No, we haven’t misspelled that. What’s the difference between being hungry and hangry? You know, when you are really hungry, you will sometimes eat all those food you don’t even like. And of course, you will eat because your body sends you the signals which tell you how you need more ”fuel”.
But, what happens if you get hangry? It usually means you’ve waited too long to eat, and you’re overly hungry. Or it can mean you’re an emotional eater. Sometime, it’s both…which isn’t great.
If you regularly experience “hanger”, and it ruins your whole diet, then check out what science says about being hangry. You might find a solution to your problem right here.
Winter. People tend to eat more during the winter time. Why is that so? Food helps insulate your body so when it is cold outside you’ll stay warm–so being hungrier in cold months than warm is normal. What isn’t normal? Sitting at your window and watching the snow fall while eating an entire XXL pizza.
Another reason this happens? Your body doesn’t get enough Vitamin D from the sun in the winter. Vitamin D is ‘responsible’ for keeping your bones healthy, your immune system high, and the most important thing-your serotonin levels in the proper balance! So, yes, you may be depressed, and that is why you eat more.
Speaking of Sadness…Are you having a bad week? Don’t deal with your anger by stuffing your face. Go for a walk. Take a workout class. Talk to a friend. Being sad makes a lot of people eat, and so does being angry. If you can identify what you’re feeling, and why you’re feeling it, you’ll be more likely to avoid the fridge.
Nutrients. The third reason may be that you are missing nutrients in your body, like vitamins or minerals. If your body isn’t getting what it needs from food, you’ll be irritable and hungry all the time. Sound familiar? You can check your status of those important nutrients easily with your doctor.

I thought the other was just a misspelled thing younger people made, but now it makes more sense. Quite insightful.
Here I was coming to correct the title, not knowing that I was going to find out about something like this. Nice to know and it explains a lot.
Well that explains it! I needed to read the more scientific part of it.
