Does stress make us crave junk food?

Brian Wansink, Cornell professor and author of the book Mindless Eating, was quoted in a article.  He said:

"We're doing a really cool study where we're looking at the sales of healthy and unhealthy foods across Cornell University based on exam time versus non-exam time, and the effect is less than you think. The junk food definitely goes up during exams, but what we find, surprisingly, is that in the weeks after exams there's a reversion that ends up almost wiping out the effects."
