Psychological factors can play an important role in the development of obesity. Depression is one of the conditions that can either cause pronounced weight gain in some patients or weight loss on others. I think your sister should consult both a clinical psychologist and a clinical dietitian. Ask Cyber Shrink about the psychological aspects of this case. Check the List of Dietitians on this Website or phone 082-593-0276 or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or look in your local telephone directory or Yellow Pages, to find a dietitian. It is essential for your sister to first regain her psychological and physical health (the latter by using the proper diet and exercising) BEFORE she falls pregnant. She needs to take her unborn child's health and future welfare into account, not just her own present condition.
