Hydration💦💧💦💧 with the summer’s heat, how do you keep your body functioning? water is necessary for b****y functions, transporting nutrients and oxygen to all cells and transporting waste products away for excretion. on top of that, it is refreshing, sugar-free, and calorie-free! however, in the summer most individuals underestimate the amount of water/fluid their body needs. in areas, where temperatures reach the 90’s, it is nearly impossible to not sweat. when we sweat we are excreting fluid our body would be using for other functions. so, then what happens? we get dehydrated. dehydration is a major issue and can lead to serious health consequences.
so, how do we prevent dehydration? the recommended dietary allowance is a minimum of 6 cups. for example, if you have increased your protein intake, spend a lot of time in the sun, or exercise, your needs will be higher. it is necessary to consistently hydrate throughout the day, and not just at one time. you might be thinking that this means chugging plain, boring water until you have had enough. but guess what, there are so many ways to hydrate that you will enjoy! ⬇️⬇️⬇️
add some fruits (watermelon, strawberry, mint, lemon) to water and letting it sit in the fridge overnight
seltzer water is flavorful, without any of the sugar that soda has (plus: all the carbonation also helps with digestion)
freeze some blended fruits and water in ice containers and put them in your water
if you can’t keep away from juices, pour half a cup and fill the rest with water
coconut water! 🥥
on top of that, you can eat your way to hydration! try some pineapple, watermelons, cucumbers, cantaloupes, or grapefruit! 🍍🍉🍓🥒
choose whichever way you prefer, just make sure you stay hydrated and refreshed during these hot summer days. ☀️💦
