Do you feel hungry even after a huge meal? Do you find yourself snacking on tidbits, biscuits or even chips?
Well, you may be thirsty instead of hungry!
Sometimes you would have eaten too much food, and didn’t drink enough water to accompany your meal. This usually happens during buffets and company functions where food is abundant and alcohol is free flowing!
Another reason for feeling hungry is that you didn’t consume enough protein and fat in your meal. Protein and fat are harder to break down, hence it takes longer duration for the food to pass through the digestive system. The intestines will also be processing the food to absorb all nutrients needed for the body.
So the next time you feel hungry, try drinking a glass of water! It will dissipate your hunger pangs!
