Hangry – you may have heard some athletes use this word, a combination of hungry and angry.

When someone’s sugar levels have dropped so low (usually after training) they crave food and mood wise are a little snappy or in tolerant. The scientific term for this is Renalin – low blood sugar state – starving feeling


If it is your intention to do a run on an empty tummy, then its expected (maybe just warn your partner before). You can do this by not eating for 3 hours before your training session. Just remember to recover after properly otherwise it will impair your next training session. 


For recovery I would suggest:

1. Cool down 

2. Stretches, foam rolling.

3. Epsom salt bath, with some cold water on your legs after (hot, cold – helps get “toxin’s” you don’t want out your muscles)

4. Refuel with healthy food and UCAN protein


What I have found has helped me with the “munchies” is adding some fat to my choc UCAN – so I have slow burning carbs keeping my sugar levels, level, some protein and some fat/oil.

I have found that MCT (medium chain triglyceride) oil is best, as your body will know exactly what to do with it, and its runny at room temperature.


Happy recovering!!!


Until next time…

If you have any comments or questions, please email them ( ) and I or the UCAN team will answer them.  The questions and answers will then be posted on here, to help others.
