Hi, do you think having a panick attack makes you burn more calories, or just experiencing anxiety? I've lost about 5 pounds over the last week and i barely exercises or ate right, actually i've been a chocoholic and anything carbs.. and just been having alot of anxiety attacks yet things are fitting alot looser on me. Any thoughts? :thanks

anxiety definatly can make you lose weight. Its usually muscle that gets burned off.

On the other hand anxiety allows you to store fat easier. So its usually a give and take, muscle for fat.

I strength train, so i don't think i'm losing muscle because i don't feel 'gushy' i feel firm. No, i know it's not healthy, i was just curious, but i'm losing it the healthy way from now on. Anxiety i would think raises your metabolism because your heart beats faster. Thanks :)
