Some people do: Eat to comfort themselves when grieving. Others eat but it isn't healthy food. Both of these can be possible reasons for weight gain. See you have bipolar disorder with behavior therapy. Consider talking with friends, relatives, clergy or your therapist about your grieving. Take care.
