Bottom Line: A randomized clinical trial examined the effects of two nutritional strategies (multinutrient supplementation and food-related behavioral activation therapy) and their combination on preventing new episodes of major depressive disorder in overweight and obese adults over one year. About 1,000 overweight and obese adults with elevated depressive symptoms from four European countries were included.
