▫️ FOOD & DRINKS

After a first part of the summer where temperatures were seasonal or even lower, the thermometer is now soaring, with temperatures reaching over 40° in places in the south. The most important thing to do is stay hydrated. Because when it’s very hot, you need to drink more, to compensate for the water you lose through sweating. However, you should not drink too much either.

The right solution? Drink a little more water than usual and compensate by eating foods that contain a lot of water. Here is the list of the most hydrating foods:

  • Cucumber (97% water)
  • Lettuce (95.8% water)
  • Tomato (94.6% water)
  • Courgette (94.1% water)
  • Strawberry (91.6% water)
  • Melon (91.1% water)
  • Watermelon (91.1% water)
  • Grapefruit (89.8% water)
  • Lemon (89.2% water)
  • Dairy products (about 80% water)
