Getting hungry after being drunk is a common occurrence. No matter how much you try to resist, you end up eating something, which in turn causes some big problems.
New studies have shown that it’s the neural function that makes you hungry after being drunk.
“The alcohol is active in the brain on a group of nerve cells in the area of the brain that regulates food intake, and these nerve cells make a protein called agouti-related proteins—so they are AgRP neurons. And when these neurons make this protein, they regulate food intake and alcohol is modulating the effect of these neurons so as to increase food intake.” The study said.
