Do’s and Don'ts

Do check the colour of your urine while you fly, looking like apple juice BAD, looking like  
lemonade GOOD.

Do drink plenty of water before, during and after exercise particularly if you are a flyer, drink extra.

Do you find it hard to remember to drink water? Schedule it! See iPhone app store for a free  
reminder app.

Don’t drink high acid high sugar concentrated juices ACIDITY leads to dehydration.

Don’t drink or at least minimise the amount of caffeinated drinks you consume, they lead to acidity.

Don’t forget to carry your own non BPA water bottle with filter with you for the best quality water  
at all times.

Nutrition for Hydration

Of the 3 major food types (Carbohydrates, Protein and  
Fat) Carbohydrates as the name suggests are the most  
hydrating. While Dr Atkins may be turning in his grave,  
if all else fails a carbohydrate rich meal may help you  
stay hydrated if your options are limited.
