I just realized that I eat a lot whenever I feel angry or whatnot. Tonight, I ate about 3 big bowls of chicked w/ rice and leftover fried egg from breakfast after coming home from a class lab (lets just say that computers are beginning to irritate me).

To make matters worse, I still feel hungry! Is this a problem?

Yes. You're living to eat, not eating to live. You need to find less fattening ways to reduce your stress...go take a brisk walk around the block or something. Stress eating is the kind that can kill you.

Always easier said than done. We all have our weaknesses, some are over-addicted to exercise, others to food, others to various illegal substances, overspending, etc. Wish there was some way to trade genes, no? I'll trade my "need-to-always-have-every-minute-of-the-day-planned-and-packed-full-of-activities" for somebody's "laid-back-go-with-da-flow" gene...
:D

However, I agree with Miulang's advice. Now that you recognize your problem, you can find ways to avoid the temptation. My vice happens to be cheese. I absolutely can't refuse it. No matter how full I get, I find more room for the stuff. The plus for me? I'm not a big fan of sweet foods at least...

G/l to you and to everyone else fighing all those personal demons and those trying to stick to their "should do this" type resolutions/goals!

You're what, 18 or 20 years old? And male? Sounds to me like your eating habits are perfectly normal.

Then again, if you're eating as a stress reliever, that can be a bad habit to get into, because as you get older you won't be able to burn it off as easily. But you've probably got about 10 years before you have to worry about that.

Or maybe you have a tapeworm.

Eating always feels good. Otherwise most people wouldn't eat. 'Nuff said.

Sometimes I eat to make HER feel good. Does that count?

I like the scene in Nutty Professor when he's all depressed (about being fat), and scorfs a bowl of M&M's. Hilarious!

Chocolate silly. What were YOU thinkin'? :p I said EAT. Not LICK.

Medical research has found that Chocolate releases endorphin, a neurological chemical known to stimulate pleasure (feeling good).

That's what I meant! Or did I? :D
