When I'm under stress, I eat less, which is a normal reaction to short-term stress, I believe.

Females, however, in general, always see a rise in the "want"/"need" to eat chocolate, crisps, biscuits and such when they are premenstrual (every 21 days, pretty much) so for them they have to know exactly when their body is approaching that point in order to say NO which isn't the easiest thing to do when the body's chemical hormonal balance is crying out for a fix.

Know your triggers and find another option to replace them. Eating doesn't lessen stress, exercise does.
