    How to rehydrate FAST after dehydration/water weight loss???

    The situation is.............I have to make a specific weight for my sport. when i get to weight i have to be very dehydrated and last event i never did get my strength back from the weight loss and was very weak at the time of the event....

    i usually have about 12 hours to hydrate myself back...is there any recommended drinks? or is water the best thing? last time i drank a half gallon of OJ and i thought i'd be fine...

    Gatorade is full of colorants and other chemicals not good for your body. Here is a very simple recipe:
    1 Lt of water
    8 Teaspoons of Sugar (For Glucose)
    1 Teaspoon of Salt (For Sodium)
    1/2 Cup of pure orange juice, not from concentrate (For potassium and Taste)
    Shake it well and take it in a period of 2 to 4 hours.

    45 minutes of exercise will make your body loose 3.5 pounds of "liquids" a.k.a Water (in that water we are loosing salt, thats why sweat taste salty) Salt (sodium) is very important for hydration. Have you heard that salt make's you retain water? well its true. follow this simple recipe and you will feel better pretty soon and don't forget to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day.

    The following works best for me: a banana, a grape fruit, 16 ounces of water and another 16 ounces of water every 1-1/2 to 3 hours.

    BANa Serious Rehydration is a relatively new, all natural product that is formulated based off of a Saline IV and is meant to rehydrate you within 15-20 minutes. It's all natural, mainly consisting of salt, water, potassium and a few other vitamins to help rehydrate you quickly. You can only get the product online, search for Bana Drink, but it will hopefully by in major grocery stores by the end of the year! The stuff really works!
