Just a thought, I wonder what the old masters drank before? Surely there wasn't a Gatorade bottle for sale two hundred years ago..

They drank from the holy grail. It would allow them to access their Chi energies.

Try Milk.
Seriously a pint of milk does wonders to provide protein etc to repair damage after a workout or session.

Good article.
Remembering training in florida with american troops they had a sachet of salt/majic/electrolyte powder we tried it and it was vile in water, but when you had had a hard day, even with the 9 liters they recomended us unaclimatised to drink, it had little or no taste, one old soldier recomended trying a pinch of salt, and if it didnt taste strong have some more, as that showed a deficiency.
The other British Army susperstision was the pee fairy, if its dark yellow drink more, if its brown panic and drink more. mines often all sorts of wierd hues now as i love monster and rock star.
but if on normal fluids it should be a good guide, I was also told by one of the jungle trained guys in Africa, if you drink shed loads, and wee a lot it helps cool the body down as it carries out heat.

I must admit I am a suppliment 'junkie'. It just gives you confidence to support your intense workouts with electrolytes and post-workouts with protein. I used to be against all the flavourings in these things, but now it's a pretty good reward for hard work. Heck, it sure beats cigs and grog hey!

I like to Drink EcoDrink it has 3x the electrolytes as most sports drinks without the sugar or sodium. It really re-hydrates me after my workout and training!!!!

Simon,

Please tell the folks, in layman's terms, what is meant when a label reads;

"Pre-Digested"

It's not a scary as it sounds.

Pre-digested is a term used for food that has gone through a process of artificial digestion by enzymes. This makes the food, or drink in this case, easier to digest, but you knew that.

Drinking too much water can lead to a serious imbalance in electrolytes which can, in turn, lead to death:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyponatremia

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water_intoxication

It's can be one of the causes of deaths following MDMA (Ecstasy) use, as the drug often makes the user feel very thirsty. It can also occur in endurance sports, partially because of the over-emphasis there has been on the importance of staying 'hydrated' that has been drummed into the public conscious by the adverts for sports drinks.
