Most of the world's population does not but for some reason thinks being hungry makes them tired. It simply is a poor mindset and there is no physiological response of the body to back this up.
I can't even work out, really, unless I'm in a fasted state. I feel lethargic and full. When I'm lifting in a fasted state, I feel "hungry" metaphorically as well as actually. I feel like I need to accomplish something in order to earn my meal.
