Yes, change it: Stop consuming high carb foods (grains, lentils, potatoes based items). Also avoid milk protein since it causes inflammation. All these foods cause heart disease and anxiety. Consume whole eggs, fish, meats, vegetables, avocados, saturated fat (butter, coconut oil), olive oil daily. Get 30-45 minutes of sunshine daily at noon or take vitD3 10,000 IU/day. You should notice a difference in 1 month
