Facing Forward

Hangry

I’ve recognized the fact that oftentimes when I am short with people or incredibly inpatient I am actually just really hungry.  Hunger puts me in a bad mood all the time.

The thing I’ve never been able to deal with very well whenever I try to switch my eating habits is hunger.  No one told me that I would be so hungry.  Even with snacks and eating small meals several times a day I still get very hungry.  And now that many of my favorite things are not an option I have to go hungry for a while until I can find something  I should eat.  So now I have to deal with my hanger.  Maybe I’m naive but I didn’t realize giving up my favorite foods would require so much mental and emotional work.  It’s like being in that Snickers commercial except I can only eat fruit.
