Do You Get Hangry?
Listen, we’ve all been there, and it typically occurs when we are least expecting it. You skipped breakfast running out the door, figured you could grab something on the way, but traffic was already a mess, you get to work and your 9am meeting starts, you’re in there for two hours… and still haven’t eaten since dinner the night before! Drum roll please - HANGER.
What Does Hangry Feel Like?
While it can be different for everyone the most common symptom of hanger is irritability, short-temper, agitation or physical symptoms like edginess, jumpiness or inability to take a chill pill.
Why Do We Get Hangry?
Every single thing we consume is transformed into glucose, whether it’s a lean piece of meat or a sugar loaded granola bar - the levels of glucose we receive vary depending on the food. If you haven’t eaten in a while your glucose levels begin to decline and your body goes straight into panic mode. This sends our cortisol and adrenaline through the roof making for an uneasy body and mood.
What’s The Best Food to Eat for Hanger?
In this situation your body is craving anything salty or sugary to fix the problem it’s having right now. However, that doesn’t solve the major dip you’ll experience shortly after that quick fix. Eating a meal or snack that is balanced between protein, fat and carbohydrates will set you up for ultimate success, so you won’t crash later.
If you still can't get meals down or don't have time, try carrying balanced snacks to hold you over until your next meal. Your body & friends will thank you!
