Don’t Let Dehydration Get You Down

Dehydration may seem like a minor ailment, but it can be quite dangerous. In fact, millions of people worldwide—many of them infants and older adults—die of dehydration each year. Preventing dehydration sounds easy enough: consume plenty of fluids and foods high in water content, like fruits and vegetables. However, how much fluid do you really need? Determining your appropriate water intake is not an exact science, as much depends on age, physical condition, activity level, environment and individual physiology.

The best recommendation is to simply make a conscious effort to stay hydrated. In addition, make water your beverage of choice! Try drinking water with every meal and between meals. Take water breaks instead of coffee or tea breaks, and substitute sparkling water for alcohol.

Avoid These Foods When You’re Out to Eat

Though it may seem like an impossible feat, you can still maintain your diet while enjoying a meal out with friends and family. There are many foods full of excess fat and calories that can destroy your healthy diet. Steer clear of these foods while dining out:

  • Condiments such as salad dressings, cheese sauces, tartar sauce, gravy and guacamole

  • Butter and cheese

  • Fried foods such as chicken or french fries

  • Beverages such as regular soda, whole milk and various alcoholic drinks
