You bet – Salt.
Our bodies produce histamines when we are dehydrated and when we are hungry.
When we are not mindful, we can’t tell the difference if we are hungry or thirsty.
And snack food and fast food folks know it, that’s why they “salt it up”. Since salt helps retain water in our bodies, eating snack food and fast food muffles our urge to drink water by the histamine suppression of salt intake, and it results in the calories that are eaten, instead of the water we were supposed to drink
We’re not saying to not eat fast food or snack food, just knowing the difference if you are hungry or thirsty, by what you have recently eaten or drank – is the important message.
