Fatigue, dizziness and crankiness are the telltale signs of dehydration that we all want to avoid, especially over the holidays. The World Health Organization defines being extremely dehydrated as losing more than 10% of your body weight in fluid. However, the truth is that the majority of us suffer from mild dehydration and start to feel the symptoms upon losing 5 or 6 percent. Feeling thirsty, tired or lightheaded are sure signs you’re dehydrated, but some signs aren’t so obvious. Here are the surprising signs and symptoms of dehydration to look out for.

SURPRISING SIGNS OF DEHYDRATION

  • Chapped lips
  • Dry skin
  • Brain fog
  • Hunger/food cravings

If you experience any of these symptoms on a daily basis, chances are you’re mildly dehydrated. The good news?
