Nutrition Tip: Hydration

Nutrition Tip: Hydration
May 27, 2014 Cindy Rakowitz

Spring has ARRIVED and so has the HEAT! During these warm days nothing is more important than HYDRATING, especially when exercising. Here are some tips to make sure you’re keeping yourself hydrated while being active out in the heat!

– Drink WATER! You want to drink a good amount of water before a workout (~2-3 cups), during (sipping is necessary) and ESPECIALLY after the workout to replace fluids and electrolytes lost through sweat!

– Consume FRUIT! There are a numerous amount of fruits that have an efficient amount of both electrolytes and fluid! Turn to fruits such as watermelon, grapefruit, strawberries, cantaloupe, oranges, and pineapple to stay hydrated! (PS. Turn to BANANAS to replace electrolytes such as potassium!)

– Drink COCONUT WATER! When we sweat, we lose electrolytes (minerals in our blood that help to regulate the amount of water in our body) from sweating. By drinking coconut water after a workout, you are replenishing electrolytes such as potassium, magnesium, and sodium that serve as catalysts in many of our body’s necessary functions.

    Heya! I know this is somewhat off-topic however I needed to
    ask. Does managing a well-established blog such as yours take a massive amount work?
    I am completely new to running a blog however I do write in my journal daily.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my experience
    and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any kind of
    suggestions or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!

      Hi Drukarnia–quite on topic since our blogs got your attention right? We think that wordpress provides simple blog management platforms and we enjoy using it. Also, since we have built a very engaged community audience on the Fit 4 The Cause Facebook page–we always post our weekly blog simultaneously on that platform. There are other blog management tools available through Google. These tools help you to compile content related to your topic. We don’t use them–because we like to write from our hearts and souls.
