When the temperature rises, we have to change the way we fuel our bodies. That’s because we want to avoid dehydration. It happens when you lose more fluid than what you're taking in.
According to the Mayo Clinic, anyone can become dehydrated. But young children, older adults and people with chronic illnesses are most at risk. And in this intense heat, we have to take extra care of ourselves.
"We need to be eating light meals, eating often, and we need to be replacing a lot of the water that we lose when we're sweating," says Registered Dietician Rebecca Scritchfield.
