Home All Updates (206) Hydration During Sum

Hydration During Summers!! Our bodies are 60% water by weight, and proper hydration is absolutely essential for our overall health. After all, the water we consume optimizes blood pressure, regulates body temperature, lubricates joints, moves waste out of the body, and aids in digestion. And with increased summer temperatures and outdoor activities comes increased water loss—through sweating and evaporation—as your body works to stay cool. Recommendations for water vary depending on weight, age, and activity level but an easy one to remember is 8x8, or 8 glasses of 8 ounces (30ml) of water each day. Whether you prefer limes, lemons, oranges, berries, or cucumbers, infusing your water with fresh fruit can make for a refreshing and spa-like beverage, without any added artificial sweeteners or preservatives. Yes, juices, milk, and herbal teas can all help hydrate your body—even caffeinated drinks (in moderation) can provide you with much-needed water. However, water is what your body is really craving, so you might as well go straight to the source. Sticking with H2O will help you skip the unnecessary sugars, additives, and caffeine found in other drinks. The good news is that only 70-80% of your daily hydration needs to come from water; 20-30% should actually come from food! All whole fruits and vegetables contain some amount of water, but munch on these top picks for maximum benefit: 97% water: Cucumbers 96% water: Celery 95% water: Tomatoes, radishes 93% water: Red, yellow, green bell peppers 92% water: Cauliflower, watermelon 91% water: Spinach, strawberries, broccoli 90% water: Grapefruit Water is truly the elixir of life. As you experience all the wonderful milestones of summer, remember to drink plenty of water and eat a diet rich in hydrating whole fruits and vegetables to keep you going strong all summer long. Your body (and mind) will thank you! For more details visit #summerhydration #bestdieticianinhyderabad
