How to avoid summer dehydration

No matter what your plans are this summer, you won't want to miss any of them. Combating the toll that heat and sun can have on your body will keep you healthy and active all summer long. Apply these few tips and you will have an enjoyable summer!

Drink lots of water! Doctors say that by the time you feel thirsty, you are already dehydrated. So just keep drinking water. It contains no calories and is great for your health in other ways. A good trigger to remind you to drink is every time the phone rings, then drink another glass.

All natural juice without added sugar not only provides hydration but also important nutrients to keep you functioning while being active in hot weather.

Limit you caffeine consumption because caffeine sucks the moisture out of you. On hot days, avoid it as much as possible.

Eat lots of watermelons this summer; they are 92 percent water. Fruits and vegetables are easy to digest and often high in water content, so salads and other dishes rich in seasonal produce will keep you feeling light and hydrated.
