Water content: 92%
Maybe it comes as no surprise that soups and broths are found in our hydrating foods list, but are you surprised to find out that approximately a 240-gram chicken broth serving is almost fully made of water? This amount supplies a good part of your daily water needs.
Plus, when you tend to consume soups and broths regularly, you may notice a belly fat reduction, as well as some minus pounds on the scale.
Numerous studies have found that those who are used to eating soup before the main course of any meal, consume fewer calories and, as a result, they will get a lower daily calorie intake.
In fact, one study found that those who ate about 2 low-calorie soup servings daily lost approximately 50 percent more weight than those who actually ate the same number of calories, but those calories came from snack foods, not soups.
Boost your chicken soup with lots of carrots, mushrooms, broccoli, onions, and tomatoes!

When consumed regularly, zucchini can provide endless benefits. Apart from giving us good amounts of water (a 124-gram zucchini serving has approximately 94 percent water, providing one gram of fiber), zucchini can do wonders for our health.
From boosting digestive health, therefore keeping your weight in check, to slowing the aging process, lowering blood sugar levels, supporting heart health, improving eyesight, and acting like an energizer, zucchini looks into almost all health benefits.
Plus, one cup of chopped zucchini contains approximately 35 percent of your daily needs for Vitamin C, helping your immune system too to fight off colds.
You can add zucchini to your diet as a side dish or simply cut it into strips in order to create “healthier noodles.”
