      When you have problems in your life and stressful situations do you pig out and raid your fridge or does your hunger vanish and starve yourself?

      I pig out like crazy, will eat anything I can find even if I am not hungry or craving anything. My mom on the other hand starves herself whenever she is worried, can remember her doing it when I was a child and now she suffers from anemia.

      I am the sort of person that when I have things bothering me I will and can eat and eat and eat even if I am not hungry, it's what I have always called comfort eating, not really good for you I know but I always feel it makes me feel a bit better just by doing that.

      When I'm angry, I tend to starve and fast.

      I starve, I sometimes have to watch myself of I won't eat for a day or a couple days. When I'm really stressed I'm just not hungry or not feeling up to eating.

      Sometimes when i get too angry, i would eat a lot and eat so fast like i am in an eating competition. When i am stressed, i eat my favorite foods like chocolates and ice cream.

      Oh most of the time that I am upset, I would rather not eat and starve myself. I feel that the food only blocks my throat and I can't fully digest it when it reaches my stomach. And I would just have stomach aches when I eat. So it's better for me not to eat when I am mad.

      I tend to eat and eat until the stress goes away. Anything sweet makes me feel better no matter what the situation is.

      I do both. If I gain too much weight I will starve myself through detox or liquid diets. They work to get back on track but they suck to high heavens. When I am bored I pig out.

      When I have problems, I try not to have it affect my eating, though I normally try and solve the problem and starve in the process.
