I drink water mostly, but when I get really dehydrated I will reach for a carton of unsweetened coconut water. Full of electrolytes we need and no carbs like so many replacement drinks.

Is it that green coconut water?

I don't know. I know that all the water from coconut is clear. Coconut milk comes from "milking" the actual meat from ripe coconuts.

Unsweetened coconut water has 15g of carbs. I'm okay with that, they are natural ones not added sugar ones. It doesn't really taste sweet, so it is not a "crave" drink, but a utility drink for my family.

I try to stay out of the heat through the daytime,when its the hottest. Though I do drink water,G2 gatorade and milk. If I do have to step outside for a while I try to stay in the shade when possible. Heat causes light headedness alot when I am outside in the sunshine.

I am with Kirla. 8 glasses is a minimum then go from there. Really soda is not the same. Your body needs water. If you drink an icy 16.9 bottle of water then its only 4 of those. Yet in this heat I drink one of those down all at once and slow down on my second bottle.

since I am almost on dialysis, I drink water only (been able to stave dialysis off for nearly 2 yrs).

I carry a Brita water filter bottle and keep sipping on that every few minutes. I live in Las Vegas, a hot & dry climate so I don't sweat at all as the water evaporates as soon as it leaves my body. When I left for Milwaukee last Tues, the temp there was 108 degrees.

I drink ice cold bottled water all day- 4-5 16 oz…water always makes me feel so much better when I drink a lot of it. Definitely keeps me hydrated!!

I drink tons of iced herbal tea! My favorite is a blend of mint and chamomile. The mint makes it especially cooling.
