Why am I so hungry after a nap?
Similarly, it is asked, why do I crave sweets after a nap?
For many people, eating dessert (or chocolate) after meals is a habit. Sugar cravings that strike after a meal may be due to serotonin, a feel-good brain chemical that's associated with an elevated mood. Eating a sugary dessert causes serotonin levels to rise in the brain, which can make you feel calmer and happier.
Additionally, why do I wake up thirsty after a nap? Dehydration is a state of fluid deficit of the body. This happens because during day time a person may be drinking water to quench the excess thirst (a feature of high blood glucose due to uncontrolled diabetes), but at night after sleeping, 7-8 hours may pass without drinking, leading to dehydration.
Also asked, why do I feel nauseous and hungry when I wake up?
