Joel H. Fuhrman, MD
Family Medicine
Toxic hunger is a physical addiction to an unhealthful, low-micronutrient diet. Its symptoms are generally feelings that we have been taught to interpret as hunger. However, they are actually signs of your body's toxicity.

Symptoms of toxic hunger are:
  • Headaches
  • Weakness, shakiness and fatigue
  • Stomach cramping
  • Lightheadedness
  • Esophageal spasms
  • Growling stomach
  • Irritability and inability to concentrate
These uncomfortable symptoms are experienced to different degrees by different individuals.
