      We often eat when we feel stressed or depressed

    Correct Answer
    B. We often eat when we feel stressed or depressed
    Explanation

    Drinking coffee is not necessarily a recommended method to relieve stress.

Additionally, excessive caffeine consumption can disrupt sleep patterns, leading to further stress and fatigue. Therefore, it is not accurate to say that one should drink coffee to relieve stress.

    Carbohydrates cause the brain to release serotonin. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Carbohydrates cause the brain to release serotonin because they increase the production of insulin, which helps in the absorption of amino acids, except for tryptophan. As a result, tryptophan levels increase in the brain, leading to the production of serotonin. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that plays a crucial role in regulating mood, appetite, and sleep. Therefore, consuming carbohydrates can have a positive impact on serotonin levels and contribute to improved mood and overall well-being.
