  • The Best Foods for Hydration

    Stephanie E - Jenny Craig
    • 1

    Is there anything better than a cold glass of water on a hot summer’s day? We think not. Water isn’t just a refreshing drink — it helps your body to function at its best. Every part of the body needs water to work, from your organs to your bones and joints. Water is naturally lost through breathing, perspiration and digestion, so it’s important to replenish it by eating and drinking foods and beverages with a high water content. 

    While everyone’s water needs differ — experts recommend aiming for at least 8 cups of water a day. During the warmer months and before, during and after exercise, you’ll want to increase your consumption.

    Staying properly hydrated may also give your weight loss efforts a boost. A recent study showed increased hydration may be linked to a decrease in energy consumption.1 In fact, research indicates that drinking water may slightly increase your metabolism2 — and it could help you feel fuller if you sip a glass before your next meal.3 That same feeling of fullness can also come from foods that are high in water content. 

    We’ve rounded up eight of the best foods for hydration that not only taste great but are also excellent sources of a variety of nutrients. In moderation, they’re great for weight loss — you’ll see them in meals from Jenny Craig or on our Fresh & Free Additions list. Enjoy!
