Anxious people only have time to worry and are usually in their anxious zone, and the body doesnt want food, in fact when im  going through anxiety spells I think food is the last thing I think about! So yes, your body doesnt want food when ur anxious..atleast mine did not! in fact i hated food, i get weak and zoned [email protected]

We don't gain because we eat more, we just gain.  No relation to diet at all.  Probably slows the metabolism of those of us who gain.

I have! I was just diagnosed with severe GAD and Panic Disorder, and had my first panic attack on June 19, 2009. Well, since then I have lost a lot of weight. But it didn't happen all of a sudden, its because I cant seem to eat. I really want to eat and really try to eat but I cant. Some days I can, but other days its like food seems gross and I just cant sallow anything. I don't know if that's the case for you, or if you just lost weight all of a sudden. Well , hope this helped :)
