There are many reasons for depression. Being a member of TOPS, one reason for depression as it relates to that organization is the inability to lose weight at the same rate as others and comparing yourself with others. Another reason could be that the people involved are not getting the proper balance of nutrition that their bodies need and that can cause depressive feelings.
Everyone's nutritional needs are different and only a properly balanced nutritional program can meet those needs.
I do not know that much about TOPS, but I do know that a lot of programs out there do not keep balanced nutrition in mind when setting up diets.
I had a friend who was on a nationally recognized diet program almost die, because of the lack of proper nutrition. Lack of proper nutrition can cause lots of problems.
I hope I have helped you somewhat. If you have further qustions and/or comments, please feel free to contact me at any time.
Blessings in all that you do.
