I woke up hungry. This is odd because I had a rather big snack before bed, something I should never do. So why is it one can tank up and find themselves a few hours later feeling like they haven’t eaten in a week?
It’s always been said that one hour after eating Chinese food you are hungry again. Is it the carbs of the rice, is it the vegetables? It seems well balanced with several food groups in each meal. I can eat Italian food and feel full for days.
The appestat just doesn’t know when not to kick in at the proper time. Also, what is it about hunger? Why does it feel like that? It isn’t really a pain but rather a nagging sensation. It isn’t even like a stomach ache; it’s a totally different feeling.
Most eating is habitual. I’ve had days where I’ve totally forgotten to eat. I was never reminded by hunger. However if I have an English muffin a half hour before bed there I am awake at 3am feeling starved. Go figure. There are millions of people who are going hungry in the world and here I am at 3am desiring another meal all because I ate something too late. It just isn’t right.
