4. Vigorous Exercise
When working out strenuously, sweating and muscle cramps are signs of dehydration. Even running with your dog or gardening can cause a loss of fluid. Remember to drink when it’s hot outside and you are sweating.
3. Salty Popcorn
Popcorn is low in calories, so a lot of people will eat this instead of sweets. But if it’s salted and you eat the whole bag, make sure you are drinking water with your popcorn treat.
2. Sugary Soft Drinks
Sugar creates acid in the body, which strains the kidneys and creates a loss of fluid.
1. High Protein Diets
Many may not realize it, but that high protein diet that is so popular can also be dehydrating. Studies showed the higher protein diets concentrated the kidney’s urine and caused a loss of fluid.
Losing water daily can zap your energy, just from normal breathing, sweating and urinating, so be sure to drink more water and avoid overdoing the things listed above.Related: 8 Signs You Are Dehydrated
