Think Your Drink.   Am I thirsty? Choose water to stay hydrated without adding extra calories. Use tap water and ice cubes to save money. Add flavor by adding fruit or cucumber slices. Water is the best way to hydrate during and after exercise. The easiest way to tell if you are dehydrated is by the color of your urine. It should be light yellow or clear within a couple of hours after exercise. If it is dark yellow, you need more hydration.
