take in small amounts of fluid on
a regular basis while exercising.
For some people, water is
enough; for others, water is bor-
ing. In fact, research at the
Gatorade Sports Science Insti-
tute reports that active people
tend to drink more if the fluid
tastes good. In other words, a
sports drink is likely to disappear
faster than a jug of water.
According to Ms. Clark, a
sports drink can mean better hy-
dration for someone exercising
for an hour or more because the
body absorbs sports drinks slight-

trolytes are a minor concern for
most recreational athletes unless
they're competing in something
like a triathlon. On the other
hand, since the main purpose of
the electrolytes in sports drinks
is to enhance water absorption,
sports drinks are a good source
for rapid fluid replacement.
Mr. Timlin also recommends
replacing the lost fluid before ex-
ercising again, otherwise chron-
ic dehydration can develop. He
suggests weighing in before and
after exercise. A loss of 1 pound
signifies the loss of one pint of wa-
ter from the body. Ms. Clark also
suggests drinking carbohydrate-
rich beverages such as juices and
soft drinks for quick recovery af-
ter exercising to replace both wa-
ter and glycogen losses. ❑
