Lately I’ve been noticing that when I wake up in the morning/go to long without eating I get pretty damn unpleasant. For obvious reasons I try to avoid this. I’m just curious if anyone else has the same problem. In fact lately I’ve been finding that when I get like this I start dwelling on the most minute petty little bullshit things and they get me all worked up…then I eat and am back to normal.

Any thoughts, could this be a blood sugar thing?

when I get hungry I go psycho like buschemi in fargo

I do my best to not get real hungry, otherwise that killer instict hits me, and makes me a real pain in the ass for everyone around me. I think it runs in my family.

Sounds like you could be a little hypoglycemic. Do you feel lightheaded and nauseauted upon waking? I’d keep a banana on the nightstand, and upon waking, eat it, and see how you feel. It might knock off the hunger pangs, and elevate blood glucose levels to the normal range. A couple of questions,

  1. When(time) do you consume your last meal of the day?
  2. What does that meal usually consist of?
  3. What time do you wake up?

Possibly, but if your only symptom is getting pissed off easily, you need to stop going so long without eating. I must have missed why that would even be an issue. I don’t wait to eat in the morning other than taking a shower and getting dressed. Why are you waiting? The bigger you get, the more of a problem that will be. On an average day, if I go longer than 3-4 hours without eating something, I will literally get weak and nauseated. Therefore, I don’t usually go that long without eating.

I generally don’t go more then 3 hours without eating and try to keep food around me at all costs. But sometimes shit happens. I almost always eat before I go to bed and alot of the time I keep a shake a my bedside. I don’t wait in the morning because if I do then I’m REALLY FUCKING MOODY and just feel like shit. Not really dizzy or nauseous, just cranky.

Happens to me too.

I call it Hangry.

As you can see I am very creative.

Mind if I use that?

I’m the same way… have actualy punched holes in my walls becasue i’m hungry… kinda wierd how u can get so mad over something so small
