The scenario speaks off scorching heat, the burning sun, the sweating bodies taking almost all the calories and leaving us dehydrated.  In sweating our bodies lose out the essential moisture and minerals and as doctors and dieticians suggest eating fresh fruits and salads along with lots of water may help replenish the mineral loss and retain fluids.
