Lena Dunham has been an outspoken critic of President Trump from the get-go, and she recently revealed in an interview with Howard Stern that Trump’s win even caused her to lose weight.
“Donald Trump became president, and I stopped being able to eat food,” she told Stern. “Everyone’s been asking like, ‘What have you been doing?’ And I’m like, ‘Try soul-crushing pain and devastation and hopelessness and you, too, will lose weight.’”
Dunham’s definitely not alone. Stress can disrupt your eating habits in all sorts of ways—leading to everything from binges to a total loss of appetite.
Given the current state of affairs, it’s easy to get caught up with worry, but in times like these, it’s more important than ever to practice self-care. Go for a walk, treat yourself to something, and please, for your own good, take a break from social media.
