TRY THIS: Check labels for artificial additives. Do you feel better if you avoid colourings such as tartrazine (E102), flavour enhancers such as monosodium glutamate (MSG or E621), artificial sweeteners such as aspartame (E951), and preservatives such as sulphur dioxide (E220) and BHT (E321)?

‘I recommend you go slowly, change one thing at a time and monitor the effects. Tell yourself “if this does work I’ll know quickly – if it doesn’t I’ll try something else”.’Food and Mood Survey participant
