How to stay Hydrated Without Water

Water is not the only way to rehydrate.

Water is so important that our bodies are adept at squeezing fluid from everything we eat and drink. Even you have fluid restrictions or if you take medication that causes you to lose fluid, you can replace it by eating foods with high water content.
The USDA Food Composition Databases list 7,524 foods that contain water. Vegetables include: asparagus, beans, carrots, celery, collards, corn, kale, mushrooms, okra, onions, peas, all soups, and tomatoes. Fruits include apples, apricots, blackberries, blueberries, cherries, papayas, and grapefruit. Use the USDA Food Composition Database Nutrient Index search and use the results to plan healthy meals that meet your dietary needs.

The best way to stay healthy and hydrated is to eat a consistent, balanced diet that includes all the nutrients and fluids you need each day. You can download free Meal Planning Forms from the CoumadinComandments website on the Tools for Managing Your Health page.
