Default EC stack, stress, and cortisol

I have noticed that when I take the EC stack (200 mg C + 25 mg E) one, two, or three times a day, I get this anxious and stressed out feeling that can only be quelled by eating. In other words, I eat not to quell hunger, but to quell the anxious feelings.Why would eating cure these feelings?

it should have nothing to do with cortisol.

Eating food alters your brain neurotransmitter profile, so it's much more likely related to the fact that ephedrine increases the rate at which dopamine gets converted into other neurotransmitters.

And eating food increases serotonin which is decreased by ephedrine?

It's not that simplistic. Just stop overthinking it it dodsn't matter and here are your two options

1. Stop taking EC (or try adding 200 mg theanine)
2. Take EC with food
