What do you eat when you're HANGRY?

Answered on August 19, 2014

I'm not talking about a meal here, I'm talking about what you eat to get you to the meal you still have to cook. Those easily accessible, snackable, satiating foods you can grab when you're dying of hunger.

For some reason I end up eating a lot of red cabbage. Bone broth. Avocado. Coconut cream.

I have to stay away from cheese, nuts, and especially nut butters because they're too easy to eat waaaay too much of.

edit the edit: Yeah, hangry. You know, like hungry to the point that you turn into a raging beast.

Also, glucagon and cortisol will be released, depending on how low the blood-sugar gets and will release liver gylcogen or amino acids to boost blood sugar even if he went some where and sat for 15-20 minutes. The exercise in fact does help, but the point isn't to work out. No go flog bacon you angry little prick.

No you don't. It burns fat, glycerol from fat is a gluconeogenic material. Please, just because you got butt-hurt about your anti-bacon fetish doesn't make everything I say wrong. Do your fucking research.

Oops, sorry. You're right, they are very easy to overdo.

Amen to that! I'll tear into some leftover meat when I have it, but too often I don't. A tin of sardines does the trick though.

I didn't say that I don't do dairy and nuts. They're just a dangerous combination of tasty and calorie-dense, so if I get into those foods when I'm really hungry I tend to overdo it.

going for a walk won't activate glycogenolysis (release glucose from glycogen stored in liver and muscle).. need something a bit more intense than that!

Desert, from a really nice restaraunt. Paleo or not, I want my sugar and chocolate and icecream!

A couple of boiled eggs and a couple of glasses of water.

A slice of cold, leftover steak. Nothin' beats gnawing on that.

Nothing. Go somewhere, go for a walk, breath, have some water. Hangry=hypoglycemia and your body needs to find its fat stores and learn to regulate. For me, hypo didn't last more than 10-15 minutes and I don't think that protein is going to be digested fast enough to make a big difference.

I keep a bag of those peeled baby carrots in the fridge for snacking and for when I need something crunchy. Added bonus, the dog loves them too!

My short list: hard boiled eggs (I keep them on hand), tinned sardines, two squares of baking chocolate, part of a US Wellness pemmican bar, bone broth, bone jello, maybe chug a mason jar of tea, maybe tear into some leftover meat from the fridge.

I hear you on the cabbage -- I've always got some fermenting into kimchi and it really satisfies the crunchy/salty type cravings.

I also avoid the dairy and the nuts, also fruit.

Pork rinds. Make sure they contain NO vegetable oils.

A hard boiled egg and, because I do dairy, cheese, kefir, or Greek yogurt. I'll occasionally grab a handful of nuts, but find that sometimes they make me even hungrier.

Any whole food. If a whole food tastes good for you it most likely is good for you. Coconut meat seems to be a good go to food. It is tasty and I can get them for 99 cents each.

Avocados are a huge one for me. I'll either put some oil and salt on it, or chop up a few more things for a spicy guac. Tuna is eaten a few times a week as well, usually with pickles, peppers, and mustard. For energy, I'll do some sort of green juice.

Since changing to the paleo style, I've rearranged my kitchen around quite a bit and made it very easy to prepare food. It doesn't seem like an inconvenience to chop/juice/clean etc anymore, so my options are pretty varied for making quick snacks. This will make your ideas with what you have on hand more broad.

A square of 100% dark chocolate. A spoonful of coconut butter. A hard-boiled egg would be good but that takes time to cook unless you have them already made. Sorry that you don't do dairy or nuts since cheese and nut butters are also quick, easy, and filling. I don't find veggies or fruit very satisfying though they are tasty.

I know you said you are staying away from nut butters but one of my favorites is Carrot sticks dipped in Almond nut butter. SO GOOD! I keep a jar of it at my desk at work :)

Also great with celery or apple :)
