Hanger: when hunger meets anger. You aren’t just imagining that you get meaner as your time between meals gets longer; being hangry is normal (and justifiable) behavior. The culprit: low blood sugar.
Because your hunger-induced aggression is the result of low blood sugar, it’s obvious that, to get back to your cheery self, you need to raise your glucose levels. To snack your way back to reality in a healthy fashion, you should eat a combination of produce and protein. These foods are fiber rich and allow you to stay full between meals.
