We all know what it is to be hungry.
You get up, grab a piece of paper and start reading.
You read it.
You pick it up and you start counting your fingers.
You look up at the clock and count up.
You keep counting until you’re done, but your eyes are still watering from the pain of counting.
We know the pain, and the shame of it, but most of us can’t even feel it.
What makes us feel it?
What causes us to feel hunger?
How do we know when it’s time to stop counting?
A new study by researchers at Tel Aviv University and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem is shedding light on these questions.
Their study, published in the journal PLOS One, was based on data collected over two years.
They compared how people in Israel and other countries feel when they are hungry with how they feel when eating healthy foods.
They also used a novel approach to measure hunger in healthy people, which involved asking them to eat their daily portion of fruits and vegetables.
The study looked at how the hunger in the two groups differed.
The results are striking.
The people who ate less healthy foods did not experience higher hunger, the researchers found.
And the people who had more healthy food had lower hunger levels than those who ate more healthy foods, even after controlling for other variables such as how many calories they ate.
The researchers think the study is an important first step toward understanding the relationship between food and hunger, and it also raises important questions about how healthy food can improve people’s health.
The research is also important because it shows the relationship can be causal, meaning that a diet can have an impact on how people feel, the team said.
“What we found is that in people who eat more healthy meals, they feel less hunger, but they also feel more energy, which can be very good,” said Dr. Yoav Yossi, the lead author and a professor of food sciences at the Sackler Faculty of Medicine at Tel-Aviv University.
The findings were consistent with previous studies that showed healthy eating can help improve people and even decrease their hunger.
But the team found that when they looked at people who consumed more healthy, high-fat foods, they actually had a greater hunger score.
The researchers believe this difference is due to different aspects of the healthy diet, including how it is prepared.
The research team also wanted to know whether the increased energy intake was a good thing for the body, but their findings did not support this.
“We need better understanding of the mechanism by which the increase in energy intake can lead to a reduction in hunger,” Yossib said.
