Being hungry makes you angry. Prolonged hunger along with a stressful situation, like a computer malfunction, or tedious evaluation work, dials up the anger in a person.
The hungry person is then more likely to react in an irritated manner or delve into negative perspectives.
The negative mood effect that being hungry produces even comes before the actual sensation of hunger.
The stomach growls come after your mood has changed, due to your body (and brain) running on empty.
The brain requires glucose to function properly, and its limbic system, the part associated with hunger, fear, and anxiety, starts to give out automatic responses when the glucose levels are low.
Eating something which is high in glucose can satiate your hunger and anger at the same time.
Grains, berries, and cereals are a good choice, and nuts are also a great snack to have when hangry.
Hunger causes certain chemical and hormonal changes in the body, and the brain processes these signals the same way it would process sadness, fear or anger.
The brain tries to tell us when we are hungry that the body is not in a good shape and an action (like eating food in this case) needs to be taken.
If you are unable to eat anything due to some reason, it's a good idea to tune into your emotions, listening to what your body is feeling.
Our emotions, when tapped into, can calm down a bit with our awareness towards them.
