·         Some people find that eating and drinking at the same time makes them feel more nauseated. Try separating your solids and liquids.  


·         The smell of food can cause nausea. Avoid the smell of foods that bother you. To avoid nausea caused by food smells, eat cold or room temperature foods because they do not smell as strong as hot foods.


·         It is important to drink enough fluid to avoid dehydration, especially in hot weather. Dehydration happens when you do not have enough fluids in your body. Fluids include water, soups, smoothies, juice and milk or milk alternatives.
