According to the old rule of thumb, you're supposed to drink eight glasses of water per day (and some experts recommend even more). That can seem like a daunting task on some days if you don’t like to drink water, but here's the catch: you don't have to drink 64 ounces of water alone. All fluids count toward your daily intake, not just plain old boring H20. Water is best, but drinking liquids like milk, tea and juice can contribute to your total.
You can also absorb water through food because many fruits and vegetables contain high water contents.
Here are some fruits to incorporate into your diet: watermelon, strawberries, grapefruit, cantaloupe, peaches, pineapple, oranges and raspberries.
Vegetables might include cucumbers, iceberg lettuce, celery, radishes, tomatoes, green peppers, cauliflower, spinach, broccoli and baby carrots.
