Its that mid afternoon hangry time (anger induced by hunger). A time of day that everything can go downhill with your diet. Lunch is a distant memory, dinner is hours away. You need something to eat right now to give you that energy to make it through the rest of your work day. There are cookies in the lunch room calling your name. Its actually quite normal; your glucose levels are dropping from breakfast and lunch. If you let your body get to this point, you will be craving simple carbohydrates which are mainly highly processed refined sugary foods like cookies, pop, candy/chocolate.
In order to avoid this crash, your lunch should include some complex carbohydrates like potato/sweet potato, rice, oatmeal, chick peas, and quinoa. You also need to eat frequently, every 2 to 3 hours. Yours meals should be balanced so your body is not lacking any nutrients and spiking your insulin levels which are the cause of cravings. Each meal should contain protein, carbohydrates, and healthy fats.
