The hungrier you are the harder it is to resist unhealthy foods.
When your stomach is empty your blood sugar levels drop. This increases your desire for fast foods like burgers, pizza, chips and soft drinks. Researchers discovered that the body focuses on feeding itself high calorie foods to get blood sugar levels back to normal. An empty stomach also makes you more likely to start your meal with the wrong foods, even when you have a variety of choices.
Perhaps you have experienced this before? You haven’t eaten in a while and you’re starting to get hungry. As time passes almost any food is appealing, healthy or not. If you give into temptation, you eat more than normal.
