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."

Feeling depressed and/or lonely, maybe? I lost 25lbs after my last serious relationship. But I had gained 40lbs while in nursing school and throughout our relationship. But I chose to focus on myself rather than dwell on the two years of my life that were completely wasted--after I picked up the broken pieces of my heart, of course. Being emotional leads to irrational thinking. Food is a huge comfort and it makes us happy. But choosing not to watch how much you eat even though you're sad will lead to lots of weight gain. Been there and done 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
