Jolanta Langauer, a nutritionist and non-drug recovery specialist, listed suitable foods and drinks to eat in the heat. The expert called the observance of the water balance especially important.
“In the heat, we lose a lot of fluid, so first of all, you should pay attention to the drinking regimen. It is desirable that ordinary water enter the body, because it is it that gives us strength and guarantees the right balance. It is she who is necessary for all biochemical reactions in the body, ”said the nutritionist. She warned that other drinks, especially soft drinks, were high in sugar and fructose, including in the form of syrups.
Langauer advised drinking water at room temperature. “When we drink cold water, our body spends a lot of energy trying to bring it to the optimal temperature for all processes to take place,” the nutritionist explained.
When it comes to food, watery and seasonal vegetables and cold soups are the best choices. “But, of course, we should also not forget about the usual, familiar food, which is rich in microelements and is nutritionally dense. We don’t eat much of this food, but it gives us satiety. In this case, we are talking about fish, meat, poultry, eggs, and so on,” Langauer explained.
