> Hey Everyone,
> Anyone find diet changes or life style changes help with depression. I was reading about actor Jim Carrey (from "Ace Ventura-Pet Detective" and "The Truman Show") and his battle with depression/bipolar disease. He said once he adjusted his diet, his depression resolved.
> I have heard about avoiding aspartame and alcohol, coffee helping depression, avoiding over slepting, omega 3 oil, exercise helping. Anyone have experience with these helping or other advice?

my findings are as follows:
- any amount of booze makes me much more likely to be severely depressed over the next 2-3 days
- exercise doesn't really help me. I cycle to work 3-4 times a week [this is in London so you have to go fast :-) ] but I find it doesn't really help much
- oversleeping makes my depression worse
- cutting out coffee hasn't made any difference
- smoking weed [I never inhaled, honest] really knocks me down for 3-4 days

Cheers and good luck with your quest...
