So i'm getting mixed messages about adding or reducing carbs for mood. In general i'm a high-strung person.I mean, getting overly worried about something, stressing out. But in particular, after becoming underweight and after recovery for a while, still I seem to get angry pretty quickly, or just rage if something bad happens.( For example a relative of mine decided she'll do a good deed to clean out my fridge, but she left my probiotic outside and ruined them. I started crying and was super mad, lucky she wasn't home.) Usually until the last 5 days or so , I've been around 50-80 grams of carb, sometimes less, sometimes more. Now i'm up to about 100-120 or so ( estimating I don't use fitday) I'm unsure if its helping or not because this whole week i've been sleep deprived, sleeping 4-7 1/2 hours. so if im angry this week that could be why.
I've heard some people say, that your brain doesn't feel "deprived of glucose" therefore your mood increases. Some people say that low carb helps their moods.
What do you think? What has your experience been?
