I think that is normal. I struggle with depression at times too. I go from eating too much to not eating enough. The bottom line is that I am just not paying attention to my body and taking care of it. I have lost interest in that. I give up. It is not a great place to be in when I am there. (In fact, I am there a bit now. I have started to tell myself that self-care does not matter. And this is not a place I want to be.) I think that when I am depressed that is when I will use anything to beat myself up. So eating poorly gives me more ammunition for self-flagellation. So I try to nip that in the bud, if I can. The most important thing is to be gentle with ourselves when this is happening. Best of luck to you.
