Does the Moon make you crazy?
 

Does the Moon make you crazy?

Posted in HOROSCOPE ARTICLES on August 17, 2010

As the Moon's shape shifts from a slim crescent to a full orb, its influence upon our bodies can be felt in ways ranging from pleasant to painful. Below, learn what kinds of foods you can use to make the Full Moon's effects less noticeable on your body and in your mind.

Let Go of Sleepless Nights

If you are prone to insomnia, a Full Moon can exacerbate your symptoms. However, that doesn't mean that you need to spend the night tossing, turning, and punching your pillow as you attempt to get a good night's sleep!

Try these food tips to help lure yourself to sleep:
  1. About a week before the Moon achieves its fullest shape, begin cutting back on your caffeine. You might try drinking half-caffeinated and half-decaf coffee, for example, and substitute caffeine-free soda for regular. Better yet, just drink water!
  2. Enjoy foods high in tryptophan, such as turkey and dairy products.
  3. Keep your bedtime snack on the lighter side, such as a graham cracker spread with a teaspoon of cream cheese and a cup of decaf, herbal tea.
Ease That Anxiety

The looming Moon has been linked to feelings of anxiety. The problem: many of us respond to anxiety by reaching for a sugary treat such as a doughnut or an enormous coffeehouse beverage topped with whipped cream. Although that combination of sugar and fat may temporarily soothe your anxiety, the resulting crash can leave you craving even more empty carbs.

Try these food tips to ease your anxiety:
  1. Go for lean protein combined with veggies. For example, you could enjoy a broiled chicken breast with sliced tomatoes for lunch, sprinkled with Italian herbs. Topped with black olives (a healthy form of fats), this lunch will give you a healthy dose of energy.
  2. Again, kick the caffeine habit! Coffee throughout the morning, a soda with lunch, espresso after dinner... all that caffeine can give you jitters even when the Moon is at its slimmest! Try low-caffeine green tea in the morning, water with lunch, and herb tea after dinner to encourage calmness.
Track Your Diet and Set Achievable Goals

Studies have shown that when the Moon is full, we tend to eat almost 10 percent more food throughout the day, and as much as 25 percent more when it comes to alcoholic beverages.

If beer and burritos are calling your name when the Moon is full, respond with these suggestions:
  1. Keep a food diary. By tracking your food intake (yes, including those spoonfuls of ice cream that you eat standing in front of the freezer!), you can be your own "food detective" and figure out what you need to change (for example, those three basketfuls of tortilla chips with lunch at the restaurant!).
  2. Choose attainable goals. Many would-be-good dieters, for example, think that beverages don't count - but those mochas at the coffeehouse, the mid-morning orange juice, and soda at noon can add up to 500 calories or even more, depending on the size and type. By simply substituting low-calorie or calorie-free beverages, such as green tea and water, you can easily cut out 500 calories a day.
