    The Mood Cure saved my life!

    I bought The Mood Cure over two years ago. Per my usual habit, I added it to the ever-increasing pile of unread self-help books littering my apartment. Fast forward twenty-six months, I am unemployed in massive debt, living with my parents, overweight and unfit with poor skin, and suffering the most devastating episode of major depression in a long history of cyclical depressive periods. I have never been closer to suicide.

    Fortunately, I had finished the last novel of my current library books. Having no desire to actually utilize the resume and job-hunting guides, which constituted the remainder of my loaners, I decided to read The Mood Cure. Thank providence!

    In under three weeks of following Julia Ross' simple and easy prescription of "good mood foods," and vitamin, mineral, and amino acid supplements, I have revolutionized my life. Now, I still have crushing debt, am overweight, jobless, and living at home. But, as those annoying folks so often say, "Attitude is everything." I have not felt natural optimism like this since my early childhood. My skin has improved. I lost five pounds without exercise while eating about 2,100 calories per day. I started using those resume books. And, most importantly, I have hope. I had forgotten what that was.

    Improve Your Mood Through Proper Nutrition

    The short review: This book aims to improve your mood mainly be making changes in your diet, particularly by recommending specific amino acids.

    The longer review: The book begins by having the reader distinguish between false moods and true emotions by having them complete a questionnaire. By doing this, you can see which false mood type (or types) you seem to fit. From there, you are directed to certain chapters for a more individualized treatment. Action steps at the end of chapters tell you exactly what to do.

    All-in-all it's certainly a valuable resource with much information. Know that it aims to primarily improve moods through nutritional means, which is a much overlooked area in my opinion, and anyone struggling with chronic bad moods is encouraged to check it out. Other books I liked that also take a natural approach include "Exercise Beats Depression". :)

    Sanity finally!

    I stumbled across this book by mistake. I picked it up and read bits and pieces and already knew it was what I needed. I went on to reading just the first couple of chapters and was amazed at what I learned. It's easy to understand how nutrition and certain suppliments assit the in process of creating good moods. I was all to used to having bad moods, and it created havoc in my relationships with people. I hated my life and wanted a change. Once I started the easy plan that Julia described in just 2-3 chapters. I no longer felt the need to abusing substances for curbing my moods. I was no longer holding on to hurtful comments even thought they probably weren't hurtful at all. I had simply preceived things differently before. I did not even need to see a therapist! If it could help a person like I was I know it can help you. You just have to read it and do it. It's not that hard to pop one suppliment to give a more positive outlook.

    Interesting but did not work for me

    This book proposes that changes in diet and nutritional supplements can eliminate four types of 'false moods': a dark cloud, blahs, stress, or too much sensitivity. Admittedly, the author provides a fairly convincing argument to support her diet deficiency theory. It's not even that difficult to apply the dietary suggestions to yourself. However, I tried the suggestions for two months and didn't notice any improvement in my blah moods.
