The salt in the sports drink combos helps. Unfortunately it also can create a problem sometimes. Taking in some potassium a little while later seems to help eliminate any swelling from overloading on salt. Munching on broccoli or banana are two I've had luck with. This is my unscientific, epidemiological observation. :-)

Sports drinks with electrolytes, or coconut water, or just eating fruits in addition to drinking water, are some ways to replenish electrolytes in addition to simple h2o

Salt & potassium

Some sports drinks and brands of coconut water have added sugars though so read the labels! Adding some lemons and other fruit in your water will help as well!

I make my own sports drink in a jug in the fridge and it's so nice for working out, when you're ill/dehydrated or even hungover. If you want I'll send you the recipe, it's very simple!

Here it is :)

Lemon ginger sports drink:
1 medium ginger root, in slices.
1 liter of water.

Let those simmer under a lid for about 30 minutes and then turn the heat off and add in 1/4 -1/2 teaspoon of fine seasalt, then let it cool down with the ginger in there. When it's cooled down throw out the ginger and add in:

The juice of 3 lemons
1 liter of water/coconut water( I usually just use water but coconut water has potassium)
Some stevia(or whatever sweetener you prefer)

That's it. I think it tastes like a lemonade mixed with a sports drink, I actually really like to just drink it, lol

Never thot that a health drink can be made ths tasty!!! Sounds yummm....thanks....cheers...after i make it

Sounds delicious but just like Bald C I think I'm too lazy to prepare it, lol.

Haha, okok. Though I think the way I wrote it made it seem more complicated than it is

It was mostly the lemons. Like "whaat go to the store and buy three lemons and then just squeeze them oh hell no". I don't know why that sounds so strenuous! Maybe I could just use ready-made lemon juice. How long does it keep fresh?

Those damn lemons. Well, I'm sure you can try the bottled stuff, but you would need kinda a lot. It's never lasted me longer than like 5 days so I can't say if it'll last longer. Now I'm worried you guys will hate it if you decide try it... After all that haaaard work :p

becoming over hydrated is a very hard thing to do!

when you drink water, try to have little sips throughout the day instead of chugging it all in on go. that much water at once WILL bloat you.

you can get water in different forms like the person below mentioned, coconut water, and fruits are high in water, they are great if you wanna switch things up.

like i said, keep drinking, not chugging, and you'll be good. i actually think online theres a water calculator where you can actually calculate how much water your supposed to have.
