No: While it is true that some foods have a lot of anxiety-causing products, like caffeine, if you suffer from an anxiety disorder, it is not from food. In reality, very few people suffer from hypoglycemia, or low blood sugar. If you do, then frequent snacks can help. But you have to keep a close eye on your blood sugar because low blood sugar can be a warning that you will get diabetes later.
