    Hanger is the grumpiness you feel when you are hungry. We've all been there, but what's the science behind it?

Another explanation might be that Anger is a response, in a general sense, to not having your needs met, so being angry when you're hungry isn't that far away

someone should make a snickers commercial where explorers are trying to cross a Piranha infested river, and the Piranhas are in a frenzy, so one of the explorers drops a snickers in the water, which immediately pacifies the starving Piranhas. Snickers. You're not you when you're hungry

Then why do I someone with a very addictive personality, who eats sometimes worse but generally just better than P.O.W. in Germany during WWII, have a at least normal amount self control? And no I am not exaggerating I don't know why I do this.

Hank, unfortunately I have been ordered to attend anger management classes, I'm almost done and actually I'm glad I had to go. I had to show my counselor this video.He's a pretty good guy. When I told him about it he was extremely interested.Thanks for a great job!

Well I experience this in a more extreme way, if I eat carbs especially if they are liquid a few hours later I get light headed I start trembling and sweating , my blood sugar it is so low that my adrenal glands have to kick in to save me and use the stored glucose in the liver so my brain can be fed with enough glucose so I don't die?maybe .....IT IS QUITE FUN EXPERIENCE

Not sure if there are studies on it but I've also seen/experienced a kind of extra aggression surrounding hunger that springs from insecurity about actually getting food at all...it's apparently a thing. If you seriously went hungry as a kid, it's a very real thing. (I'm not talking about "go to bed without dinner" here, which should be obvious; I'm talking "I have had one hot dog in the last two days" levels of going without, which sadly a LOT of kids suffer through at least once - and a whole lot of adults suffer through even as I'm typing this.) And I would very much agree that the "lizard brain" strongly affects the reaction. Fortunately if you know you might get like this, you can at least try to curb the reaction and get that snack before dinner!

If it is a factor in regulating aggression it makes me wonder if it is different between wild animals and domesticated animals. Assuming that humans are not alone in experiencing "hanger"

You get Hangry because you are an impatient, weak minded, immoral, pretentious, easily suggestible, incompetent, easily, triggered, cowardly, virtue signalling and perverted Hasshole and basically just a mean/selfish/cruel bastard at heart. And there is no cure. There are plenty of poised, gracious, young women to attack at the Chic fil et drive thru when the urge strikes you. Help yourself.

Hangry is your bodies withdrawal symptoms from the addictive junk food that dominates the market. You are starving for nutrition.

Well imagine being starved for days, and then someone brings out a plate of food for you. I’m sure most people would look like animals when they start eating because all they are thinking is, “I want/ need food, nothing else matters”
