Do you feel more or less hungry when you're sad?

I know some people eat like crazy when they're in a sad mood, eating feelings or whatever.
Whenever I'm sad though, I don't eat at all, just my tears basically 😛 I don't know, my organism just doesn't need food at all at those times. That's the last thing I wanna do. Awesome diet ey? xD

How about you peeps?

  • I usually don't eat when I'm sad, angry, stressed out etc.. I can go without food for at least a day and half. I don't know, I just can't seem to eat when I'm extremely down - which happened a lot these few days.

    All I do during this time is put in my earphones and blast the music loudly. If I'm sad, chances are I'd cry myself to sleep. I'm like a walking zombie :/

  • While I may make a joke about it every once in awhile, to be honest I usually don't eat when I'm sad.
    When I am super sad, my mood gets pretty depressing and I just kinda want to go into a dark corner of my room alone so I can just sit there and feel sad. I don't know how to describe it. I usually end up getting pretty emotionally exhausted, look like crap, and don't want anyone to see me. Some days are worse than others.

    When I am just sad in general, I usually just get real quiet. I'll just go through the motions of the day and such.

    The irony is that when I feel sad it is usually brought on by feelings of isolation, and yet all I want to do when I'm sad is be alone. I don't even understand it myself :/

  • I personally want junk food when I am sad. I just feel like I don't give a shit if it is not healthy and just feel like I want to treat myself to something I like.

    • The brains ability (or lack thereof) to prioritize is interesting to say the least.

  • I don't notice really because I'm rarely sad. But even if I decided to douse myself with food, my metabolism would take care of it anyway.

  • Depends why I'm sad...
    If it's something stressful then I don't have an appetite. if it's something just depressing then I might be hungrier than usual.

  • I feel less hungry I think. I don't even have an appetite. My mind is too consumed with what is making me sad that I don't have time to even think about eating something.

  • I've never understood the eating while upset thing. When I'm pissed or sad I don't have an appetite at all. If I tried to force myself to eat anything I would throw up. I just can't eat when I'm upset lol.
