Did you know that by the time you feel thirsty your body is already dehydrated? During the hot summer months your body loses more and more fluids.
Many people make the mistake of confusing feelings of hunger for thirst. Make sure to get at least eight cups of fluids into your body each day, especially during these hot summer months.
Keep in mind that coffee or any other caffeinated or alcoholic drink don't count towards the total. Sorry, but these are dehydrating to your body.
It doesn’t mean you can’t drink them, it just means you will actually need an extra cup of fluid for every caffeinated or alcoholic beverage that you consume. Stay hydrated and cool down with these refreshing summer drinks:
