What makes people gain weight after a breakup? My last girlfriend broke up with me and told me to move on and has gained a ton of weight since. It surprised me. I thought she would do the opposite because she wanted to "find a better guy."

I dont think she is depressed, just enjoying her freedom and drinking and partying. The lifestyle takes its tolls.
Depressed people dont eat. People who have obsessions and need to switch it to something else eat. Depressed people cannot stomach food and yes there is something about comfort eating but this isn't a case of that.0

People often try to fill a void by many means, she chose food, she basically is eating her emotions. Some people drink, some smoke some do drugs some shop some have empty sex, it's how they choose to fill the void of loss. I do admit there are healthier ways of doing things, however we as humans tend to go with what's easiest.0
