How To Hydrate, Without Water
Celery. This crunchy snack is full of water, rich in fiber, and packed with potassium, which helps the body retain the water.
Cucumber. This green vegetable has more water content than any other fruit and vegetables. Juice it or eat it whole for delicious hydration.
Skim Milk. It has a natural balance of sodium, carbohydrates, and protein, which helps the body retain fluid.
Coconut Water. There’s good reason coconut water has become so popular! It not only hydrates, it’s also rich in potassium and naturally sweet too.
Watermelon Water. It’s become a recent industry favorite because of its electrolytes, salt, calcium, and magnesium, all of which are a definite plus both pre and post exercise.
