Our expert says:
I am not a herbalist, so cannot recommend herbal antidepressants. But I think you may well suffer from depression and one way to counter depression is to do regular aerobic exercise (like brisk walking or skipping), which produces chemicals called endorphins that 'lift' the mood. The exercise will also help for weightloss. Also make sure that you eat a diet that contains some low-glycaemic index (GI) carbohydrates and drink milk because these foods increase the serotonin levels in the brain and improve the mood. Keep in mind that even over-the-counter antidepressants will cost money and may not be beneficial. So exercise and eat carbs without adding fats and let's see if your can improve your mood and lose some weight.
