Importance of hydration, what is the big deal?

Dehydration is a big issue after surgery, as small amounts taken frequently are needed to make up 8-10 glasses of water needed each day to keep you firing on all cylinders.

False Hunger

Left unchecked, advanced dehydration will lead to FALSE HUNGER signals being sent.
This is a survival mechanism – the body’s trick to get you to eat more in the hope that the food you eat will provide the necessary water your body needs to keep functioning properly.

Drink at least 8 glasses

So – if you are hungry all the time, try increasing water (away from meals) and also increase your protein intake – both will help regain balance. 

Dehydration could also be your problem if you are feeling simply drained and exhausted too.

70-75% of Australians are dehydrated

Our dehydration signals are quite weak as opposed to our hunger signals where we eat at the slight feeling of being hungry. In fact, statistics suggest up to 70-75 per cent of us Australians are dehydrated at any point in time. 

Without adequate hydration, your efforts to lose weight can stall.
