Have you ever wondered why your tummy starts to grumble as soon as you open your eyes in the morning, or why you're starving even after you just ate a hearty meal?

Youíre not getting enough shut-eye.

If you find yourself waking up after a little to no sleep; theres a good chance youíll be looking towards carbs for a boost of energy. When you donít get enough sleep, a fake-hunger response is triggered urging you to fill your grumbly tummy with some not-so-healthy foods.

Youíre low on fluids

Dehydration is one of the most common reasons people think they're hungry. Symptoms that are associated with dehydration such as sleepiness and low energy actually mimic that of hunger. So when you think you're starving, you might actually just need a glass of water.

You had a small breakfast

Youíve probably heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and such authorities on this subject werenít lying. Having a decent sized meal in the morning means that your blood sugar levels will remain constant throughout the day, and youíll be less likely to crave unhealthy food.

You're Bored

Weíve all done this. Sometimes you have nothing to do, and a packet of chips in close proximity can be a pleasing thing. Itís not uncommon to binge when youíre bored, because when theres nothing going on to stimulate you; the brain looks to food to release the dopamine neurons.
