Top 10 Hydrating Foods

It turns out you can eat your water.

"Produce contains high percentages of water as well as antioxidants and essential minerals," says Leslie Bonci, director of sports nutrition at the University of Pittsburgh's center for sports medicine.

You probably consume 20 percent of your fluids from food, and you can boost that percentage with highly saturated snacks.

Because they tend to be low in calorie density, these snacks also keep you satiated and can help you stay lean. Of course, every time you eat a meal you should also drink: Sip 16 ounces of water or another low-cal beverage. And for the ultimate water-rich snack, try one cup of chopped cucumber, carrots, radishes, and celery.
