According to a new survey of 2,000 Americans, being “hangry” leads to an average of four arguments per week.
Conducted by OnePoll on behalf of RXBAR, the survey examined snacking habits in relation to their overall healthy eating habits and goals.
66% of people said they often feel hangry when they eat healthy snacks.
The survey found the average person will make over 1,000 “snackrifices” a year – that’s at least three a day.
Six in 10 respondents said they attempt to avoid snacking because they’re often left feeling guilty about it afterwards.
Here are the top five reasons we get hangry.
1. We waited too long to eat.
2. We didn’t eat enough at a meal.
3. We didn’t like what we ate.
4. We’re on a diet.
5. We sacrificed something that tastes good for a healthier but much less delicious alternative.
