The body loses water through breathing, sweating, and digestion, which is why it’s important to rehydrate by drinking and eating foods that contain water.
Most people who are in good physical health get enough fluids by drinking water and other beverages when they’re thirsty, and also by drinking a beverage at mealtime.
If you’re not sure about your hydration level, look at your urine. If it’s clear, you’re in good shape. If it’s dark, you’re probably dehydrated.
