BEST?: Anxiety, which you seem to implicate in your life, works in a myriad of ways: it can make you stop eating, it can make you over eat and with the wrong foods. I think lots of fluid intake, smaller more frequent healthier meals throughout the day. Keep comfort carbo loaded food packed away and not on hand. Look for ways for treatment of anxiety with a mental health professional. Good luck!
