“Learn How to Stay Properly Hydrated to Keep Your Body Healthy”

     Staying hydrated is an essential part of staying healthy.  Water accounts for almost two- thirds of our body weight, and it enables the success of our most important body functions.  If you’re not drinking enough, you can quickly become dehydrated, which can lead to headaches, fatigue, and more serious issues.  Staying hydrated can help you stay energized, active, and healthy.  Most people know they need to drink in water hot weather or after exercising, but staying properly hydrated is important all year long and is just as important for the average person as it is for serious athletes.  For healthy hydration, the trick is understanding what to drink, how much is enough, and when an extra glass can do you good.
Healthy Hydration Choices
     Water, soda, sports drinks, fruit juices, coffee, and tea can all help you maintain healthy hydration; however, it is very important to remember that low-calorie or zero-calorie beverages are usually the best choice.  Sweetened beverages can be high in calories and low in nutrients.  While a sweetened drink is okay as an occasional part of your diet, too many sweetened drinks can lead to weight gain and other...
