it is normal for body to crave for water after having a high protein or a fatty meal
User :   but this started last year so why when i stop eating them the cracinv stops
Doctor :   do you take only non veg food this happen? or does this happen when you taking other veg food items also?
User :   only when i eat none vegi foods when i ate the vegi food it does not happen
Doctor :  
Doctor :  
then it will be due to the protien intake
Doctor :  
when you take veg foods, the protien amount in that is not as much as compared to non veg foods
Doctor :  
this when getting digested will require extra water for enabling the digestion process
Doctor :  
how much water do you consume per day when having veg food and when having non veg food?
