Learn to See Hangry In Him & Yourself

If your husband is given to hanger, you’d be wise to try to avoid dealing with difficult situations when hasn’t eaten in awhile. Save things likely to lead to an argument for after a meal.

Also be aware if you’re prone to hanger. Certain male/female difference suggest women may be more likely to suffer from hanger, so examine yourself well. If you suspect hunger makes you less kind, learn to say “Can we discuss this after I eat?”

  1. I don’t need to do that. He does it for me. He’s asked me more than once whether I want a fight or a snack. He’s almost always right. I lose my appetite/ hunger cues for weeks at a time, but I know to eat every 4-5 hours. DH has my eating schedule down. I almost always keep nuts on me. So if I’m out and attacked by dizziness/ fatigue/ hunger I have something on hand and everyone’s heads stay attached.

    He’s not so good at recognizing it in himself. If he’s uncharacteristicly moody I’ll ask if he needs a snack. Then I bring him a high protein something to eat and give him some space :D. Now if MİL can figure this out I suspect her life would be easier. FIL is much more manageable when they stay here and therefore have a predictable eating schedule. He also doesn’t get to eat high sugar empty calorie crap when he’s here. Does wonders for his mood.

  2. My first thought was the same as Steve’s: what about sexual hunger? But then I thought about how this shows how much we are influenced by our physical well-being and our environments. I can get rather snippy if I’m hungry, if I need sex, if I’m tired, sick, too hot, too cold, pressed for time, bad allergies, the car won’t start, and just about anything else. I need to look at myself and realize the difference between a reason and an excuse. I’m snippy “because” . . . But that doesn’t “excuse” my bad behavior. Try to deal with the cause appropriately, but also try to bring every thought captive and make it obedient to Christ. Even, and maybe especially, the snippy thoughts.

  3. Please keep in mind, when writing your Friday post, that women can be sexually “hangry”, too. It is not just a man thing.

  4. My wife and I have learned from bitter experience that we can’t talk about anything controversial after 10 PM. We would wake up the next morning and wonder what the big deal was. Learn your time and avoid it. Just a variation on the theme of peripheral things aggravating our anger.
