How moods can influence food cravings

“Researchers have found out that our moods can dictate what we eat,” says JR, a medical doctor and recovering food addict. According to research, here is a list of food cravings and the moods they address:

If you reach or crave for:
Meat, hard and crunchy foods    –>   Angry
Sugars –> Depressed
Soft, sweet foods like ice cream  –> Anxious
Salty foods –> Stressed
Bulky, filling foods (crackers, pasta) –> Lonely, Sexually frustrated
Anything and everything –> Jealous

I am not so sure how much influence moods have, but perhaps there is a certain amount of “truth” to it. I have heard people say that desserts are happy food… maybe the reason is that they are a little depressed, and some sugar seems to help! =D
