Hangry: The sudden feeling of ill temper that arises when a person needs to eat, most likely due to a drop in blood glucose. It is a combination of the words hungry and angry. The word was added to the Oxford English Dictionary in 2018 but was first used in a medical journal in 1956. Hanger Management is a book for just about anyone who eats! It is well researched, reader friendly and full of practical tips to get a handle on that hangry feeling. Dr. Albers starts the book by explaining the biological causes of hanger and how to avoid it. The book can be read cover to cover or browsed for tips dealing with a specific concern. Hanger management tips include how to deal with eating on the road, coping with nighttime nibbling and how to hang up on your hangry voice. There are a total of 45 useful tips. I found this book informative as well as enjoyable to read.
