Tips for Staying Well Hydrated

February 12, 2019 Category :Healthy Advocacy 0

  • Have a beverage with every meal and snack.
  • Choose beverages that you enjoy. Several studies show that children and adults consume about 45 percent to 50 percent more liquid when it’s flavored vs. plain water.
  • Eat more fruits and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables tend to have high water content, which makes them a great option for helping you meet your hydration needs.
  • Don’t exclusively rely on thirst. Sometimes thirst is not a reliable measure of hydration because of medications or other health conditions. Keep a water bottle or beverage at your desk, in your car, in your bag or wherever you will be reminded to drink.
  • Keep beverages at moderate temperature. Fluids served at moderate temperatures — temperatures that are neither hot nor cold — tend to be consumed in greater volumes.
  • Follow the American College of Sports Medicine recommendations for fluid intake before, during and after physical activity
  • Choose your beverage that fit your activity level and lifestyle. If you are watching your calorie intake, consider choosing a low-calorie beverage or create your own refreshing light beverages. Also be aware of the calorie content of the beverages you drink.
