Dr. Neal Barnard joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll to share what you can eat that may improve depression and even help prevent it in the first place. Are there better options than an entire pint of ice cream or whole pizza?

Dr. Josh Cullimore then examines whether a cup of coffee can help boost your mood as well.

On the flip side, the group also discusses whether the joy of a junk food binge is only temporary. Could your favorites actually send you into a deeper depression?

Other questions answered from The Doctor’s Mailbag

  • What is the healthiest way to fast?
  • What is a good A1C for someone eating a plant-based diet?
  • Should you buy organic beans?
  • And many more.
