After many years of being overweight or obese on meds for bipolar disorder, I started running and changed my diet for my mental health, not to lose weight. Ended up losing 30 pounds (and still going), going into full remission with the bipolar on fewer meds than ever before, and am now training for a half marathon and seeking employment after years of being on disability due to severe bipolar. Not saying it was the whole answer, but diet and exercise changes can do more than we can imagine...
