when is it unhealthy to be too hungry?

I don't know if I would recommend it to others, but I personally follow an ADF intermittent fasting schedule, which means that I typically alternate "eating days" with "non-eating days," so hopefully I can explain my experience.

Being hungry is never fun, especially when you're trying to go to sleep. That said, if you fast for a few hours (about 10+ in my experience, but this may vary), then you actually stop being hungry after a while. I typically have my last meal at 8pm, go to bed around 11pm, and wake up at 7. This means that for my entire non-eating day, I actually don't feel all that hungry. When I do, a cup of unsweetened black coffee is more than enough to make me feel okay again.

The human body is a very complicated and fascinating machine!

Again, I don't recommend what I do - if you are interested in trying it yourself, ask your doctor beforehand.
