Eat your H20

Drinking water is essential but you can also boost your H20 intake with food. The following list from Shape Magazine shows about how much water is in some of the things we eat.

A quick note. I don’t recommend eating Jello and drinking cranberry juice cocktail on a regular basis. Also, coffee and anything fast food are not great sources of nutrients.
