7 Things That Make You Think You're Hungry
Posted April 10th, 2014 @ 5:02am



Believe it or not, the next time you feel "hungry" may not need to eat food. Our brain can often trick us into thinking we're hungry, when it's actually something else that's triggering the need.

According to Women's Health, here are 7 THINGS THAT MAKE YOU THINK YOU'RE HUNGRY:


1. You're Dehydrated: Skimping on water can make you confuse thirst for hunger.

2. You're Constantly Looking at Pictures of Food on the Internet:  A study found that seeing images of crazy-delicious food activates the brain's reward center and can cause you to overeat.

3. You're Not Getting Enough Sleep: Sleep deprivation makes food look extra appetizing, causing you to feel hungrier and reach for larger portions than normal.
