I have suffered with bouts of depression my entire life. I just assumed there was nothing I could do, short of drugs, other than to just deal with it.
I started questioning that line of thought earlier this year because my depression took a much worse turn. I knew I needed a change. Seeking professional help was an option, but I wanted to find a better way.
For the last 15 years, my eating habits have been poor. That is the main reason I hit 300 pounds. Also, my diet did not include all nutrients that I needed.
A few months ago, I started taking a common multi-vitamin and fish-oil capsules.
Within a few weeks, it was as if a fog had lifted. Not only was the depression not as bad, but It seems that I can think more clearly.
Deciding to lose weight was the natural next thing to do, once I was in the better state of mind. It really wasn’t much of a conscious decision. It just seemed to be what I should be doing. I wish I had done something about the depression years ago.
