STOP! Think.... and Drink (Water, Of Course!) - How Staying Hydrated May be the Key to Shedding a Few Extra Pounds...

By: Alex Liska

Sometimes when people start to feel a lack of energy, start feeling lethargic and a bit drained they immediately think they are either tired or hungry. "Think" is they key word here... These may all be symptoms of dehydration:
-Feeling lethargic (drowsy, tired, drunk feeling)
-Lack of Energy
-Cravings for food even after having eaten 
-Inability to focus or "stay focused"
-Crankiness
-Feeling weak or without sense of direction for a very short period of time...

The symptoms listed above are often mistaken with hunger which can lead to eating extra calories when they are not needed. If you experience any of the above symptoms or other symptoms along those lines: "STOP! Think.... and Drink Some Water!" It may help alleviate some if not ALL of those symptoms and may hold the key to NOT over-eating. 
Your body has its own ways of trying to signal to you that it's time to drink fluids. Once you start feeling thirsty it is usually too late and you are already dehydrated. If you proceed to ignore this 'thirst' you may begin to feel dizzy, lethargic or start thinking you are hungry. Why not have a glass of fresh water? 
FACT: Water has ZERO calories, it helps restore and maintain electrolyte balance, helps flush your body of impurities (in turn you also get clearer skin), helps fight food cravings, helps you feel re-energized and helps stimulate your metabolism just to name a few things!

Give this a try and see how it works! You have nothing to lose except cravings & maybe a few unwanted pounds of fat.... :)
