Ways to decrease Dehydration


Dehydration is common during Summers. It is a condition when your body does not have as much water and fluids as it should have. It can be mild, moderate, or severe based on how much of the body's fluid is lost or not replenished. When it is severe, dehydration is a life-threatening emergency. Dehydration can be caused by losing too much fluid, not drinking enough water.

Few things you can do to decrease dehydration:

1. Mix together a quarter teaspoon of salt, two teaspoons of lemon juice and three teaspoon of sugar in a cup of water, and drink this.

2. Make an infusion of half a nutmeg in two cups of water. Mix a teaspoon of this infusion in a cup of fresh coconut water. Drink this thrice a day.

3. Mix a teaspoon of lemon juice in a glass of coconut water. Drink this thrice a day.

4. Even when you are healthy, drink plenty of fluids every day. Drink more when the weather is hot or when you are exercising.

5. Carefully monitor someone who is ill, especially an infant, child, or older adult. If you believe that the person is getting dehydrated, call your health care provider before the person becomes dehydrated.

6. Drinking fluids is usually enough for mild dehydration. It is better to drink small amounts of fluid often instead of trying to force large amounts of fluid at one time. Drinking too much fluid at once can bring on more vomiting.

Yes, no mistake about it, I did put cocoa and weight loss in the same sentence.  Cocoa is the non-fat product of cocoa liquor also known as 'crème de cacao'. Now, when you see 'liquor' you may say there's Alcohol in it!

Add Intensity To Your Muscle Building Workout

One of the biggest difficulties facing bodybuilders is how can they be sure that all muscle fibers have been recruited and exhausted during a given exercise and it is only by achieving this that muscle gains can be maximized.

Few techniques that will help to increase your muscle growth:

Increase resistance
Increasing the weight lifted in meaningful increments ensures the muscle is pushed beyond its previous point of failure thus maintaining the muscle building process. Aim to increase the weight when you reach six to eight reps and failure does not occur.

Change the exercise
To achieve maximal gains, all muscle fibers in a body part must be trained. Introducing a new exercise will stimulate growth.

Reduce rest intervals
Giving the muscles less time to recover before exposing them to further work has the effect of increasing intensity.

Introduce supersets
This involves performing two exercises for the same muscle group without a rest interval. This means you have to utilize different muscle fi…
