HANGRY... more commonly known as when one is so hungry they become ANGRY 😡😡

“Hanger” is primarily induced when our body's experience a certain level of discomfort. For example intake an extremely low amount of carbohydrates can really mess up your mental focus.... but why does it happen.... 👇👇👇👇

As time passes after your last meal, the amount of nutrients circulating (carbohydrates and fats being our bodies primary source of energy) in your bloodstream starts to drop. If your blood-glucose levels fall far enough, your brain will perceive it as a life-threatening situation. You see, unlike most other organs and tissues in your body which can use a variety of nutrients to keep functioning, your brain is critically dependent on glucose to do its job.

Fight 👊 or flight ✈️ adrenaline is one of the major hormones released into your bloodstream with the “fight or flight” response to a sudden scare, such as when you see, hear or even think something that threatens your safety.

▶️OPTIMIZATION ACTION: Your meal plans are all at a healthy-macro balance. If you stick to the plan and don’t try to “starve” yourself for unnecessary chunks of time throughout the day you should not be reaching this point. However, we understand life happens and you might not have a meal with you, or might have relied on your husband to take out the meat to thaw, or might need to cook something. What do you do in that moment? Stuff as much food from the refrigerator in until your food is done cooking!? Stop at McDonalds and get a “salad” with more calories than a BIG MAC!?


▶️You have options.

▶️First, you have to #masterthementals of talking yourself out of this mindset. YOU ARE NOT STARVING. I promise. Repeat this to yourself until you get CONTROL over this emotion and get a healthy meal in.

▶️Second, what to physically do.

▶️Virtually if you find yourself forced to eat out you can stay on plan. At this point you know what your lean protein options, veggie, and clean carb sources are. Simply be specific about how you want your food cooked (No added butter/oil, dressing, cheese, etc.) and when you receive the plate immediately have your server take away the extra carbs that don’t fit your portion size.

▶️If you’re home, start cooking the food but make yourself chug 20oz. of water to tie yourself over, make a hot tea, hot coffee, eat a handful of salted celery sticks or a half a salted/tajin/lemon cucumber in the meantime.

Let’s keep evolving 💪
