The diet can be kept supplemented with meat and vegetable soups to supplement the lost amount of water.

Always drink clean and filtered water.
Water that is used for cooking must also be very clean and from good sources.
Always wash fruits before eating them.
Do not eat food that has been undercooked. This is especially true in the case of flesh foods.
