This was an excellent article. All the foods I have been avoiding I should be eating.

A great starter is an egg, turkey bacon with peanut butter on 100% whole grain bread.

Happy 2014, JWASHINGTON1031!

I found several answers for your situation at this discussion site: http://www.bikeforums.net/archive/in
dex.php/t-660436.html

Apparently, maybe Gatorade is too concentrated, and also may have too much sodium and sugar. Some users suggest DILUTING it before drinking. Some recommended a different drink called HEED. Someone else suggested using ENDUROLYTE. Another person gave a good "recipe" for soaking dates and fruit, and using THAT has the base of your own energy/post-workout drink. I'm going to try some of these myself!

All the best, and good luck, everyone!

When I workout I am always sweating twice as much as any of my friends -- not just during exercise, but generally I sweat profusely in heat, etc... My problem during exercise is that I know I should be drinking something with electrolytes to replace minerals lost, but when I consume drinks like Gatorade I get excruciating stomach cramps IMMEDIATELY. Does anyone have any ideas about what I might try instead??

I thought it odd that they would push the carbs not the protein. Hmmmmmmm

After my morning walk, I have a protein smoothie with banana, strawberries or blueberries or a protein bar and fruit, 30min. to 60min. after workout.
