According to the University College London, results have proven that losing weight makes a person physically fit; however, it does not equally guarantee positive mental health in the people.
Dr. Sarah Jackson – Lead Author of University of London said; “We do not want to discourage anyone from trying to lose weight, which has tremendous physical benefits, but people should not expect weight loss to instantly improve all aspects of life.”
Although, the researchers and doctors have discussed little on relation between weight loss and mental health, they fail to prove accurate results and more data on this study.
It is a contradiction to comment on whether Physical Fitness has limited connection with mental mood, as people who lose weight are happier to see the changes in them. Physically fit people are more confident rather than those who are obese.
On the other hand, researchers studied that at times, the weight loss is due to acute depression and there is no change in the mood and mental health of those people. Dr. Jackson has recommended that health care professionals should track the mental and physical health of such patients, to whom they recommend weight loss and advice regular counselling (if needed).
