    • Importance of water
      • Brain 74%
      • Muscles 75%
      • Total body is 83%
    • Fat cells can not be broken down without water
    • Mild dehydration slows metabolism by 3 %
    • Under drink over eat (thirst signal)
    • dehydration level of 2.9 percent of body fat decreased strength by 19.2%in the lower body and 7.17 in the upper body
    • 28 days without food vs 72 hours without water
  • How we lose water
    • Urination- always check colour test ( hands test)
    • Sweat
    • Breathing
    • Exercise
      • Average 1 hr training session in warm environment = 1.5 Litres lost
      • Tough session on hot day= 3 L lost
      • 1lb weight loss = 1 pint of water
      • Post workout shake = 1 L
  • Dehydration
    • By the time you are thirsty you have already lost 1.5- 2 L
    • 3% dehydration is considered clinically dehydrated
    • It takes over 24 hrs to become hydrated, weeks if you are chronically dehydrated.
    • Cold water is absorbed quicker than warm water, it also elevates metabolism.
    • Do not start the day with Ice cold water
  • When to Drink
    • Upon awakening- 1 Litre ( drinking large volumes means it gets to work faster)
    • Training- sip every 15 minutes ( the fitter you are and the tougher the session the more you need)
    • If you become dehydrated during a session, it becomes harder to get hydrated due to slower gastric emptying. So don't get dehydrated in the first place.
    • Stress will delay gastric emptying so use psychological techniques to absorb water + nutrients
    • Between meals- .5 to 1 Litre, during meals?
    • All of the above should be done gradually over the space of a few weeks. Once at a good level it is important to maintain it. ( electrolyte balance)
