A researcher has confirmed what we’ve known all along – being hangry is a real thing.
When you’re hungry, you can get angry. You know … hangry.
The main reason this happens is because blood glucose levels drop when you’re hungry. This makes it tough to concentrate – and then more likely to snap at those around you.
Low blood sugar also triggers the release of stress hormones like cortisol and adrenaline, which make you behave more aggressively toward those around you.
So do your best to be a good citizen of the world and keep things under control by having a candy bar nearby. At the very least, don’t make any big decisions on an empty stomach. (Refinery29)
