What to eat and drink – and what to avoid – during a heat wave Wine News

HEatwaves can be quite difficult to navigate in terms of food. Once the initial joy of finally seeing some sun wears off, many experience a loss of appetite that might leave you feeling uncomfortable during the warmer temperatures.

We’ve compiled a list of some foods to help you get through this heatwave with ease, and some to avoid.

Let’s get rid of the obvious first: Make sure you drink plenty of water when it’s hot, to make up for the fluids lost through extra sweating.

To avoid dehydration (when your body loses more water than it takes in), drinking water can be crucial, even when the weather is not hot, as fluids carry nutrients to your cells and drain away bacteria in your bladder. Symptoms of dehydration include thirst, dizziness, fatigue, and dryness of the mouth, lips, and eyes.

As well as during heat waves, drinking plenty of water can help recovery from training, cure hangovers, and stay hydrated during exercise.

Water is not only healthy, but it is also one of the cheapest options: according to the NHS, it is calorie-free and contains no sugars that can damage teeth. If you can’t stand still water, try sparkling or add a slice of lemon or lime to spice it up. Otherwise, add squash or fruit juice. Hydration tablets can also be a quick fix for replacing water and essential vitamins when you need them most.
