Hangriness is no joke - and I wanted to know more about what was actually going on physiologically. Is it really an excuse for getting irritated with my husband or would better timed snacks solve the issue? 

As adults, you might think you’re impervious to mood swings and temper tantrums from being sleepy or hungry - but we’re basically oversized toddlers. 

On today’s episode, you’ll learn:

  • If hangry-ness is actually a thing
  • What blood sugar levels have to do with it
  • And how to keep them stable so you don’t have to experience irritability every time you’re hungry
