The peak of summer is at hand and everyone’s busy looking for ways to beat the heat, with most things except the list of top hydrating foods sorted.

Scarf: Check
Leave in conditioner: Check
Face wipes: Check
Sunglasses: Check
Deodorant: Check
Water bottle: Check

And congratulations, you are… not ready to face the summers!

Here’s why:

Are you trying to beat the heat by drinking high energy drinks (read: gulping sugar) and relying on those ice creams and candies to keep you cool? If yes, then you need to reconsider your decision.

There’s a reason why you get top hydrating foods like watermelons, muskmelons, mangoes, etc. in summer.

No you don’t eat them occasionally as desserts.
No you don’t even ditch mangoes because some aunty told you that pimples ho jaenge.
No you don’t eat 2 pieces of cucumber at lunch and think aj ka salad hogya!

These fruits are amongst the top hydrating foods and not only quench your thirst, but also loaded with nutrients. The fact that they have high water content, they also keep you feeling full for longer.

They save yourself from consuming those extra calories.
