A sensation of thirst is the first initial sign that the body is on its way to becoming dehydrated. Other signs include:

  • Headache

  • Fatigue

  • Concentrated and decreased urine

  • Weight loss

  • Increased heart rate and low blood pressure

  • Dry mouth and eyes

  • Constipation

  • Lack of coordination

  • Muscle cramps

  • Extreme cases of dehydration will cause weakness, trembling and a lack of mental clarity.

 

  •  

We need water.

Daily water needs can be met through other means besides the consumption of plain water.

Many foods possess hydrating properties that work to our benefit if integrated into the daily diet; plus they offer nutrients as well. It is possible to consume anywhere from 16 to 21 ounces of water if a diet is balanced and contains hydrating foods.

Some of the most hydrating foods are:

 

  • Peaches (fresh, frozen or canned in natural juice)

  • Grapes

  • All types of melon

  • Citrus fruits

  • Strawberries

  • Cucumbers

  • Green beans

  • Broccoli

  • Celery

  • Eggplant

  • Cottage cheese

  • Broth based soups

  • Yogurt

  • Milk

  • Coffee/Tea

  • Mixed greens

  • Tomatoes

  • Oatmeal
