A. Typically they are a grumbling stomach, headaches, light-headedness, irritability, fatigue, and an inability to focus. These are looked upon as symptoms of withdrawal produced by the body’s attempts to detoxify the wastes produced by harmful, low-nutrient foods.
2. How do you make the difference with true hunger.
A. True hunger is felt mainly in the mouth and throat and upper chest area, rather than the head and stomach.
3. Was it really TRUE hunger, or toxic?
A. In my view they are symptoms of toxic hunger, as true hunger grows in intensity much as when one is dehydrated: a powerful and growing bodily demand for nourishment. This becomes ravenous in a short period of time.
4. or some kind of deficiency-fueled hunger?
A. It could have been a deficiency fueled hunger, but hard to say for certain.
Unlikely in my view.
