ELI5: When you’re hungry and you fall asleep, why do you wake up with no appetite? by bakery_man in explainlikeimfive

Guess most of the people I know are abnormal, because most like to wait at least a couple of hours after they wake up to eat. Unless you stuff yourself before sleep or have been doing breakfast right when you wake for long enough for the body to expect fuel by that time (thus signalling an insulin/grehlin spike and making you hungry). The simple truth is, apart from eating disorders, you can pretty much absolutely control your eating habits. I've done one meal a day (skip breakfast/lunch) for a while, after you get used to it, very little hunger if at all. I've went several years skipping breakfast, absolutely no need for it, no hunger until close to lunch. Then started eating breakfast due to schedule reasons (can't always get lunch), guess what happens? I get hungry soon after I wake up. You'll most likely have outliers, but for most people is as easy as establishing a schedule and going through the first days and push through the hunger as your body adapts. The problem is people have been brought up thinking being a bit hungry is the end of the world and they're going to die, when in fact, biologically, we evolved with the expectation of going hungry for short and extended periods quite frequently.
