S A L T S

S: Sad
A: Angry
L: Lonely
T: Tensed
S: Stressed

When you are craving salty food and eat big amount of it without necessariy being hungry, you must be sad, angry, lonely, tensed, or stressed!
That's what a nutritionist mentioned, relating the letters of the word "salts" to these moods.

So, today, I had two breakfasts at school, and when I arrived home I was full but I ate as if I was very hungry!
Of course at night my stomach was still full, but I wanted badly to eat, although I wasn't hungry. And I didn't want to eat anything sweet, I was craving salty food. I tried to resist but I couldn't! Obviously I'm feeling sad and stressed, now I'm feeling guilty and very full which, to make things worse, will make me have sleeping troubles tonight...

So, does your mood affect your eating habits? Does stress make you eat more, or cause you a loss of appetite?

Does my mood affect my eating habbit ?? are you kidding me!

I gained 10 KGs in the last 6 months, just because I wasn't feeling ok! simple depressions can affect my eating habits. and i quit gym in the last 6 months, im a little bit busy.

and ah, what you did today, eating without being hungry; this is how i gain weight! becarful !

Absolutely there is no doubt about it,eating habits are driven by your mood.Am not on a diet but I watch the "quantity" of food I eat.But for the past couple of month I stopped any type of exercise and am munching on junk food,eating without being hungry just from being nervous.Then you start dealing with the guilt to add to the main cause that led to this behavior..so now instead of dealing with one problem you end up with many.Some people loose their appetite under stress,but we all end with the same result:Bad health issues and the cause of depression is still there.I try to stay busy.
take it easy:)remember you are not alone.
