What Are You Drinking?

Did you know that some sugar cravings are your body’s way of saying its thirsty?   According to Dr. Joan Kent, “Dehydration can start with as little as a 1.5% drop in the body’s water. The average level is around 60%. One of the many problems’ dehydration can cause a craving for sugar. ” Before you reach for that candy bar, drink a glass of water and wait 5-10 minutes to see if you still have the desire to eat a sugary snack.  It might also be a good idea to watch your caffeine intake, especially if you add cream and sugar.  I am raising my hand. Too much caffeine can mimic a blood sugar crash.  Your safest bet is to drink more water.  How much should you drink? Start with 64 ounces and add 12 ounces for every 30 minutes of physical activity. Then work up to your body weight.
