How does losing weight improve mood, ease depression, and quell PMS symptoms?

Losing weight might help all of these problems, but not always.  Many overweight people are depressed often and even suffer from severe depression.  Depression can also increase the chances of overweight as it reduces the individual’s ability or desire to help their overweight situation or to prevent it in the first place.  Losing weight can increase energy, mood and overall health and wellbeing.  PMS can be helped by losing weight as the lost of fat tissue can have a favorable effect upon hormonal balance;  keeping in mind that overweight always adversely affects hormonal balance (fat tissues make hormones and as the are “added to the mix” of what the body produces can cause PMS).
