I've heard this time and time again. Americans don't drink enough water. Hunger can be a sign that you are just thirsty. So this week I began drinking a glass of water first before eating. It's amazing how much less I've snacked on!

I'm one of those people who have trouble getting the recommended 8 glasses of water a day, so before I eat anything I drink a glass, this helps me to fill up a bit before eating, so I don't over indulge, and anytime I feel like snacking I drink more water. This tip can be used for anything you like, ie: while you cook, before cleaning, after cleaning, any activity you do, begin it with a glass of water.194
