I am currently in the Navy, and for the first time in my life I have for some reason become completely depressed. I have no idea why, no tragic events, no bad experiences, nothing. It is one the worst feelings I have ever felt. I have talked to the Chaplain and have tried to get out and be social but as soon as I'm back alone, it hits again. My point is, as a result, I have gained 50 pounds in just five months. The motivation I once had to lose it, is gone. I have knocked myself completely out of body/fat standards for the Navy, and have ended up on the FEP (fitness enhancement program) aka: Mandatory PT. The workouts that onced worked so well for me, seems to do nothing. I have lost vitually nothing. I used to be able to lose it with no problem. So I finally gave in the pill craze and tried Chitisan. Can anyone give me some good info on that because it doesn't seem to be doing a whole lot. I am about to try the Xenodrine, but I had a fried who took it about a year ago and it gave him massive mood swings. GNC said that is a result of the Ephedrine. I was encouraged to try the new Xenodrine, w/o the Ephedrine but I want to get some info from those who have tried it. And perhaps someone has any info on the relationship between the depression and extreme quick overweightness. It seems all I want to do now is eat. Even when I'm not hungry, I feel like I have to eat. I have never felt this disgusting and helpless in my life.
