Although this infographic is small, it contains some pretty good common sense type of information. Do not eat or drink stuff that will cause you to be dehydrated during a heat wave. It also explains that meat takes up a lot of energy to digest. It suggests to eat fruits, vegetables, green herbs, and citrus fruits. It also suggests water, green-tea, and 150 grams of red wine. I was surprised to see red wine on the list of what to drink because alcohol actually dehydrates the body. The infographic also suggests not to drink coffee during a heat wave because of the dehydrating nature that caffeine has. There you go, What to Eat and What Not to Eat During a Heat Wave.
