Re: Tryptophan Depletion: The Path to Depression, Low Self-esteem, Obsession, and Eating Disorders

Judging by the website layout, probably not.

It also goes against what Peat says.

From personal experience, low serotonin for me puts me in a relaxed state. It's the opposite of anxious or obsessive. My advice is to experiment and find out for yourself what rings true.
