Are your feelings of hunger -- and those hangry moments -- actually most related to our emotions?
The Doctors welcome Dr. Susan Albers, author of “Hanger Management: Master Your Hunger and Improve Your Mood, Mind, and Relationships,” who discusses the 4 different types of hunger and what we can do to avoid it getting hangry.
She explains the 4 types of hunger include:
Health hunger - when the blood sugar drops and the body sends the body physical signals that food is needed
Head hunger - this happens when you think about food, like chocolate, and then if you cannot have it you become frustrated and feel deprived
Heart hunger - she says this type of hunger comes from emotions, stress, anxiety and feeling bored
Hand hunger - this occurs when food is in reach or sight, or you can smell it and it creates a sensory response
In order to keep from feeling hangry, Dr. Albers says to try and avoid sugary foods (which only help for a short window of time) and instead eat foods that are rich in magnesium, which affects someone's metabolism, mood, and insulin sensitivity. Some magnesium-rich foods she recommends:
- Pumpkin seeds
- Almonds and almond butter
- Brussels sprout
And if you are feeling hangry and want something sweet, Dr. Albers says small amounts of dark chocolate can be used to regulate mood.
