I think William has a good point, and exercise probably does factor into mood, but following this line of reasoning would mean no one who is physically fit suffers from depression and that everyone who suffers from depression has a deficient diet or poor exercise habits. But what about people who obsess about health and have no social life or other rewarding experiences? What about people who are jolly and full of life yet who are also weak, overweight, and perhaps even drink and smoke?

I think exercise can only help one's overall regemen towards physical and mental health, but mental health is not simply a function of one's physical health, or we would have figured it all out a long time ago. My diet includes, along with food, a Zoloft pill, and I have no problem with that.

By the way, all due respect to your intentions. I don't want you to feel like you've just been slammed by everyone.
