Treating depression is good for women to help them not only to recall the mental balance but also for losing weight. A support is a recent study published in the November / December journal of popular science General Hospital Psychiatry.
Researchers Group Health Research Institute Seattle, led by Simon Gregory, Mentioning in their report a number of other studies that explain how a previously Body Mass Index 30 or more, or in range obesity. Increases the risk of suffering depression is from 50 percent to even touch the 150 per cent.
The relationship between physical activity and depression is bidirectional, says Gregory. Increased physical activity leads to an improvement in depression and improvement of depression leads to increased physical activity. The two things go together.
Gregory and his colleagues examined a sample of 203 women aged between 40 and 65 years with an average BMI of 38.3. The participants were tested to check its basic weight, the level of depression, L physical activity and diet.
The women were divided into two groups with different treatments, one focusing on weight loss and the other is focused on weight loss that the care of depression. Among women who had supervised the depressive syndrome, 38 percent had lost at least 5 percent of body weight. This compared to 21 percent of women who, while managing to lose weight and losing the same pounds, had not handled the depression.
“Most of the programs of weight loss is not paying enough attention to screening and treatment of depression,” said the psychiatrist-Roshanaei Babak Moghaddam, University of Washington. “This study further underscores the importance of screening for depression in combined programs that may lead to the achievement of both the physical and the psychological well-being.”
