17 Things Only Stress Eaters Will Understand

I'm going to talk to some food about this.

Posted on

1. First of all, you have ONE motto in life and it is as follows:


2. Your freezer is fully stocked at all times.

At least five flavors of ice cream, always on hand.

3. Sometimes when you know a stressful event is coming up, you try to buy "healthier foods" to deter yourself.

But then you eat the entire jar of reduced fat peanut butter and it doesn't even matter.

4. When you have a stressful day ahead of you, you take your morning coffee with a side of CAKE.

Balanced breakfast, tbh.

5. And you can't ever be expected to eat politely when you're in a stressful state.


6. And midnight snack runs are basically the reason that you don't get enough sleep.

Don't you look at me like that, CASHIER.

7. When you're really feeling the pressure, you only have time for one type of fitness.


8. When you procrastinate, you procrastinate by baking.

Cookies, brownies, muffins...

9. You get upset because you'll complain to your friends that you're stress eating, and they'll tell you to just "stop eating."

And you're like, "CAN YOU QUIET DOWN? I'm looking for food."

10. You've tried to hide junk food from yourself before, but it never works.

Because your special talent is finding food if it's within 30 feet of you.

11. You have backup plans for when your usual food spots aren't open JUST IN CASE something stressful happens.

TACO BELL IS OPEN LATE, thank you Jesus.

12. Anyone who comes over to your house can tell when you're going through an emotional patch, because the only food you will have available to eat will be bread, wine, and cheese.


13. If someone brings food around you when you're stressed, it automatically becomes yours.

Thanks for the donuts!!

14. You consult food for all of life's woes. / Via NBC

And it ALWAYS offers support. <3

15. And you always carry snacks with you everywhere you go, JUST IN CASE.

You can never be too prepared.

16. You do your best work when food is involved.

Actually, you only do work when food is involved.

17. And look, some people may not understand your need to eat when you feel stressed, but clearly they have no clue about the healing powers of pizza.

But you understand, and that's all that really matters.
