Did you ever think about eating your water to help stay hydrated? I never really thought about it. I was happy to discover that I eat a lot of hydrating foods on a daily basis.
I have a book called The Water Secret: The Cellular Breakthrough to Look and Feel 10 Years Younger by Howard Murad, MD. Dr. Murad says that the water in foods stays in our bodies longer than the water we drink. His Pitcher of Health has fruits and vegetables as the foundation of our diet. He lists 75 fruits and vegetables to help you eat your water giving you more options to meet your eight servings per day.
Note: I have to admit, I have not read The Water Secret yet. I have read bits and pieces. It is one of those good resource books that I pull off the shelf and thumb through occasionally. When the time is right, it will be there for me to read. The book link above is my affiliate link so I will receive money if you buy the book from that link.
