  1. Thank you for the podcast. I always like to listen to your advises and comments. Hydration had been on my mind since a friend of mine got dehydrated during a ride in Amasa Back, Moab, Utah. He was puking water, so he had 3 bag of saline on the ER. He was drinking water and Gatorade. A few years later another friend got dehydrated and fainted, another ER visit with 3 bags of saline. Dr told us that the body produces sweat to cool down the body, Clothing that removes the sweat from the body and wind drying the clothing can make you dehydrate very fast as your body tries to sweat more to cool you down again and again. Water without salt(minerals) will go thru your system removing minerals and making you dehydrated. Same as too much caffeine can dehydrate you too. I hope someday I can find the right answer to the dehydration issue…

      Thanks for your note. You make some valid points. One thing that I know is clear, everyone is different and we all require different levels of hydration and electrolytes. If you go back and listen to our episodes with Kelli on nutrition and hydration that should help. Bottom line is that we need to drink a lot of fluids when its hot and longer than an hour and a half or so take in some sort of electrolyte potion.

    Good info. I hadn’t thought of putting a frozen bottle in the back pocket. I use Cytomax in one 24oz bottle with the other plain water. I’ve tried other products, this seems to work the best.
