‘I am sorry for the things I said when I was hungry!’
Does this popular meme ever feel a bit relatable? Ever feel like you get a bit angry when you are hungry? The ol’ infamous hangry situation? Yeah, us too! What if we said you don’t have to worry about being hangry or hungry ever again? Well maybe not ever, but at least having the tools to stave off those hunger pains could keep you from biting off your significant other’s head because you were hungry.
3 Ways to Stave Off Hunger Pains
Sleep an Extra Hour
Staying in bed an extra hour can save you from consuming around 300 extra calories the next day. Just one extra hour of sleep each night can increase leptin. Leptin is the hormone that suppresses appetite. Making sure you get a good night’s sleep could make a difference from putting on extra pounds each month. Think about it, if you ate an extra 300 calories a day, that is 109,500 calories. There are 3,500 calories in a pound. Eating that many extra calories a day could pack on 31 pounds a year. Yikes.
Maybe You Are Thirsty
It is common for people to confuse hunger for actually being thirsty. Every time you feel the hunger strike, do a quick check to pay attention if the hunger sensation is a bit different and possibly just a sign that you are thirsty. Whenever you feel a hunger pain try drinking a large glass of water first, then wait to see if they go away.
