Overeating Due to Stress?

Stress can make some people (me included) lose our appetite. And other folks find comfort in food. But such behaviors may actually even out in the long term, . Because researchers find that people who change eating patterns when stressed out may actually make up for those not-so-healthy impulses during easier times. So finds in a study in the journal Psychological Science.

Volunteers for the study self-identified as either “ munchers” or “ skippers” . Each person will have had to interact with another person via video chat. , with the intention of meeting them later. After each video interaction participants receive received a message either stating that their partner had decided not to meet them, or that they were excited to meet them. As a control, some participants were told that the study had just been canceled. Then , the researchers offered ice cream to everyone , - as much as they wanted.

The munchers who got rejected ate more ice cream than did those in the control groups. group, and the skippers who were rejected ate less. All as you’d expectedexpect.

But here is here’s the twist, : Among the participants who received positive feed backfeedback, the munchers actually ate less than the control group, . And the skippers ate more.

So even stress-eaters are sometimes less-eaters. Unless they are they’re always stressed out.
