Beating The Heat

Summer is in full swing at this point and it is getting hot! With this heat comes dehydration at a much faster rate, spelling trouble for all who fall into it's grasp. You may not have even known that it had a grasp. well guess what...it does and it is bad news. On average your body sweats out about 16 oz. of water a day without exertion. With exercise, you may sweat up to a gallon. This means that drinking lots of water and maintaining a Healthy level of salt (electrolytes) is not an option, it is a requirement. I recommend a minimum of a gallon a day in H2O and plenty of fruits to help sustainability in water retention(the good kind). If you don't listen and you find yourself dehydrated, you will recognize the following symptoms as your sign:Dry mouth, thirst, dizziness, confusion, headache, blurred vision, muscle cramping, or the feeling of losing conciseness. The long and short, stay hydrated because it's not fun when you are not! Now let's start this week off right!
