When you think you feel hungry, chances are you may be dehydrated instead.
Before you grab a handful of chips or dive into those leftovers, pour yourself a nice glass of water and wait a few.
Sometimes dehydration is mistaken for hunger and we eat rather than treat.
To ward off the growls and grumbles, drink water throughout the day. This way, when you feel hungry, the sensation will be the real deal. Otherwise, you may wind up overeating when all your body really wanted was a refill.
