The science of hangry
Waiting too long between meals without eating a high-quality snack causes blood sugar levels to dip, leaving you feeling tired, cranky and hungry—AKA hangry.
Another entrance to hangry-ville? When you’re dieting—and restrictive with food choices—and your office mate orders the most delicious-looking burger and fries.
Anger, irritability, headache, death stares.
Eat food. Immediately.
Stay one step ahead of “the hangry”
Don’t wait until you’re starving to eat. Avoid the emotional roller coaster (and keep your friends and job!) by stashing a few good-for-you snacks in your bag or desk drawer… and dig in when you first start to feel hungry.
