How Hungry Are You?

I'm always hungry. That's because I'm on a diet where I don't eat food after 5PM. I call it my "No Dinner Diet." Most people think I am crazy, and maybe I am. There are a lot of different ways to say you're hungry in English. In tonight's podcast I go over a few of them and I add a couple extra just for the show notes.

starving- extremely hungry. "The men worked hard all day and were starving when they came home."
ravenous - extremely hungry. "I skiped breakfast and now I'm ravenous. "
famished- extremely hungry. "When can we eat dinner? I'm famished!"
peckish - some what hungry but not very hungry. "I'm a bit peckish but not starving."
