"If you’ve skipped lunch, avoid estate agents at all costs.

"Making decisions on an empty stomach can lead to questionable choices, new research suggests – and the effects extend way beyond our food selections.

"Most of us know that heading to the supermarket with a growling stomach can mean leaving with an overflowing trolly of unhealthy treats, but the study from Dundee University found ‘hunger fog’ can also prevent us thinking clearly when it comes to big life choices."

Never, EVER!, go food shopping when you are hungry!

You'll end up with a ton of crappe in your cart!

I believe they're more sexually deprived than anything else, depraved perhaps, maybe Prince Andy will share some of his insights.

So they are saying you should stuff your face constantly to make good life choices?Eating too much is one of the worst life choices you could make.

I actually start getting a bit impatient and grumpy when hungry. So, yes, hunger does start to distort my cognitive abilities to a certain degree, certainly.

It not only does hunger cloud your judgement, it makes you feel nauseated, and for some including myself tend to get the shakes. it's part of a condition called  Hypoglycemia https://www.everydayhealth.com/hypoglycemia/guide/
