It is very important to make sure you drink
plenty of fluids especially if it is hot out and you are
in the sun. If you are working out make sure there are hydration
stations near by so you can get a
drink. If you are with a group you can get a drink when you are
watching the others work out. Make sure
you know where to refill your water bottle and where you can take a
break. Many time when you feel
sick when you are sweating allot it is because you need to hydrate. Headaches can be caused by not
drinking enough fluids.
If you are going to be working or exercising in the heat you need to drink
before you start. Another
good thing to do in very hot climates is to use a cold wet towel
around you head and neck this will
cool you down. Cramps, headaches, muscle fatigue and light headedness
are just some of the symptoms of dehydration. Exertion, sun exposure, and high altitudes can contribute
to the bodies loss of vital
fluids and electrolytes.
You should also eat a good breakfast it is still considered the most
important meal of the day. There
is research now that eating a mixed breakfast of protein, fat and
carbohydrates are more likely to
manage their weight. People who have a busy day will have more energy
if they eat a good meal to start
the day. Eating healthy fat and fruits at breakfast will keep you from
having that rebound hunger. You
need a good carb, protein, good fat mix in the morning. Smoothies are
a great way to get what you need
and hydrate at the same time.
Even if you plan you meals for the day it is a good idea to have some
healthy snacks at the ready.
Snack bars and a glass of water will keep you going if you need to
skip a lunch. A box of energy or
health bars stashed in your car or office. Make sure to read the
contents of the food bar to make sure
they are not full of sugar or fat but healthy protein and vitamins.
Remember if you are not working
out all the time make sure to keep your carbohydrates to a minimum but
still drink plenty of water.
