I don't know about depression, but cutting out dairy and eggs helped me to almost effortlessly lose 20lbs. I drink mostly soy milk because it is one of the healthiest (and tastiest, in my opinion) non-dairy milks, but occasionally I'll have rice, hemp, or oat milk.
Seriously, for people who still believe dairy is health food, read The China Study and Becoming Vegan. The high animal protein content of dairy causes it to actually leach calcium out of your bones!
If neurotic is wanting two mutually exclusive things at one and the same time, then I'm neurotic as hell. I'll be flying back and forth between one mutually exclusive thing and another for the rest of my days.
