Fasting: Is it Worth Being Hangry?

Fasting: Is it Worth Being Hangry?

Many of us have tried fasting in one form or another. Some of us do it for dietary goals, others for religious beliefs, and still others because they’re simply too busy to eat. We might have different reasons for why we fast, but there’s something about not eating that we probably all agree on: hunger makes us cranky. In case you missed it, there’s a term for being hungry AND moody.  

Hangry (adj.) - When you are so hungry that your lack of food causes you to become angry, frustrated or both. Used in a sentence: Girl, I haven’t eaten since 9. I’m so hangry. Don’t talk to me. 

We’ve probably had first hand experience with this stomach growling, mouth watering, midlife crisis resembling mood. I for one carry around a life saving “snack-pack” just in case my girlfriend gets hangry. “Here love…eat a snickers. You’re not you when you’re hungry.”
