    "[M]en with abdominal obesity have symptoms of depression and anxiety," concludes a recent study from Sweden.

    Men with a waist-to-hip ratio of greater than 1—that is their waist was bigger than their hips—were found to have more depression and more anxiety than men with a waist-to-hip ratio of less than 1.

    The study involved 59 middle-aged men, of which roughly half had a waist-to-hip ratio of greater than 1, and half less than 1.
