Depression and Overeating
I'm suffering with depression. I don't like anyone, I don't like to talk with anyone and I eat a lot. Because of that, I have put on weight, 118 kg (259.6 lbs). I'm into a very bad state. I want to reduce my weight and look good but eating habits are very bad. I go to the gym one day and other, I don't. Please help.

Depression is a serious issue that sometimes need the outside help of a professional. If you feel at any time that you cannot help yourself, I highly encourage that you seek the help of a qualified therapist.
Self-help methods for depression work well for some, while others may have a harder time pushing themselves to do the work necessary to get better.
With those who suffer depression, it is essential that you eat a more healthy diet, especially when you don't feel like it. Believe it or not, there are foods that can help improve brain function and support your nervous system. To learn more about these, visit The Stress Diet: Nutrition For Good Mental Health
