What do you put in your Hydration system? - Page 2

post #31 of 47
There is a Cytomax Lite in powder form.

I used it until I got sick of the ersatz iced tea flavor (about a week) but it might work for you. It will not help you recover from a bonk.

What specific problem are you trying to address? Are you perspiring profusely on tour?

Just need for ski school week. first two and 1/2 days I am fine, then the rest of the 3rd and 4th day, I need all the help I can get. I have hypoglycemia which means I can lose energy real quick and have to eat good protein and complex carbs. At school I dont always get the opportunity to refuel properly. Also, I am trying to prevent as much muscle fatigue as possible and I thought proper hydration and something to help flush lactic acid was the way to go. I am open to ideas. I am just a hopeless tech-head

Bonni,

Sometimes we do have a problem with that yellow snow thing. I walked into the woods one time over at Pico. Went into my armpits.: Can't do anything in that position. When I finally got out I still had to go.

Finndog, ignore everything that's been said in this thread. Go to the Fitness forum and post a thread 'Hypoglycemic Skier' and try to get expert help, hopefully an RD who skis and can continually work with you.

Thanks, will do!

Took awhile to get the right answer!

It is best to state the reasons early on as you have just found out.

One thing to remember is that few with the right credentials will be willing to "diagnose or prescribe" online.

I agree w/comprex that fitness is the better forum for this question.

Thanks Todd for the Jack Daniels on that minus 30 degree day on the lift at Whiteface.

Most don't know what Hypoglycemia is and I do have a very good understanding and control over it. Most medical people, DR's and such don't know how to actually control it. I still see crap like , "eat sugar" if you are hitting a low. Since the answer isn't 100% based on that, I didn't start there. It started in search of good electolyte additive and still is to an extent. If I can get better answer on "Fitness" then great.

Pretty funny T-Sqare. Never kick out of your bindings if possible, as you can attest.

Water.

99.9% of drinks like Gatorade etc are crap. Period, end of story.

Until recently I used XLR8 a liquid concentrate for electrolyte replacement. It worked great. I could ski all day and not eat except breakfast. I understand it's going or gone out of business. I now use Warpe Aide, a powder like Cytomax, but it is better tasting, longer lasting and doesn't have the after taste.

This thread reminds of the line "Any More Rocket Fuel for You Hardhats?"

Anyone able to name the source? ;-)
