Eat water-rich foods

According to Nutrition News, food choices can account for 20 percent of your daily fluid intake. Many fruits and vegetables contain large amounts of water. Watermelons, strawberries, and tomatoes are just a few examples of foods rich in water. Luckily, these fruits are also in season during the summer and should not be too difficult to find in your local supermarket.
