Sometimes when we're actually thirsty, we think we're hungry. My DH does that all the time; he'll be banging around the kitchen looking for something more to eat, but really he needs a glass of water.
And sometimes we think we're hungry, but what it is, is wanting a sugar "fix". Loading up on simple carbohydrates may give us a burst of energy, but it'll be followed by a "crash" and then we want more sugar to get us back up. Perhaps your body was missing the sugar high from the day before.
I think a pp was right, about how we can get to where we don't recognize really being hungry-- we've eaten so much for so long not so much out of hunger, as it is, because the food's available-- that what we think is hunger is actually something else. Doesn't mean we need to starve ourselves til the point of being sick or passing out from hunger, so we'll know what it is. Just means we need to stop and ask ourselves, are we actually hungry, or is it thirst, is it a desire for sugar, is it boredom or stress or wanting to eat for some other emotion.
