You really do need to drink more water when you are obese compared to “average” size person.
You have more water in your body and it needs to be replenished. Not only will your body work more efficiently it is good for digestion.
I have often found that I think I am hungry when really I am just thirsty. Would not be uncommon for me to chug 2 cups of cold milk to quench thirst when a glass of water would do the trick.
I am very careful about what I drink. I will only drink water and milk- occasionally juice with soda water.
NEVER diet drinks! I have foudn that Crystal lite, etc make me feel like crap. I also suspect that it may be f’ing up my insulin levels- and my body thinks I am ingesting sugar.
I have no proof- just a hunch- what do you think?
I try and drink AT least 8 glasses of water a day. You can in fact drink too much water so be careful.
