Use Water-Packed Foods
We’re all guilty of neglecting our water intake. But the human body is about 60 percent water. So water is absolutely essential for our bodies to function normally. Drinking water and other fluids throughout the day can help you stay hydrated. But foods with a high water content can also be key to replenishing the water that is lost naturally from sweating, going to the bathroom, and even breathing. Staying hydrated keeps your organs working properly, regulates your body temperature, removes waste and impurities, and promotes good digestion. Many foods that feature heavily in a Japanese diet, including cucumbers, lettuce, watercress, and broth, are loaded with water and lots of other nutrients that help you replenish your body’s fluids. These foods are low-calorie, filling, and nutrient-rich.
