It's common to confuse thirst for hunger, and if you're trying to lose weight it's important to know the difference. Confusing these two powerful cravings may cause you to consume more calories than you need and prevent your weight loss goals. The same part of your brain is responsible for interpreting both hunger and thirst signals which can often result in mixed messages. You should aim to eat every three to four hours, and if you feel hungry between meals, you may simply be thirsty.
If your daily liquid intake begins with a few cups of coffee, by the time you feel thirsty you may already be dehydrated. Dehydration symptoms include dry eyes, headache, sluggishness, nausea, and dizziness. Your urine may also be a dark yellow and your mouth may feel dry. Drink water at regular intervals throughout the day, even if you don't feel thirsty, and you'll have less of a chance of becoming dehydrated.
