We've all heard about the benefits of drinking plenty of fluids to stay cool, and experts said what you put into your body can affect how well you handle the heat.
In fact, drinking water is very important, however, drinking too much of it can rid your body of important nutrients like sodium and electrolytes, according to the Mayo Clinic.
So, experts advise people to avoid overdoing it, and definitely avoid drinking alcohol and sodas since both of those can lead to dehydration, if that's all you're drinking.
As far as food is concerned, food experts said all the protein-rich summer favorites like hamburgers and hot dogs are harder to digest and create even more body heat.
A good alternative are fruits, vegetables and even bread.
