When some people are under stress they may lose their appetite completely, or they may not eat proper meals and just pick here and there. It isn't enough to sustain their body and they lose weight. If a person is inclined to be thin, they could be eating but between their thyroid and adrenal glands working overtime from the stress they may lose weight even though they eat like a mac truck driver.

Yes, because stress can cause some people to lose their appetite. On the other hand, stress can cause other people to eat more and gain weight.

Weight Loss. Some people suffer a loss of appetite and loose weight. In rare cases, stress may trigger hyperactivity of the thyroid gland, stimulating appetite but causing the body to burn up calories at a faster than normal rate.

Marijuana does not directly affect weight loss or gain. It is known to stimulate the appetite of people who use it regularly. People who eat more because of this may gain weight. People who stop using marijuana and stop eating as much due to a reduced appetite may lose weight.

it is an appetite suppresant and it does not make you lose weight. It helps with suppressing the appetite while you are on a weight loss plan.

It doesn't. Stress usually makes people weigh MORE because stressed people will eat more to assure their stress.

Well people can do, partly because people sometimes eat more when stress thus causing weight to be put on. As well as this with stress peoples digestive systems can work slightly differently to how they would normally which occasionally means weight is put on, however, this normally causes weight loss. So stress can cause weight gain, usually through more being ate than normal.

No.Two effects of marijuana, depending on the person are:Increased appetiteLoss of appetiteSome people will experience the "munchies" and will, as a result, eat more food than they actually need, causing weight gain, not loss.Other people lose their appetite entirely as the brain focuses on trying to clear the effects of the marijuana out of your system, because, even though it feels good to the smoker, the brain hates it and is being damaged every second the drug remains in the bloodstream.So, scientifically, no, marijuana does not make you lose weight. But in some people it makes them lose their appetite.Losing your appetite can be done without marijuana, such as brushing your teeth with very strong toothpaste.

Stress affect everyone differently, some people get depressed and stop eating, others eat when they get depressed and thus gain weight. Stress does have an impact on our serotonin levels and that is one of the brain chemicals that can trigger depression.
