So today was very eventful. I kept waking up in the middle of the night, I woke up early to scramble eggs for breakfast. I went to school for 7 hours, took 10 minutes to eat chili, went to work (lawn care) for 4 hours, then played an hour of tennis with my buddies.

Now I'm home and I'm craving anything and everything. Hot dogs, ice cream, chocolate, BBQ chips, chicken breast, turkey sandwich, hamburger, fries, fruit, etc.

Is this normal? Furthermore, is this sort of craving unmanly?

After a hard day of work ... I look forward to dinner, but I typically 'crave' something altogether different.

Why would you think it was unmanly?

Bodily satisfaction has its place in the good life. Reward yourself.

 

In an older, simpler time, this was called "being tired and hungry."

 

No.
It's called being young.

If you are craving food in general I wouldn't think it is a problem. If you are craving sugary foods it could be a sign of addiction to sweet foods but it just sounds like you're hungry! Which is pretty normal when you're young and active. Just try and eat decent food. Eggs for breakfast definitely gets a thumbs up! Try eating a bit slower when you are craving food as it should satisfy your hunger better.

Eating certainly isn't unmanly. It definitely isn't unmanly after a long day of school, work and sports.
