Leafy greens makes me really thirsty!
Anyone else notice this?

When I have a salad for dinner or a green smoothie, I feel very thirsty for the next couple hours.

And usually, when I drink that much water, I am constantly peeing but with salad, the peeing frequency is much less...

I never noticed a corrolation; I'll have to pay more attention. I'm interested to hear what others say!

Leafy greens make me bloated and gassy (TMI, much?) but not thirsty. That's pretty interesting though!

Are you sure it's the greens? Maybe it's the stuff you put with your greens. Just for an example, if you put a really tangy/zesty dressing on your greens in your salad, I could see how that might make you thirsty. I don't know about the smoothie though -- what else do you put in it?

hmmm...the only thing the two have in common is the greens...

i use about a tablespoon of balsamic vinaigrette and feta cheese dressing mixed on my salad as well as nuts and cranberries. This is completely different from the smoothie where I use yogurt, some fruits, maybe chocolate syrup

lol about the gassy...i get some too but I always feel like its because the salad is clearing out my system...

Thirsty after drinking green smoothie
Yes, sparklegirl! I did not at first, but after drinking them almost daily (1c/day) I get very thirsty. Did you ever find out what causes this?
