    Re: Thirsty!!

    Hey! I have the same problem!!!

    I went to the doctors and they told me that the salt in the air dehydrates the body!! They said we have to drink more water when near the sea or we will become really dehydrated!

    I have been drinking loads recently and it's worked! I feel much better now and don't need to keep taking breaks in between waves!

    Give it a try surferbabe, tell me how it goess!

    One of the symptoms of diabetes is excessive thirst. Just saying.

    Re: Thirsty!!

    JK2000,

    I think you may have a point with this!

    My Granddad is a fisherman and he suffers from the same thing. He's out on the sea a lot and gets very dehydrated, he was checked for Diabetes as we also heard that that was a symptom but he got the all clear.

    I'll tell him about this and get him a few extra bottles of water for his trips!

    Thanks a lot.

    What's even better than drinking water is eating water type foods.

    Re: Thirsty!!

    Cucumbers, celery, oranges, apples, watermelon, any fruit or veggie that contains a lot of water. I believe it's better to eat the wet foods because I think our bodies absorb the the liquid better when it's digested with a food. At least that's what I've found with my body.

    ETA: Fruit juices don't count as there is too much sugar in them and you need that fiber that the fruit provides.

    Re: Thirsty!!

    Hi melons and celery have diuretic properties and may cause a bit more water loss in my opinion. It can be used when there is a bit of edema with good result, but I don't think you are trying to lose more. Also celery has some natural high amounts of salt in it. I would drink plenty of water and also definately get a blood sugar check just in case. The machines at the pharmacy for this purpose cost very little really.

    If a man weighs about 150 then he needs about 9-10 glasses of water at least even when not surfing and maybe and extra glass or more when he is. If thirsty I would use some water to quench the thirst. Have a nice day!

    Re: Thirsty!!

    The reason I mentioned the wet foods is because for some reason I don't seem to absorb my drinking water like I should and depend on the foods to keep me hydrated. I didn't know that about the diretic effect of celery. So far none of the foods I've eaten seem to have that effect on me...Thank goodness.
    I do add things to my drinking water that seems to help, like powdered greens.
    Just throwing it out there.

    Re: Thirsty!!

    Hi persimmon seems to help retain some fluid in my opinion for whatever unknown reason, perhaps because it has a gel like quality. Okra might do that too. However I would not go overboard with these for too long either, since they have potential to increase mucus production. A good variety of food is useful for health, according to a source I respect. Have a nice day!

    OT. I just heard that pomegranate has more antioxidents in it than red wine. I hate the taste of wine, so that's good news to me.

    Re: Thirsty!!

    Hi I would use fresh juices instead of bottled. The bottled beverages have been heated to destroy bacteria and at the same time the heat destroys some of the antioxidant properties according to some sources.

    Alcohol is bad for the liver and other organs anyway and I suspect most of the antioxidant properties of wine are in the original food anyway... the grapes.

    Fresh grape juice from a juicer tastes excellent and fresh pomegranites taste good too!

    Re: Thirsty!!

    I agree that bottled juice is not good. Do you have a juicer?
