Whether due to stress, lack of physical activities or concerns of daily life, anxiety is a common enemy and manifests itself in many ways, one of them is the constant need to eat. So how do you calm anxiety?

Feeling the need to eat food constantly is not only a sign of nervousness, but it tests your will power and self-control. Here are 5 tips that reduce food cravings:
