That’s hanger as in anger with an “h”. Not hanger as in something to hang clothes.

I remember floating in the water with my cousin at the Cape while we discussed our family’s issues with hunger. When we were hungry, we got angry. At least, the women in our family did. We came up with the term “hangry.” Hanger has since become a thing, but I’m convinced we came up with it.

In any case, hanger is a real issue…a blood sugar issue. I assumed I was hypoglycemic. And I likely was. It should have been my first clue that diabetes was on it’s way and nip it in the bud immediately, but I had no idea something could be done about it.

Here’s how to manage hanger: cut out sugar.

I know. I know. No one wants to give up sugar. It tastes so good! And we have nasty little bugs in our gut that feed on it and further convince us we need it…but more about that later. In the meantime, try to cut it out as much as you can. Start making better choices. Replace some sugary snacks with nuts or veggie chips. Something healthier.

Need help? Aside from having someone tie you up and spoon-feed you pureed spinach until you’ve completely detoxed, of course. Try taking chromium. Chromium can help control your blood sugar (glucose) levels. Plexus has a great product (Slim), which contains chromium, that can help curb your cravings and control your blood glucose levels.

For your sake and the sake of everyone around you, don’t sit around thinking there’s nothing you can do about your hanger issues. Manage it.

Here’s to your health!
