Studies show that what you eat and drink before, during and after your workout can positively affect your fitness success. Before you exercise again; whether you are doing cardio activities, strength or resistance training or even playing a sport be sure to fill up your water bottle and pack a snack; here are the specifics!
Be aware that feeling thirsty is not a good indicator of the need for hydration, by the time you are actually thirsty you have already lost over 1% of your total water. Did you know that 66% of our bodies consist of water, it is contained in all of our organs and our brains are 75% water.
When exercising water actually gives you energy and most experts recommend drinking at least a cup for every 15 minutes of regular exercise! If you are exercising for long durations or at extremely high intensities for more than 60 to 90 minutes then sports drinks or power drinks are a good idea because they can help replace essential vitamins and minerals that are lost due to the activity.
