Did you know some foods can make the summer heat even harder to handle? Let's find out which ones.
Spicy foods can raise your body temperature and make you feel hotter. Limit these during peak summer.
High protein foods can increase metabolic heat and warm your body. Opt for lighter proteins like fish.
Sugary drinks can lead to dehydration. Hydrate with water, unsweetened iced tea, or infused water instead.
