Having some level of control in recovery after alcoholism treatment can be helpful. One way to do this is to control the emotional strain is by ingesting carbohydrates.
Carbohydrates break down to form sugars, this triggering the release of serotonin – the hormone responsible for feelings of happiness and contentment. The body’s craving is explained by the imbalance that comes with detoxing. The effect is heightened, the healthier and more complex the carbohydrates are.
A few examples of such food items are:
- Whole Grains
- Brown rice
- Carrots and Corn
Approximately 30 grams is the recommended amount daily to keep the depression and bad feelings away. So go ahead, and snack a little.
