Does anxiety affect your eating habits?

      If I do not keep a regular routine around good foods coming in my body and start skipping meals or eating junk for too long my aniexty can go into overdrive and I will start down bad thought patterns and get all messy in other areas adding to more aniexty and stress.

      Yeah. I just commented on another of your posts. But yeah. I was living with a family abroad and I didn't have very defined expectations which resulted in my not usually eating food unless it was offered or I at outside of the house. That meant that I did have three meals a day on school days but during weekends and non school days I would basically just eat dinner. Slowly I became less hungry. And the last few weeks there was no school at all. It's been a bit of a struggle to make myself eat even when I don't think that I'm hungry now that I'm home. My mom's been super worried.

      I literally just wrote a post asking for eating tips when I'm anxious, I'm SO happy I'm not alone

      My anxiety tells me I shouldn’t eat & I restrict. But my mood is really low or euphoric and when I eat I crash and can’t get anything done.

        @izle when I was in high-school I was actually afraid I'd become anorexic because everything I ate made me want to gag so I tried eating stuff like yogurt and such that was light and wouldn't make me feel weighed down.

          @ladybug28 I’m sorry to hear that! I think eggs are also a good staple! I don’t have issues with eating like that but more that I feel guilty for eating because I internalize the idea that I’m not wanted, that people abandon me when they see me for who I am and I try to hurt myself for it.

      If my anxiety is bad enough I'll nibble on something or eat something light just so there's something in my stomach...I have to force anything down just to function those days.

      Yes, it affects mine. I get so anxious I can't eat at all. My mouth gets dry and the food is sticky.

      I cannot eat at all when anxious.

        @coffeeblack holy moly! I'm the same way...I feel so thrown off when I don't have good food around and plan my days around my eating schedule.

          @Alicia4475 Same! Literally, most of the time my schedule surrounds what I'm going to eat, time to prepare it, and when 😂😂 Glad to hear I'm not the only one 😁
