12 may be related to depression. Folic acid rich foods include: lentils, oatmeal and broccoli. Foods loaded with mood enhancing B12 include: salmon and organic beef.

Vitamin D

Stave off the winter blues with a bit of sunshine and foods rich in Vitamin D like fish and egg yolks.

Tryptophan

Serotonin production is facilitated by tryptophan. Foods that are tryptophan-rich includes: raw milk, yogurt, eggs, meat, nuts, beans, fish and almonds.

Dr. Timothy Brantley has been an independent researcher utilizing naturopathic principles for many years. He is a frequent guest on The Rachael Ray Show, Montel Williams Show and Dr. Pat radio program. Dr. Brantley's very popular blog is currently featured in The Huffington Post. His best-selling new book, "The Cure: Heal Your Body, Save Your Life" (Wiley) prescribes a plan for empowering people to cure disease and restore vibrant health.
