Abstract: 

Objectives: Obesity and overweight are the most important hygienic problems of human beings now. While, during the weight reduction process, mood changes could appear and usually severity of these changes is related to the duration and amount of weight loss. The main aim of this research is to evaluate mood changes during a weight loss program (calorie restriction), in over weight and obese volunteers.
Method: 57 clients referring for weight reduction treatment (aged 18-50 yrs) were selected through simple randomized sampling method. Data were gathered using MCMI-3 questionnaire (depression scale) and Profile of Mood States (POMS(.
Results: There was no significant difference between pretest (beginning of weight reduction) depression scores in MCMI-3 questionnaire (depression scale) and POMS and post test 1 (Three mounths after weight reduction). However, in comparison of post test 1 and post test 2 (six mounths after weight reduction), significant difference in depression scores in MCMI-3 (P<0.01) and Depression-Dejection, Anger- Hostility, Vigor- Activity (P<0.05) and also Fatigue-Inertia (P<0.01) in POMS subscales was seen. But other scales of POMS were not significant. But there was a significant difference only in Fatique – Inertia (P<0.01), Vigor-Activty and TMD score (P<0.05) in comparison of pretest and posttest 2. Finally, there was not a significant correlation among BMI of subjects in three stages of testing and depression scores in MCMI-3 and different scales of POMS. Conclusion: The method by which mood is measured is indicator of the nature of observed mood changes. Mood and affective response to weight reduction depends on method and duration of assessment.
