Stress: eat or not?

When you're stressed, do you tend to eat more or less?

I've had two months of SERIOUS stress on all levels:  physical, emotional, financial.  At first I had no appetite and had to force myself to eat, and now I have to catch myself from wanting to wolf down every bit of food in the house.  Yes, I know stress is bad and I'm doing everything I can to lower my stress level, but some things are just beyond my control, ya know?

I am yes. Have always said I am an "emotional eater". Something that I picked up doing as a teen and can't seem to get it under control. So yes I totally understand where you are coming from.

It depends honestly. I tend to not have the urge to eat, but I do also eat bad things at the same time. So binge eating mixed with not eating lol.
