FILL UP FLUIDS
As temperatures start soaring, our body loses precious moisture through perspiration. Replace the fluids by drinking as much fluids as you can. Increase your water intake deliberately in summer. In addition to that, have a glass of coconut water or a glass of buttermilk mid-morning, at about 11 am and also post-lunch. In fact, thin buttermilk twice daily or low cal coconut water is the healthiest way to stay cool in summer.
