Why you should EAT water, not drink it - If you're obsessed with rehydrating, drop that bottle and reach for the fruit and veg! ‘Healthy hydration is about the water you hold in the body, not the water you drink that passes straight through,’ says Dr Howard Murad, associate clinic professor of medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles, and author of The Water Secret.
Drinking too much water can, he says, actually deplete your body of vitamins and minerals if they are flushed out of the body too quickly. ‘There’s nothing wrong with drinking water, but if we don’t improve the capacity to get it into our cells and keep it there, it goes straight into the toilet without doing us any good,’ he says. ‘You can drink eight glasses of water - and while that is still a way of putting water into your body, it could mean eight trips to the bathroom without it actually reaching your cells.’ He warns that puffy eyes, swollen ankles and a bloated stomach are signs of a body that is not handling water efficiently.
‘It floats between our cells, ageing us and making us feel fat and sluggish.’ However, the water you eat is different. This is because the water in food is surrounded by other molecules that help it get into our cells more easily, and ensure it stays in our system for long enough to be put to good use. ‘When we eat water-rich foods, we absorb water more slowly because it is trapped in the structure of these foods,’ says Dr Murad. ‘That slow absorption means the water in food stays in our bodies longer, and brings a multitude of additional benefits.’ In fact, studies show that fruit and vegetables can hydrate the body twice as effectively as a glass of water.
