Don’t be so ‘hangry’

Anger linked to low glucose levels

If you fight often with your spouse, hunger might be partly to blame. A recent study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences reveals that low glucose levels make it more difficult to control emotions, particularly anger. The study asked more than 100 married couples to test glucose levels in the morning and at night. Then, before bed, each spouse would stick anywhere between zero and 51 pins in a voodoo doll representing the other. The ones with the lowest glucose levels stuck in the most pins. So, try eating a snack to control that spark of anger—nutritionists recommend consuming protein and carbs every four hours.
