Call it greed, gluttony, voracity. Or weakness, passion, lust, or love.
There’s always one or two among us who are constantly hungry. They eat an entire meal with you, and 40 minutes later, they’re soliciting a hot dog stand and a pretzel cart.
And you think to yourself, what are these people made out of? And where is all the food going?
Well, we’re not here to educate you on the science of digestion. You can look that up on Wikipedia. But what we have done is made a list of 16 things people who are constantly hungry can definitely relate to.
Any of these remind you of someone? Share the list with them and watch their reaction!
1. Supper? Why the food not?
No more being all hush-hush about the idea of supper. What’s wrong with eating a meal after dinner?
2. Hit the gym in the name of pizza.
The only reason for working out (well not the only reason, we know it’s supposed to good for health and stuff) is so we can enjoy all the pizza we want. With extra cheese. And that tall cup of velvety chocolate milkshake.
3. Keep track of the crucial hours.
The most crucial hours are between 10 am – 12 pm, 2 pm – 4 pm, 4 pm – 6 pm, and 12 am – 4 am. Even though every hour has the same number of minutes, these particular hours will feel awfully long. Those are the hours between breakfast and lunch, 2-3 hours after lunch and a little before dinnertime, and those TV-dominated post-midnight hours.
4. You end up brushing your teeth twice in a night.
You’re all clean and ready to jump into bed. But your gut decides otherwise. The next thing you know, you’re sticking your head into the fridge fishing for that half-eaten pastrami sandwich. In the end, you’re back to where you started—cleaning and flossing.
5. Why can’t food ads leave you alone?
In all seriousness, food ads are both a danger and trouble. They’re calling out to us as if to say, “Eat me, eat me now!” It’s obvious we can’t just eat off our computer screens or TV. We’d actually have to go out and buy you. And you’re telling me it’s my fault that I suddenly end up in Taco Bell 5 minutes later?
6. Beware of what you see and read.
Basically beware of everything around you. The simple act of reading the word “potato” can lead to a 2-minute reverie about fries, cheese, bacon, and ice cream. Wait, how did ice cream get in there? See what I mean?
7. Being grumpy is warranted.
An empty stomach causes a crabby temper. Forgive us for the way we behave when we’re hungry! Our appetite takes over sometimes.
8. At lunch, you’re thinking about what to have for dinner.
Is this a bad thing? We are really just planners. Really.
9. Hunger is the enemy of focus.
Hunger makes concentration disappear. Poof! Just like that. So let us eat first, then we can talk.
10. Weird combinations don’t bother you.
Grilled cheese with chocolate milk? Fries on pizza? Peanut butter-stuffed chicken? No fuss. After all, they are going into the same place.
11. Right before going to bed, you get excited for tomorrow’s breakfast.
Getting a good night’s sleep is awesome. But getting a good night’s sleep knowing an awesome breakfast awaits you the next morning is awesome-r!
12. Wasting food is an absolute no-no.
Most of us don’t do it on purpose, but there are times when we end up wasting food—either because we’re too stuffed or that we forgot we had it in the first place. But think to a time when you were starving and fantasizing about your favorite food. And to think that just yesterday you abandoned that last bit of pasta! If only you could have it right now. Those bits and crumbs will come back to haunt you when you least expect it.
13. Eating makes you feel better.
Besides the fact that nutrition is a basic necessity for living beings, eating can make you feel good inside. We’re not encouraging stress-eating. It’s just food really does make you feel better. Look at Marshall.
14. You often have food dreams.
Yes, sometimes that delicious stack of pancakes makes your way into your night’s sleep. No harm, no foul.
15. When can we start downloading food?
16. Eating is one of your favorite parts of your day.
