Has anyone found the keto diet to help with depression? Could a person be able to get off meds?

Although I am feeling more confident (which improved my mood), I’ve had bad experiences coming off my antidepressants so I will not try again right now.

While my depression is better eating keto and my lows aren’t as low, I do continue to take Paxil. I have had my dose lowered but I have been taking it for 17 years and the withdrawal from it is too hard for me to wean off it. I have recurrent major depression but I do find my anxiety is completely gone eating keto. Everyone is different and if you haven’t been on meds long, talk to your doctor and see what they think about you weaning off. Please do not stop taking your medication without doctor approval.

It seems to have helped with my inertia and mental fog. Actual feel more motivated in many areas.

The shocking difference in my mood after having under 20g of Carbs for weeks then to consciously have a cheat meal (oh I justified the hell out of allowing myself to do that) was ALARMING. I had been feeling peaceful and unstressed for weeks before this. I sat down at this table ate carbs like ridiculous. And within five minutes of leaving that place, I found myself having road rage, thinking really negative thoughts, feeling angry at everything. I was so irritable it truly was shocking. Night and day difference. I remember thinking at the time it was happening was “what the F—!” Seriously shocked at how my mood was affected by carbs. I won’t forget it.

Not sure about going off meds, since I was never on meds but it absolutely HAS helped me. I have a lot more energy and being more productive and that alone gives me purpose and helps any down days I have.
