Hello Friends. Welcome back to Day 13. Today you will learn about the best source of hydration.
Hydration is important and also a concern. There are lots of option for hydration. At first glance, it would be tough to decide, what to choose.
Hydration medium is important as it impacts result, thus your effort.
To help you make the best choice, we will explore the best source. Also you will also learn one best tip to hydrate. It will help you replenish lost water and even electrolyte.
Without any delay let’s get started.
1. Sports Drink
Let’s first start with product known for convenience and also high promises.
Yes! Sports Drink.
You will come across many sports drink. They’re helpful… but do you need them is the real question.
Like supplements it’s a products that has a purpose. Use without purpose and it won’t be helpful.
If you’re trying to lose weight you might find that you’re drinking more calories than burning.
Sports drinks are products that will help to get calories so you can continue your workout without energy crash. But such cases happen when you’re training intense for hours.
If you’re just beginning and will train for 30 minutes to 1 1/2 hour, you don’t need any sports drink.
You can use them if you’re feeling low in energy. Also rarely.
The next option will help you get back energy quickly.
Fruit is a good option.
If you’re planning to add 1-2 servings of fruit during training, it’s a good choice. Where’s if you had a balanced meal or snack before training you won’t need. But if you’re feeling low, you can try fruit.
I am talking about fruit not fruit juice — it may be homemade or packed fruit juice available in market.
Say no to fruit juice. They will load you with calories. Instead, try whole fruit.
The reason to avoid fruit juice is they don’t contain fiber and can raise blood sugar quickly. A whole fruit is the best option so stick to it.
Major of the time — you won’t need anything more than water.
Yes! Water is the best source. Crystal clear water is all you need for your training. In the earlier video, I have highlighted the importance of water.
Take a sip every 10-15 minute or as required. Feel thirst, get a sip.
Sometime you might feel low even after drinking enough water. It’s where sport drinks come handy as they help to balance electrolyte.
If you are planning to add sports drinks, use them rarely. But check whether it contain electrolytes. Avoid that contains only sugar.
While there is a better option you can try.
It’s natural and healthiest food. Helps to hydrate and balance electrolyte. It’s best for refreshment. You can drink 2-3 coconut every week or more.
That’s all you need to know about the medium of hydration.
Give priority to water.
Or if you need an energy boost — you can try fruit instead of fruit juice. Fruit will hydrate and also provide energy.
Keep sports drink as the last option.
