Hanger is real! Not only is it real, but it is also your body trying to tell you something is not right! In this episode of Coffee & Kettlebells, we are going to dive into what really is causing you to have an increased appetite and feel crazy hungry all the time. I chat with guests Sarah Fragoso and Dr. Brooke Kalanick, authors of the best-selling book Hangry, who educate us what is actually happening in our bodies when we feel hangry. Hint: it's your hormones!
One of my favor parts of the episode is when Dr. Brooke says, “How many times do we reach for the sugary treat instead of a high protein snack when our energy is in the tank? We feel that intense craving and think we’re getting a strong message that the cookie is exactly what our body need. In reality, this is not a cookie deficiency but rather our blood sugar on the fritz, thanks to insulin and cortisol issues.” I think most people think they are craving a cookie because they are craving a cookie, and they don’t realize that craving is actually stemming from hormonal imbalances. Dr. Brooke and Sarah explain that our hormones are talking to us all the time and telling us what we need. Instead of hating our hormones, we just need to start listening to what they are really trying to tell us, and the same goes for our metabolism! If we can learn to listen to our hormones, we can learn to balance them and successfully take control of our appetite and foods cravings.
