August Nutrition Notes
Holly Westling

Wow! What a beautiful summer we are having! Summers like this are exactly what we need after long winters -days are lush, and green with lots of sun and summer heat. One way we can make the most of our summers and maintain our energy is to stay well-hydrated during this lovely, hot weather. Many questions arise when thinking about hydration during he summer -such as: “how much should I be drinking” and “what is the best way to hydrate?” This can be complicated - especially for athletes who lose so much hydration during exercise. In an ideal world, we should try to drink half of our body’s weight in ounces of water each day. This can be hard to achieve, but a good goal to keep in mind. Carrying a water bottle with you and sipping from it regularly is the best way to stay hydrated. Sometimes it can be hard to remember to do this in our busy lives, so setting a goal of needing to refill your water bottle every 2 - 3 hours and even setting an alarm as a reminder can be a helpful strategy. I recommend limiting caffeinated drinks to only one or two a day as caffeine has a natural diuretic that can reduce hydration.

For athletes who lose a lot of hydration through sweating, it is important to not only replace fluids, but also electrolytes. Usually we can replenish electrolytes easily through food, but for someone who sweats a lot, an electrolyte drink can be especially helpful in hydration. Many “sports drinks” on the market contain artificial flavors, colors and a tremendous amount of sugar along with the replenishing electrolytes. I advise avoiding these colorful drinks that promise to hydrate you because they will also add chemicals to your system that will promote inflammation (something we all want to try to avoid for long-term health). An excellent alternative that will hydrate and not promote inflammation is coconut water. Coconut water is the liquid extracted from the core of the coconut and naturally contains necessary electrolytes such as sodium, potassium, magnesium, calcium and phosphorus. If coconut water is not an option for you, here is a simple recipe that will help with hydration and electrolyte replenishing. Cheers to the warm summer!

To make a quick, natural electrolyte drink, mix together: 3 cups of water 1/2 cup of your favorite unsweetened, juice (blueberry and orange are great for providing extra anti-oxidant support) 2 Tablespoons pure maple syrup or honey 1/8 teaspoon sea salt

Stay well!
