Dr Oz's Hydration Handbook

Taken from Dr Oz's Hydration Handbook

i think we all will benefit from some simple steps to keep ourselves healthy and wealthy (since we will be cutting down on trips to the doctor), and I really like the part on how we should drink 1 cup of water for every cup of coffee consumed.

Hydration Helpers:
  1. Know When to Drink More When you do something that raises your heart rate, like exercising, you lose water. Counteract this loss by drinking an 8-oz glass of water per hour of activity.
  2. Drink 1 for 1 Caffeine dehydrates your body. For every cup of coffee or tea you drink, have 1 glass of water too.
  3. Get Your Water From Food Many fruits and vegetables are rich in water – the juicer, the better. Watermelon, papaya, cucumber and celery are great choices because they have water, sodium and potassium, which are all needed to prevent dehydration.
