Suggestions for drinking and eating on days when you exercise heavily



Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I've been struggling with hydration and caloric issues when exercising lately, to the point that I am getting early warnings of dehydration. I play tennis a minimum of three days a week, and the summer has been killing me. I can't seem to drink enough Water to keep up with my needs. I actually just finished a weekend tennis camp and I had to put salt on my tongue every hour to try and retain some of the water I was losing by sweating. I also think I need a few more calories to maintain performance, but Protein Bars have been a no-go for me. I can only manage one bite. Do any of you have experience in adding more calories and water to your diet for sports? What has worked for you?

If you are not at goal yet, ask your dietician for advice on diet changes. Give them your workout routine and calories burned. If you are at an athlete level, you may want to hire a sports medicine dietician.

Dehydration. I use NUUN tabs in my water. Test them out to see if they sit well in your stomach.

      Donated 50 lbs of Jeans and another 30lbs of shirts to Salvation Army. 
      Had to go buy some new clothes that I used to hate, but now kind of like. Trying not to buy too many though as I know in a few months I'll be donating them as well.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew! I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
