Eat your way to hydration in Clapham

Posted by Ben Simpkins on August 14, 2017

A simple post today but our personal training clients are sick to death of us telling them to drink more water, it is pretty much all we go on about to try and get them into the habit of drinking enough water to ensure they are fully hydrated and to help their body function at its maximum efficiency.

See without enough water in your system you will obviously become dehydrated but that can lead to other issues like tiredness, headaches, dizziness, cravings for sugar and reduce the function of your cells.

In case you didn’t know we are made up of around 60% water so if the body is dehydrated alarms bells go off, so instead of us going on about drinking more fluids, I thought we could give you some ways to eat your water. You can probably guess what some of them are but we will give you a few surprise ones too.

If you can bear drinking more and want to know how much you should be having then take a look at our other blog post on How to improve your hydration and drink more.

Cucumber*
Leafy green vegetables*
Watermelon*
Tomato sauce (will vary on brand though)
Noodle soups*
Courgette*
Pepper
Pear
Ice lollies (don’t use too many of these though!)
Mango & Pineapple (again don’t have too many of these)
Grapefruit*
Berries*
Celery *
Spinach *
Grapes*

A little obvious but we stuck a little * next to the ones you should primarily focus on and use the other ones sparingly. Try to add these to your diet where possible to help boost your hydration levels.
