Jolly fat: relation between obesity and psychoneurosis in general population.

Abstract

The relation between fatness and aspects of psychological status was investigated in a representative sample (339 men and 400 women) of a middle-aged suburban population. A significant positive relation was found between substantial obesity and low levels of anxiety (in men and women) and depression (in men).
