Ans- Both statement are correct.

This article published in the current issue of Journal of Clinical Psychiatry: "Obesity Comorbidity in Unipolar Major Depressive Disorder: Refining the Core Phenotype".

Results:
- Subjects with atypical depression had markedly elevated obesity rates compared to population controls and to other depressed subjects, with corresponding pairwise odds ratios consistently greater than 2.0 (P < .001).
- In contrast, obesity rates were not significantly different in subjects with classic depression and nondepressed controls. These results were manifest in individuals with either current or past depression and were independent of gender and age.

Conclusions:
- While many individuals with classic depression will present with obesity due to the high prevalence of both disorders, only atypical depression is associated with an elevated risk of obesity relative to the population at large.
