According to Team beachbody, 70 to 80 percent of our population is chronically dehydrated. When a body goes through dehydration it starts to crave foods with sugar. This craving is often mistaken for hunger pains and causes us to eat.
Lack of hydration can cause us to over eat, eating fatty type foods to satisfy those cravings when all we needed was a glass of water.
The best remedy to avoid these cravings is the drink a lot of water. The recommended amount of water to drink is at least eight glasses. If you are dieting, you should drink more than that. Do a little experiment and chart or record just how much water you are drinking each day.
Chart this for at least a couple of days. I think you’ll be surprised with how little you are drinking each day.
You should drink a glass of water whenever you feel hunger pains. It is also good to drink a glass of water about thirty minutes before meals.
Also, after dinner, drink a glass of water every hour until bed time. You’ll probably be up in the middle of the night using the bathroom, but this will keep your body hydrated while it is in the fat-burning mode.
Following these suggestions will help keep your digestive system cleansed properly.
