Top ten hydrating foods

Eating a healthy diet is not enough for maintaining overall good health. Water is just as important as food. In fact, water is probably even more important than food. Did you know that we could survive without food for more than 1 month, but we couldn’t live without water for more than 3 (or maybe 4) days? That’s why everyone should make sure that they drink enough water. Especially for those of us surviving in this summer’s desert heat. We need to drink at least 2 L of water a day, but drinking 3 or 4 L is even better. Eating lots of hydrating fruits is another great way to hydrate your body and get energized!
