Self-tutoring about cues: the tutor looks into possible confusion between hunger and thirst.
Apparently, feeling thirsty but thinking it means hunger, really happens.
The advice I’ve read to prevent hazard from the confusion:
- Drink water throughout the day. Then, you might not develop thirst, since you’ll prevent it.
- If you feel hungry, but haven’t drunk water in a while, drink some water first, then wait. If the hunger persists, and you indeed know you’re awhile since eating, likely you really are hungry.
