Stress eater?  I keep hearing people say that when they are stressed out or depressed, they eat more or "eat their feelings".  I am the total opposite.  If I am under any stress whatsoever, i have zero appetite.  Same with being depressed, if I am sad, I cant eat.  I've been under alot of money related stress lately and my mom asked me to lunch today.  I didnt want to go but I felt bad because we never get to go so I went.  It was all I could do to choke down half a salad :(

I'm just like you. If I'm super worried or stressed, I already have knots in my belly. No way can I eat when I feel that way.

When I'm stressed I will sit down with a pound of butter noodles, drown them in parmesan, and go to town. I'm pretty thin, my doctor didn't believe me when I told him, I had to have my dh vouch for me.

I tend to starve myself when I'm stressed or upset. Not on purpose, I just lose all desire to eat.
