Question Does depression cause or weight loss?

Hi all,
Is there any relation between depression and weight loss? What famous professor of Edward says about this thread: “When you are depressed, it is much harder to get out of bed, much less pay attention to what you are eating,” says Edward Abramson, PhD, an emeritus professor of psychology at California State University at Chico.

Basically, I've lost about 30 pounds twice now and have gained about half of it back each time. It seems whenever I reach 170 lbs or so (only 10 lbs away from being in a healthy BMI for me), some event happens, I get incredibly stressed and end up saying Speed Testit'.

The point is that you don't have the energy to eat or be active, then yes, you will lose weight, but at what cost. And when you get back to normal, the weight comes back. Not the best way to lose weight, I don't recommend it.

Guess it all depends how one deals with depression. Biologically, whether meds cause any weight gain, and genetics too. I added exercise into all my phases of dealing with sadness and depression. My exercise always helped me to pull my head out of the gutter.

Good luck with your research ? about depression and weight issues

I think if you take your depression too seriously and you're a serious patient then maybe your weight will be lost as well.
When I was a depression patient I exercise daily and keep myself motivated and my weight was still same and I overcome this issue within less time.

I've always had problems with being overweight and I couldn't lose weight. It was difficult. So I decided that I would see a nutritionist. But it was hard for me to give up food. I would look at myself in the mirror and I just hated what I saw. I got depressed. And I didn't stop eating. I started eating more. Because I knew I couldn't lose weight. I saw on the internet an article about Steven Yohay. He was the CEO of his organization in the mental health industry. By all indications, I knew I was starting to have mental health problems. And I realized that I needed to solve them first and then I needed to lose weight.

Actually it's inverted, depression helps in weight gain. Even I had gone through this stage in lockdown. I had gone through 3 acupuncture sittings and it really helped me a lot. I would highly recommend it.

My depression was caused by my divorce from my husband... Roughly speaking I found out that he had registered on Tinder and started flirting with other girls. Understandably, it disappointed me. I found this out when I decided to install a spy app on his phone and see where he most often sits and with whom he communicates. Yes, maybe this is wrong on some level, but as you can see I suspected him for a reason. After the breakup I got terribly depressed, which caused me to gain weight. The only thing that calmed me down was meditation. I usually go to YouTube and play background music, for example
and then relax and calm myself in this way. I don't think many people would do that, but it doesn't matter.

More than music, it helps you to take a look at your inner conscience so that you discover for yourself that divine laws must be followed to avoid continuing in the cycle of suffering and pain.
