Many recent studies have highlighted the relationship between obesity and mood disorders. These studies suggest that the two are strongly linked, at least in some ways. However, this particular finding emphasizes the need for further research to test for full-fledged links between obesity and mood disorders. For now, we do know that depression is a common symptom of obesity. And so, the question becomes: “What types of weight loss treatment in Dubai can a person with depression use?”
- Many experts believe that the most effective way to treat obesity is to adopt a weight-loss diet that is low in fat and calories. These diets are typically very low-calorie and fat-free. The idea behind low calorie and fat-free diets is that, by eating less fat and fewer calories overall, a person’s calorie intake will be lower than the calories burned, resulting in higher calorie burning during exercise. The problem is that eating fewer calories overall does not mean that a person must eat less food per meal or snack. Instead, it appears that eating less food overall may be necessary to lose weight.
- One way that many people have used to lose weight is a special combination of aerobic exercise and a special type of nutritional supplement called “HCG diet,” or Human Chorionic Granulocyte Glycan. The purpose of this special HCAG diet offered by dieticians in Dubai is to replenish a person’s lost electrolytes, which can be restored with regular exercise. But, most experts agree that more research is needed to determine whether or not the use of the HCAG diet alone is an effective weight loss strategy.
- In addition to weight loss programs and medications, there are some lifestyle changes that some people try as well. For example, while low-carb diets such as Atkins are popular and have their share of followers, there is another option: vegetarian diets. On these types of diet, a person generally follows a vegetarian meal pattern for several days until the desired weight is reached. There is some evidence that these types of low-carb diets have some drawbacks. A recent study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that participants on a low-carb diet were more likely to be overweight or obese at the end of the study’s four-year term.
- This study followed two groups of women. One group ate a Mediterranean-style diet; the other ate a low-fat, low-calorie, ultra-low-glycemic diet. The group that adhered to the Mediterranean-style diet had a significantly lower total cholesterol level and had less heart disease and other cardio illnesses.
