    can anxiety / depression affect appetite?

    I've been feeling overly anxious and depressed as of late, and I noticed that when the feelings get worse my appetite drops significantly. I'm trying to eat 4,000 calories a day for 2-3lbs a month of weight gain. But the last few weeks once I hit 2,000 I feel like a i need to force feed myself. It's very uncomfortable and feels like I need to vomit sometimes (hasn't happened yet)

    I used to just eat 2 meals a day of nearly all solid foods and be fine, now I'm trying to split it up since two 2,000 calorie meals would wreck me, and I'm trying to just drink a 3-4 glasses of milk just to reach the calorie goal. This helps a little, but I feel like I shouldn't be this stuffed.

    It definitely can. What is causing your depression/anxiety in the first place?

    A number of things. Been dealing with depression for about 14 years so it's definitely clinical in some respects but there are also triggers that cause circumstancal depression as well. Anxiety began within the past year.

    2 significant things happened this year. One was that my dad died in February and I tried my first attempt at dating over the summer which crashed pretty hard around August. Been feeling like crap all year but it's gotten significantly worse this past month.

    Absolutely. See Mary Dallman's work on comfort food/stress. The key approach here should probably be creating a solution for anxiety/depression. CBT is very effective for anxiety, and exercise is one of the most effective antidepressants.
