According to some monkeys (and ABC news), it's perfectly natural to want to eat more when you're stressed out. The news story is here:
I think that's good to know, so I don't think I'm nuts or weak-willed for having that impulse. I also think it's good to remember that I am not a monkey, and so can recognize the impulse and realize that it's not in my best interests to act on it.
(I also want to note that I just used the phrase, "I am not a monkey," in all seriousness. That just makes me smile.)
So, my fellow non-monkeys, what do you think of this story?
