Weight Loss Help


 Welcome to our sports and athletic training site. This site is about diet and weight loss help, along with advise on better health and exercises.

  The fact is that a properly hydrated body can withstand a workout session 30-45 minutes in length without water. After that it must be hydrated. Yes, we all heard about the Special Operation Forces; they workout the whole day and don't eat or drink. That may be true, but this type of training doesn't last long. Few days, a week at most. However, most of us are not training for special missions (although we sure do wish we were). We want to know how to defend ourselves, or win a tournament. Going for a long time without water, is not a requirement for us.
It is safe to say that most people are dehydrated but don't even know it. Thirst is not the fist signal of dehydration. It' may not even be the second. So if you do experience thirst, watch out.
Here are some very common symptoms of dehydration.
Fatigue, Digestive discomfort ,Headaches ,Constipation ,etc
Remember an elder person, will experience these symptoms more than a youngster, even if the level of dehydration is the same.
  If after reading this you decide to drink more water. Remember pure water is the best choice. Go for bottled or filtered variety. If you are active 10-12 glasses will serve you right.
Heard about athletic drinks?
To replace expensive and artificial re-hydration beverages, try this:
Into a liter of water add sea salt and raw organic dehydrated cane juice. These substances are the most natural and pure sources of salt and sugar. They are not refined and contain many useful vitamins and minerals. The pureness of this substances, minimizes the negative effects of salt and sugar that we are used to hear about. Experiment with taste. Besides replenishing nutrients lost while sweating, this drink helps to prevent water loss, and facilitates water retention in your cells.
  As you get older, your body’s signals get weaker. When you are young, if you drink when you are thirsty, you will probably get enough water. But by the time you are 60, if you drink only when you are thirsty, you will only get about 90% of the fluids you need.
  Hydration Tips: Try a hydration back pack.
Start hydrating early. Drink 1-2 cups of water when you first get up in the morning
Keep a water bottle with you all day long.
Drink before you get thirsty (thirst is a sign that your body is already dehydrated).
Drink 1-2 cups of fluid 30 minutes before exercise.
Drink 1/2-1 cup of fluid every 15 minutes of exercise.
Replenish lost fluids (2 1/2 cups of fluid for every pound lost during exercise).
Keep drinking even after your thirst is quenched.
Water vs Sport Drinks
  For exercise lasting under 45 minutes, water is your best choice. For the recreational athlete who may exercise for 30-40 minutes per session, water is sufficient for hydration.
Water is easily absorbed.
Water is the best choice to drink before moderate-length exercise. Water is readily available and less expensive than sports drinks.
