Eating Your Water

Are you one of those individuals who have a hard time consuming 8 eight ounce glasses of water per day? Did you know that you can eat your water? Most fruits and vegetables are packed with not only nutrients, but water as well, which can help you get those 64 ounces a day. When you eat your water you stay more hydrated because you are also consuming nutrients that help maintain the electrolyte levels in your body as well as keeping you hydrated longer. Check out these common fruits and veggies:

Cucumber: Water content: 96.7%

Celery: Water content: 95.4%

Tomatoes: Water content: 94.5%

Watermelon: Water content: 91.5%
