Hi, I'm JJ Virgin, Nutrition and Fitness Expert of jjvirgin.com, and I'm here today to talk to you about how to prevent heat exhaustion with food. Now, I got to tell you that even mild dehydration, one, two percent can raise stress hormone and slow down fat burning. It doesn't take much to start getting dehydrated and that can set you up for heat exhaustion. You can get well-hydrated both from the fluids that you drink, but also from the foods that you eat. You may have not known that. So, I'm going to show you some of the things you should be incorporating into your diet and specifically, I'm going to focus on foods that contain a lot of those electrolyte minerals, calcium, magnesium and most of all, potassium. So, the potassium-rich foods, we've all heard about bananas, but what you might have not known about is watermelon's another one and this is great because watermelon it's also high in water. And we do get a lot of our fluid intake from eating the foods like fruits and vegetables that are higher in water content. Now, another thing that you should be adding in is a great green drink because this of course is also rich in potassium. One that's incredible for electrolytes, a great replenishing fluid is to drink coconut water. This is great to be doing while you're training and after you're training. You can also add some Emergen-C; Emergen-C is rich in electrolytes into your water, again, while you're training and after you're training. And when you're drinking water, cool it down a little bit. This will help you cool down too. So, never put a plastic bottle into the freezer and then drink it as a defrost by the way because that can get those salicylic leach into the water, rather take a nice stainless steel water bottle, throw in some water and a lot of ice so that it will cool you down as well as you're drinking it. I'm JJ Virgin of jjvirgin.com, and that's how to use fluids to help you handle heat exhaustion.
