Changes in Appetite
Appetite and/or weight changes
Depression affects the appetite in one way or another. Often, you just lose interest in eating because the food has no taste. When anxiety is high, you may not be able to eat. In some cases, however, people will overeat out of frustration or misery.
“I was down to 150 pounds. I wasn’t eating at all. I just had no desire to eat.”
—Patrick McCathern, First Sergeant, U.S. Air Force, Retired
