A recent survey shows that in obese people, who participated in the movement and adjust the rest to rule-based weight loss program, who will be able to improve mood.
One expert said that the people who participate in weight loss program, minus the number of pounds of meat really is not important, but to take action itself to lose weight to play a role in this. As we all know, obesity can cause many diseases, including depression mental illness. Previous research has demonstrated that, in a weight loss program, even if little less weight, or still maintain the original condition, but it can improve obese people’s physical and psychological state.
The research results have been published in the International Journal of Obesity, the researchers, Dr. Anthony said: “I can not say weight loss program is a treatment of depression with clinical trials of alternatives, but for those who are overweight or obese because of the possible emotional depressed people, participation in weight-loss plan can really improve the mood. ”

In the study, obese patients were randomly assigned to different types of weight-loss program, lose weight, including diet, exercise, weight loss or weight loss words and deeds of such norms, there are some patients to take medication approach to weight loss. The rest of the people is completely not involved in weight loss program designed to work with people who participate in weight-loss program for comparison.
In this particular study, researchers recorded the before and after weight loss weight loss emotional state, and mark out the exact weight loss results. Overall, those who participate in weight-loss programs have been significantly improved mood, and diet and exercise based on the “healthy natural” way to lose weight often have better results. Patients rely on drugs to lose weight, might also lose weight, but not much effect on emotional adjustment.
It is also important, that is, weight-loss plan, minus the weight of each person how much and how much they improve mood, and not directly.
Dr. Anthony said, because the people involved in weight loss program weight generally in less of the original 5% -10%, the emotions can be the biggest improvement over this value, minus the amount of weight will not help improve mood.
Of course, get rid of fat is not the only reason for improved mood, North Carolina Smith, a researcher said: “Some studies have shown that fitness, weight loss and increased exercise time can make the spirit of joy.” In addition to weight loss than that , will bring many positive factors, such as to form a more perfect.
