Hungry or Just Thirsty?

The next time you’re tempted to reach for a snack, try asking yourself, “Could I actually be thirsty?” Many of us mistake thirst for hunger, thinking we want food when what our bodies really need is a drink of pure water. So we overeat, and leave our bodies still thirsting.
