Your Prescription: More Omega-3s

Unfortunately, over the last 150 years, "we've greatly minimized the amount of omega-3s in our diet," says Mary Morreale, MD, a psychiatrist at Wayne State University School of Medicine in Detroit. The American Psychiatric Association recommends that all adults eat two to three servings of oily fish such as salmon each week, for instance. Grass-fed beef, chicken and pork (which have higher omega-3 levels than their corn-fed brethren), avocados and nuts are other good sources. Aim for about 2 grams (g) a day—what you'll get by eating a 4-ounce piece of salmon or a quarter cup of walnuts. (Confused about the difference between good fats and bad fats?
