Hangry? Fix it by first eating protein and only then carbs.

Hangry means you feel hungry and angry at the same time.

Hangry happens when your blood sugar level is too low because you have not eaten for a long time.

To prevent this situation from taking too long and thereby damaging your brain (yes this can happen), your body releases the hormones adrenaline and cortisol that raise blood sugar levels. However, these hormones also cause substances released in your brain that activate feelings of anger, irritation and impulsive behavior.

By first eating the proteins in your meal and after that the carbs, your blood sugar level will be more stable compared to first eating the carbs. The more stable, the better!
