We face mostly dehydration problem in summer, then why not to find the simple and convenient solution to stay fit and fine!

The most simple work is to eat and so its solution. Have your stomach filled with these berries.

  • Cherries - Always be ready to grab cherries whenever they are available fresh during summer season. They are very rich in antioxidants.

  • Nectarines -  The sweet & sour nectarines are necessary addition to your summer diet. The easiest way to identify the nectarine is the absence of fuzz on it. It's yellow flesh is a rich source of vitamin C.

  • Cantaloupe - Also known as Musk Melon, consists of about nearly 90% content as water, this refreshing fruit keeps you hydrated when thirst soars. Cantaloupe has ample of vitamin C and beta-carotene. In the body, beta-carotene can be converted to vitamin A, it helps to regulate the new skin cell's growth


  • Watermelon

If the dog days of summer are leaving you parched, be sure to bite into summer's quintessential fruit, which is made up of more than 90 percent water. Proper hydration is important to keep your joints well-lubricated and your metabolism humming along. But watermelon is so much more than H2O. A recent study in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry discovered that the amino acid L-citrulline, which is abundant in watermelon, can dampen muscle soreness in athletes.10

The fewer muscle injuries you experience, the quicker you'll be able to once again show some feats of strength in the gym. This picnic fave is also loaded with lycopene, an antioxidant compound that gives watermelon its signature blush and may help improve blood pressure numbers.11 It may also work to reduce sun damage your skin.12

Make This

Toss together watermelon cubes with wedges of tomato and sliced cucumber. Blend together some olive oil, basil, red-wine vinegar or lemon juice, and salt. Drizzle the mixture over the watermelon salad and garnish with feta cheese or goat cheese and chopped pistachios.


They might be blue, but when it comes to nutrition, there's nothing sad about these health bombs. For a mere 84 calories per cup, blueberries deliver 4 grams of belly-flattening fiber and a huge payload of anthocyanin antioxidants, chemicals responsible for the deep purple hue of the fruit.
Researchers in New Zealand determined that antioxidants in blueberries may help reduce muscle-cell damage brought about by oxidative stress.12 A separate animal study reported that an antioxidant in blueberries called pterostilbene may help your six-pack pursuit by limiting fat storage and increasing fat burning.13

Of interest, research suggests that cooking does not result in a significant drop in the antioxidant power of blueberries.14 If you can find them and don't mind the splurge, wild blueberries are especially chock-full of antioxidants.
