Research: Weight variability increases with psychologic status

Worsening psychologic status leads to weight cycling.

Several studies have suggested an association between weight cycling and psychological status.  It makes sense that anxiety and depression will lead to an increase in eating and less exercise.  Although I think that weight cycles an lead to psychological distress, anxiety and depression (as well as other behavioral illnesses) could lead to weight cycling.  It is highly likely that both have a positive effect and magnify the effects of each other.
