Like with all things, balance and common sense need to prevail. My own personal experience has been that whatever you do routinely is what your body will want more of. Simply put, if you drink lots of water and eat several small meals throughout each day, you will become thirsty or hungry when you miss a snack, meal, or drink that have become habitual.
I used to eat very poorly and binges were common. I love water, but I never drank enough. Now, I find, that I get dry mouthed and thirsty if I don't have a water bottle on the go at all times. My stomach has become so accustomed to the scheduled snacks and meals that, I've come to notice hunger pangs at particular times of the day even if I've just eaten!! That has lead me to believe that I can't trust my hunger pangs and what works best for me is eating at regular intervals and ensuring that there are carbs and some form of protein at every meal and snack.
Though we cannot control the winds, we can adjust the sails.
