Wash Away Cravings!

This Sparked Me!

Do you ever want to keep eating after you have finished a meal? I sure do! To combat that, I drink a full 8 oz glass of water after meals. It makes me feel more full, washes away the lingering (tempting) flavors in my mouth, and helps me meet my water quota for the day.

    What a great idea thank you for sharing. I am going to try this tonight.

    I have found that drinking a cup of hot tea will help chase away that "I am still hungry" feeling! emoticon

    I never thought of drinking water after eating. I'll give it a try. Cleaning your teeth right after you eat also helps by getting rid of the lingering food tastes. Thanks.

    That is a great idea, i have found that for me that this doesn't work for me as well. Sometimes I have to drink a protein shake with non-fat milk. That really fills you up and gives you a boost of protein.
