Absolutely! I get a headache, upset stomach, jittery and cranky, just like others mentioned. My boyfriend is hypoglycemic so we are both hyper aware of sugar drops and mood shifts like this, especially since we suspect one of his daughters is as well.
Eating regularly - something small no more than 1.5 hours apart, for me - keeps this away.
I asked dh and he very tactfully replied, "I think we all do."

yep.. If I get hungry.. I am quite cranky. Eating usually solves the prob If I let it go too far.. I feel sick to my stomach, and sometimes weak.

I get grumpy when I am hungry too, or when there is a lot of stress. I also tend to get heartburn and a headache if I do not eat regularly. -_-

Grumpy and weepy. It is hard for me to cope with much when I am hungry or tired.
I am not yet where I would like to be, but I am no longer where I was.

not really, i don't think. i might get sluggish, but not generally grumpy, unless i end up eating late
more its that i get grumpy, cranky or frustrated more easily if i haven't been drinking my water.

When my DH, then a new BF, first met my mom and a close friend the both told him the key to keeping me happy....Keeping Me Fed!! LOL!! It was a well established fact that I get very grumpy when hungry!!
I'm not so sure that it is as true now as it was before SP and healthier eating. I'm sure if I felt "starving' then yes, but for normal hunger I can hold it together much better than I used to!

I do - I suddenly get to a point when I *really* need to eat and woe betide anyone (eg my husband) who doesn't take that seriously! The worst times are when we are travelling and hunger hits on a motorway somewhere with no food readily available.
Generally, though, I have been grumpier since I started watching what I eat. I'm not cutting my calories down to silly levels - I usually have 1400 or more - but I have noticed that I have been much more irritable
I feel guilty about it but am not sure what to do - the only solution would seem to be grazing all day which really would defeat the object!
I am not going to be 2.5 stones overweight any more. Period.

Yes, and usually get a headache too. You don't want to be around me if you add sleepy to the combination.

I do get grumpy when I am really hungry. Especially when I have to wait too long in a restaurant when I am in that state!

Unfortunately I do! I think it has something to do with my blood sugar dropping. I try to have a piece of fruit or something to tied me over.
