You Might Just Be Dehydrated
Appetite and thirst are regulated by the same part of your brain. When you’re dehydrated, the wires get crossed and what feels like hunger is actually thirst. Before you grab the chips, drink a glass of water and wait 15 minutes.
Tip: Stay on top of your fluid intake. Drink an 8 oz. glass of water every hour for 8-10 hours.
