Wednesday, 5 May · 1 min read

If you start feeling angry when you’re hungry, you'll know how it feels to be ‘hangry’. Here’s how to stop hanger in its tracks.

Food, or a lack of it, can have a big impact on how we feel. When you get very hungry, your blood sugar can take a dive, which can make you feel grumpy.

Listening to your body’s hunger signals is a good way to make sure you’re eating regularly enough.

To avoid getting hangry, fill up on:

  • protein-rich foods like eggs, fish and nuts, which keep you fuller for longer
  • wholegrain foods like lentils and oats, which release energy gradually over time – helping blood sugar levels stay balanced
  • fruits and vegetables, which are packed full of nutrients and can leave you feeling energised
