When I'm Depressed

I don't eat. - Women like sugar, men like meat: "Just what triggers people to turn to 'comfort foods' — and which foods they pick — often depends on whether you're asking a man or a woman, according to a new study by Cornell University researchers.

It turns out women are slightly more likely to eat comfort foods high in fat and sugar like cakes and ice cream — along with a hefty serving of guilt, loneliness and depression.

Men, on the other hand, are more likely to turn to soups, pasta and steaks as a reward when they're feeling upbeat.

That's significant because those who associated comfort foods with positive emotions were more likely to pick healthier fare, according to the study recently published in the medical journal Physiology & Behavior. The study was conducted with researchers from McGill University in Canada and was drawn from a Web-based survey of 277 participants."
I eat like a guy. I love a good steak and seafood when I want to celebrate and I don't really like cakes, cookies or candy. I am so weird.

Thanks goodness.
