I recently did a lecture as part of Mac Nutrition Uni which covered dehydration. It really caught my attention, simply because I know for sure that I struggle to drink enough water and i know clients are often dehydrated. ๐Ÿฅต

We all know water makes up a huge part of our body, Making up 70% of Muscle and 10% of Fat. So if you are in the gym and you are dehydrated, its likely you are are going to feel some affect. It is actually proven that exercise is harder when dehydrated (Mudambo et al 1997) ๐Ÿ˜…
Not only is dehydration affecting your gym performance but also your overall health. We all know thirst, dry mouth, lethargy, dizziness and cognitive function common symptoms. ๐Ÿค“

Often clients in office jobs complain of they above, and it because they reach espressos to perk them up though-out the day, and although they are liquid, it doesn’t mean they are overly hydrating. โ˜•๏ธ
Something that has really sparked me is that drinks with huger energy, full fat coke, fresh orange etc retained in the body longer, keeping your hydrated for longer. Where as water, tea, beer will pass through you much quicker. ๐Ÿผ
I think we are all guilty of being a bit dehydrated and not drinking enough.
4 simple ways on how to improve.
– Always carry a water bottle – Ocean Fit Ones are available ๐Ÿ˜‰
– Choose palatable drinks (sugar free juice) ๐Ÿพ
– Consider hydration index of what your drinking, dairy milk is great as are hypertonic sports drinks. ๐Ÿฎ
– Your wee should be clear and fresh. Mmm. ๐Ÿ‹
