This Food Is as Hydrating as a Glass of Water

This food can be more hydrating than a glass of water. But if you're dehydrated, still rely on water to feel better.

Why drink your electrolytes when you can eat them?

So you’re trying to stay hydrated this summer. Whether you’re reading this because you need a good way to soak up some water after a long run or trying to replenish your stores after a particularly dehydrating evening (no judgment), eating food to fight dehydration might sound more appealing than chugging water.
Don’t get this wrong — the best way to stay hydrated is to drink plain water or another beverage that has electrolytes. But if you’ve had your fill of water and still feel dehydrated, certain types of food could do the trick.

One food in particular is especially hydrating: watermelon. The fruit is made up of 92 percent water and 6 percent sugar.

To equal a glass, or 16 ounces by volume, of water, you’d have to consume a little over that volume of watermelon. If you ate 17.6 ounces by volume of watermelon, you’d have consumed an entire glass of water.
Watermelon is good for more than just staying hydrated. It has other nutrients such as fiber and vitamin A. Eating more watermelon is good for your skin, too, helping it to stay hydrated and nourished. Add these other foods to your plate to help support your skin this summer, too.
