The decision to load bottles with a sports drink mix or just drink plain water is more complicated than grabbing a gel or bar to fuel your body and should be given careful consideration to determine what it is right for your training needs. If you’re new to using mix, dilute it with water. This allows your gut to get used to drinking carbohydrates and sodium slowly with less chance of gastric. The main thing to keep in mind here is that you always need water, but you only sometimes need a sports drink.

Your body is made up of roughly 50 to 60% water as an adult. You constantly lose. Under no conditions should you ever completely forgo water and drink only sports drinks.

Your main source of fluid should always be water. But under certain conditions, it makes sense to. Sports drinks like Gatorade, Powerade, and All Sport can give you a needed energy boost during your activity. They are designed to rapidly replace fluids and to increase the sugar (glucose.

Sports drinks are recommended over plain water to replace fluid and electrolytes if you tend to sweat a lot, exercise longer than one hour or in hot environments (5, 6, 7). On the downside, these drinks can be expensive, and in rides lasting under an hour in relatively cool conditions, good old water will do the job nicely. If you’re not a fan of plain water, you can.

Plus, it’s even worse if you put sweeteners or a sports drink into your water bottle. “If your drink has sugar, then this will accelerate the growth of organisms that can eventually make you ill if left out for a long time or if the bottle is not properly cleaned before the next use,” Vila says. Hydrogen water is simply pure water with extra hydrogen molecules added to it.. Hydrogen is a colorless, odorless, non-toxic gas that binds to other elements like oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon to. How is one “supposed” to drink from a water/soda bottle?

There is an ongoing debate in my family about this. Some people say you should have your whole mouth around the bottle, and some people say just your lower mouth should be around it and your lips around the top part of it. So how do YOU do it AND is there an actual etiquette for drinking out of a bottle?

Some strategies that can ensure adolescents are replenishing their electrolytes while hydrating properly include using sports drinks only during prolonged activity, diluting the sports drink with water (50/50), and drinking seltzer water instead of soda and tea instead of coffee.

  • Why would you do serving sizes and not the entire bottle. Nobody follows serving sizes. NOBODY. Oh I think I’ll just have 2 double stuf oreos. After all that is the serving size. Said no one ever.

  • Kleen Kanteen should have gotten an honorable mention, I’ve had those bottles for years and they are durable and a little cheaper than Hydro Flask bottles.

  • I want to purchase new resistance band
    My question?
    1. Wht should be its length as im 5 feet 5 inch tall, and cant do shoulder workout with my band..
    2. Should i purchase resistance band or rubber band?
    Please Reply ����

  • “They actually gained weight by drinking water.”
    Yeah, don’t we all? Anything we put in our bodies is going to cause temporary weight gain

  • The side sip allows you to keep your head level and your eyes on the road and also apparently turn your sunglasses invisible with use of magic or some top secret military technology.

  • Nalgenes also have an awesome warranty. If you break it, take a picture of it and email it to the company and they’ll replace it for free without a receipt

  • Yeti thermos trumps both the ozark and hydroflask. It’s dishwasher safe and can take an absolute beating, definitely heavier than the Hydro Flask however.

  • Ehh… I don’t mind drinking that much sugar. I’m aware that I’m probably consuming way more than recommended. As a matter of fact I drink/eats lots of carbs but no health problems with just a slight Triglycerides. I’m a sugar addict. I also eat lots of sweets.

  • How to drink from a bottle? Seriously? What’s next how to shit in the woods? Well, on second thought, remembering last Giro that suddenly makes sense… ;o)

  • I drink body armor I thought it was healthy I am disappointed it has coconut water that’s why I liked it I drink it most of the time ��

  • Ok… first HDL AND LDL are NOT cholesterol Second the real recommended amount of sugar should be ZERO it’s not good for period!!!

  • I agree with most of this but as a kid that would often forget to drink until I was very dehydrated and throwing up I think kids do need to be reminded to drink water especially on hot days.

  • I love your food wars videos. I really like how you mention a lot of people don’t need to use a sports drink when working out because they don’t work out hard enough. If I recall correctly sport drinks are really only recommended if you work out an hour or longer or if its really hot to replace sodium. I am sure how much potassium you need after a workout I suppose it might help prevent muscle soreness?

  • I’ve been eating very healthy over the past few months, mostly organic plant foods with organic eggs and meats occasionally. I just went for a long drive and grabbed a Gatorade for the ride. This wiped me out, feel super tired and a little sickly. I had no idea how much sugar was in these things.

  • When I was in Sri Lanka, there were tons of king coconuts. It was well known by the locals that if you’ve been in the sun or are really hot, you just chop the top off of one and drink it down. The juice inside is very bland. I’m not surprised there isn’t any sodium in it though. Thanks for the great videos!

  • I brought a pair of hydro flask from Costco and didnt like it at all. After a couple hours the ice melt or the water taste bad. Talked to customer service and it wasnt much help. The only good thing about those hydro flask bottles r appearances and lid design.

    I end up preferring the cheap one i brought at Walmart from Built. It kept ice for a long time despite my broken lid with two holes that never close.

  • As an exercise physiologist, I love that you are exposing some of the misconceptions of sports drinks. I would love to see a video on Low Cal/Zero Cal sports drinks such as Propel, G2 and others out there. Keep up the good work

  • Sick, lol I got a free custom Vikings one with my name on it for scanning a QR code from a Gatorade I got from Target and it said I was a winner! Can’t wait to get mine! ��

  • I need to get some of those vidamen1 drinks and kick out the Gatorade and Powerade, to be far though I only drink it to keep me hydrated and water dosnt work for me for some reason (I still drink water though) and I get overheated vary easily so hopefully I can find these in a store near me and I hope they tast good XD

  • All I drink is water I’m so boring I do love horchata or whatever it’s called also healthy shit like v8… That’s about it though… Oh and root beer in the glass bottle thought canned root beer is weak man’s root beer.

  • But i feel depressed when i dont drink alot i think its ok to drink alot as long as youre using your body also i feel good when i sweat alot

  • You missed out the “swap” Take bidon, drink, hold in teeth, move full bidon from rear cage to front cage, remove bidon from teeth and place in rear cage. These things can only be learned, they cannot be taught:-)

  • Got this bottle son used it for just about a month and there is a crack already around the neck of the bottle, not happy! has other Gatorade bottles no issues and they are 5+ yrs old.

  • As a cross country runner I don’t agree with the “drink if your thirsty” going on long runs with a bunch a lot of water before I feel way better and yes I get cramps when I don’t drink as much and mouth feels dry and overall just worse, you can say oh it’s just a mental thing but I don’t purposely avoid drinking a bunch of water some days I just don’t and half way threw a run I can feel it, so yeah idk I say drink a decent anoint idk the amount and there is none 8 glasses in not needed but drink when your thirsty, plus a little more that’s your best bet

  • I always eat a protein/carb bare before training but if I get it right, no COMPLEXE carb after the workout? Thanks SOOOOOOOO Much:)

  • If you are in the military sweating buckets of water out… You probably still need more than 8 glasses of water. Case by case adam. Misleading title.

  • If you dont want to pay full price for the Hydroflasks, you can wait until they do a seasonal sale. They have a 4th of July sale 25% off everything which took off $10 the 32OZ one which was originally $40. Its not much but it is something. There are also many dupes on amazon that the reviews say are great.

  • so i have the problem that unless i am really dehydrated [like if i haven’t drank anything in one day, but even then not always] i dont feel thirsty. i never know when i am dehydrated bcuz i can’t feel thrist:(
    when i drink i do feel like ‘hmm yesh this is good’ but ye it hard:/

  • Man its crazy what sugar does to you, the scary part of it for me is the HUGE decrease in metabolic rate from some grams of sugar alone, whenever i gotta take a gulp of coke or other drinks due to circumstances like chilling with friends and (regular water bottle scarcity, yeah it exist some places where everyone prefers soft drinks xD) i get anxiety levels and be like ‘Welp here goes goodbye to my metabolic rates that i managed to NOT DECREASE the past weak:I’

  • try adding coconut water, milk and protein whey shake. this is possibly the best post workout shake you can drink for muscle healing and hydration

  • Mira bottles ftw, under half the price of hydroflask, identical and also compatible with all hydroflask lids. Think the 40oz is like 15 bucks on amazon



  • Here’s one for free guys, take an evening a week, go to one of the many crit circuits the UK over and let’s inform people how and where to get racing. Interview some local hero’s, organisers, helpers etc look at the tracks get some footage of the racing. I’m all for the tongue in cheek stuff but come on.

  • ….but the video ends pretty much contradicting it’s importance on the subject. Adam got everyone all worked up into a froth and then tells them, the chances of overhydration is extremely rare….

    Fake news.

  • This is seriously misleading! Just like ads he claims to bust. Over hydration while exercising not needed or sports drinks may be over done by coaches. But this does not mean healthy body don’t need eight glasses of water everyday! Water is good n there is plenty of research to support it…

  • Well this made me laugh hard… “Drink when you are thirsty” while that may be right for most people because we drink appropriate amounts of water it is not right for all. Some people have higher tolerance levels than others. This just means that they fell thirsty at a much later date and often by then they are dehydrated to some degree especially if they are exercising or it’s hot outside.

    I don’t know how it’s in America but in my home country water doesn’t equal sports drinks. Sports drinks are for when you are doing activity that could decrease your electrolyte count. While our body has some reserves and leeway for homeostasis, doing such activity often without proper eating and drinking is going to ruin your body.

    The main point of what I am trying to say is think before you believe everything on the net. I don’t know what the situation is in America with over drinking but where I am from I often get people who are dehydrated to some point and that causes more problems than it’s worth.

  • I’ve never “bulked” before. I prefer the approach of progressive gains as part of a fitness lifestyle. If you’re looking to add more calories…try to eat more nuts, avocados, nut butters, and of course more meat.

  • Really, a big thank you 😉 I’ll try this for sure! You’re amazing man! People like you are the reason so many of us reach our goals. When I’ll get to mine, you’ll be a part of it:)

  • Another informative video. After your watching your videos I have taken to buying coconut milk. You mentioning drinking another animals milk didn’t sit too well with me haha and organic butter, also been drinking lemon water in the morning and there is a definite difference to when I didn’t or when i don’t. These videos really are the best and really have made a difference!

  • How about a variant on the “fakey” if you have a wheel sucker you can’t shake, you could “miss your mouth” and squirt behind you!

  • Hydrating has nothing to do with Gatorade. This clown or his producer are not informed about the question. Hydration is important for every day life, not only for working out. How will your lymphatic system flush sewage out of your body tissues without water? Ok, go on, drink just one glass of water per day, then don’t cry when you are suddenly a wreck after you turn 40 and your systems start failing one by one.

  • Not only at hydroflasks expensive, they get dinged up, they don’t insulate that well. GET A RTIC WATERBOTTLE you’ll thank me later

  • Looking at other comments I don’t know what to think…. I was chuckling through this video and it was great to watch, but it’s in no way informative content.

  • I drink almost a gallon a day and feel much better than when I drank when I was thirsty. Idk if this means anything but I don’t drink anything besides water and apple cider vinegar.

  • I used one of my pods and then I cleaned out the bottle with hot water like 5 times but The water I put in it tastes like the Gatorade I used how do I clean it so it doesn’t taste like that again

  • Lovely Video! Apologies for butting in, I am interested in your thoughts. Have you researched Dinanlinson Shrinking Body Approach (do a google search)? It is a great one of a kind guide for discovering a weird waist slimming water to lose belly fat minus the headache. Ive heard some decent things about it and my friend Sam after many years got cool success with it.

  • I was surprised when I saw you had under 1k, your content is worthy of a channel with over 100k, the video quality, audio quality, everything is just really good. Keep it up and you’ll get there eventually.

  • Hello there mike i recently just found out about your channel and have watched some of your videos. and you are an animal and a genius with work out routines so creative. Thank you for being awesome and having an amazing channel u are the best p.s my name is bruce oh and SUBBED

  • This is the problem with this show— it only shows the controversial topics. Here, It only shows that dehydration isn’t usually dangerous. What about the benefits of drinking water? I don’t want to be “just fine” drinking when I’m thirsty, I want to see a comprehensive study of how I can use water to benefit my workout (when I should drink it and how much) to increase muscle protein synthesis. This is information that needs a basis and good research that SHOWS the pros and cons of drinking water before, during and after exercise.

  • All the people saying that she’s telling you what to do know she’s not you’re just making everything about you she is just not saying that at all she’s just stating the fact It’s no different than a doctor saying it and healthy they’re not saying you have to listen you just assume that because you’re used to everything being about you so you take it as a personal attack the world doesn’t revolve around you and doesn’t always mean someone’s trying to be rude to you But one thing I don’t agree with her on in your guys are probly going to be even more mad at me about it because you don’t seem to like it when someone says something I do not agree with her that sports drinks are good at any time I don’t think that they help you with rehydration because I personally have been 60 minutes in to a workout being extreme like she’s saying and it did not help only water helped that’s because we’re not made out a 70% gadoraid We are made out of 70% water But at the end of the day it’s just advice and take it as that not as an attack Grow some skin not everything’s about you guys

  • Be sure to have a pre-workout meal of protein/carbs about 1-2 hours before your workout. Also make sure you’re consuming carbs immediately after your workout. Something like a banana and/or orange juice. Then as you said, a full meal 2 hours later. If you’re really sweating during your workout…try coconut water and see if it hydrates you better (headaches can be caused by de hydration).

  • Simple modern is an amazing water bottle too. It keeps your cold drinks cold for 24 hours and more. It also keeps hot drinks hot for 12 hours. So if your on the look for a great bottle I would recommend simple modern.

  • I wonder how many centuries before camelbak moves their no-tipping technology (= internal straw) from their eddy bottles to their bike bottles.

  • The nibble should not make contact with your mouth and a firm squeez will shoot a jet of liqiud straight from the bidon to your mouth, well played GCN, well played….

  • Can you show me exercises I can do that wouldn’t irritate my shoulder?
    I have dislocated it again last night from swimming. I’m scared to do anything again

    Please help!

  • “The Backwards Swig” has little to do with reaching for the rear bottle and more to do with not waving your elbow in people’s faces when riding in the peloton. That’s why so many pros use the method.

  • When friends and family crack open a can of mountain splash, I tell them it’s basically like opening 53 packets of sugar and pouring them into a drink. That’s way too much. One packet of sugar is one gram. Easy for folks to understand that way.

  • I do think preemptive hydration or drinking with certain regularity regardless of thirst helps. I can’t speak for everyone, but there are times I’ve completely lost touch with my sensation of thirst, partly due to the overwhelming options of non-hydrating drinks available to us. I’ve gone days without drinking any water because the sensation just became normal and I wouldn’t notice until I had a dry throat or headaches. So now I just make sure I have a cup in the morning and before bed at the bare minimum.

  • You’ve used the word “nipple” more times in this video than in some of the other videos that are popular on the internets. So I’m told…Though they also feature liquid being squirted into peoples’ faces.

  • HydroFlask doesn’t keep things hot long enough. I guide in an Alaskan National park. Coffee is just warm and gross b4 3 hours pass. Try a Zojirushi.

  • dude you didnt do this completely right
    You didnt include that the sugar you showed was per serving.
    These bottles usually have more than one…meaning you get MORE sugar than what you showed! AHHH!!!

  • I’m the only one in the gym without a damned water bottle. I don’t get thirsty after an hour busting my tail. Running same thing. I remember in Tucson running from the dog park on the rillito to who-knows.where and back to play with the dogs. The people there all gave me the same baloney. “What? You ran all that distance without a water bottle!!?” Well, yeah. They weren’t runners, of course, but they had the same idea. 8 glasses a day? Maye two. I do prefer water over sodapop and “aguas” (it’s a Mexican thing here), and drink beer and wine and coffee. In the morning, usually a carrot juice. I haven’t shrivelled up yet, at 66, and having trained the equivalent of 4 times around the equator of planet Earth. It’s hype, and it sells water bottles and pollutes. Cheers.

  • it’s comments like these that keep me doing what I do. thank you for taking action on my advice… get ready for a long/healthy life 😉

  • Matt sticks his tongue out as far as possible going to get a drink. Is that like using your pinky to find the table when you set down your tea?

  • I see that one plus sticker in the back, what phone you got? I’ve had every single one plus. But anyways how long it it take for it to arrive, just ordered mine

  • these athletes didn’t die of over hydration, they died because they were stupid enough not to listen to their own body and instead listened to the hydration BS you are talking about. Question: Have you or do you know anyone who drinks 8 glasses of water each and every day??? I never have. And are these people still alive and fine??? So everyone know this is BS, athletes (who should know better) who don’t have a right to kill them selves if they want to. Hardlopers doodlopers.

  • Wish you had brought up leak-proof. A lot of backpacks today (2020) have eliminated water bottle pockets from the outside of the bag so the bottle goes inside the pack. Leak-proof is key for me.

  • I notice a significant difference in my recovery time during wind sprints when I have drank plenty of water throughout the day. Up to a gallon before exercising

  • Brad I add lemon and unrefined sea salt (REAL SALT) to my water when I am working hard. I dont like coconut water, I think it is a marketing hype (over priced!) unless it is raw and pure from the source. The sports drinks should never be used, they have dyes and actually do more harm than good. I grab those from people and toss them. Clean your toilet with it, yucky. You can make a homemade “sports drink” like I do, you can use any juiced citrus plus salt.

  • Not sure I entirely agree with “drink when you’re thirsty”. I don’t know if it’s just me but sometimes it’s not obvious when your body needs fluids, at least until you go pee.

    I’ve actually heard from somewhere that the average adult typically needs about 2 L of water per day; the 8×8 rule is just something easy to remember…. Anyway, here’s a good recommendation instead of hearing it from Adam Ruins Everything:

  • I prefer the insulated ones! However, I have eyes on some smart ones! I couldn’t pick one so I made a video about my Top 3 Water Bottles on Amazon! Which one would you suggest? I really can’t decide!

  • Nalgene and Klean Kanteen all the way! Nalgene is basically indestructible, I’ve had one of my bottles for 18 years. The only downside is the crappy lids, but again, the replacement only cost $2 and duct tape and Spectra cord work great too.
    Klean Kanteen doesn’t taste like metal, can take a billion beatings (two years of adventures and still going strong), is lighter than hydro flask, and also is cheaper.

  • thanks for the compliment. there’s really not a time frame that justifies having a sports drink or not. You can get a killer/intense/sweaty workout in that only lasts 30 mins when replenishing electrolytes is necessary. And yes, replenishing potassium can help prevent muscle soreness.

  • Throwback to when Jeff made this video two years ago, made fun of Asian people and changed the title to the modern year for extra views ��

  • I’ve been using a very similar Nalgene bottle with a different lid very good but having to hold the lid out of the way is annoying:) small issue though

  • I believe vitamin water is owned by Coca-Cola they should be blank…blank…. I believe it’s 42 grams of sugar but I can’t remember and love the young kids are drinking this thinking it’s good for you these companies are unbelievable

  • My understanding is none other than Sean ‘The King’ Kelly perfected the use of the Fakey (if not invented it). And used it to gain a psychological advantage over his rivals on hot long days in the saddle!

  • Lately i invented the the Bidonblaster:
    take a sip, let the bottle slip when puting it back tho the bottlecage so it enters the spokes. The rider behind you will ride through a fine mist of electrolytes witch will be absorbed by the skin. ( i realy tried it, no harm to weel and friend)

  • Eh, I only drink when I’m thirsty and that ends up being maybe 2-3 cups a day. While I’m not dying, I’ve woken up more than a fair amount of times in the middle of the night/early morning and nearly fainted in an attempt to make it to the fridge for something to drinkgod forbid I have to use the bathroom first or I’m guaranteed to spend ten minutes on the floor being nauseated and overheated waiting for my ears to stop ringing. Believe from experience that it’s prolly safer to advocate for everyone to drink a little more often than what they feel is necessary than to give the OK to only do so when you feel the need. It’s not exactly an easily learned habit later in life..



    “Father, I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have separated me from you. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward you. Please forgive me, and help me avoid sinning again. I believe that your son, Jesus Christ died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen”


  • Water or natural juices. Juice has sugar but atleast it’s not refined. Of course I don’t mean Minute Maid. I mean real 100 % real juice brands

  • Idk about science but one time at summer camp a kid suddenly collapsed and we thought he was joking around cause he was that kinda guy but when he didn’t get up he was rushed to the hospital b/c we were at 10000 feet above sea level and he was severely dehydrated so yeah that was fun (not trying to refute what he’s saying I just thought the story was fun)

  • the best thing to drink in any high intensity workout is REBOUND FX by youngevity. I recommend everyone check it out, especially you brad.

  • When you drink water you gain water weight. That’s why these runners gained weight. But if you regularly drink large amounts of water you lose water weight because your body knows it doesn’t need to hold on to every drop.

  • I know the app also has water reminder feature. This application has an easy to understand interface, calculating the amount of water to drink and remind users.I love it, simply because it’s easy to use.

  • the food/drink companies are responsible?
    That sounds a lot like what we hear about so many other food and drink related “myths”
    we see a lot of pushing towards plant-based foods, even though the human have eaten meat for a million years. and why?
    Coz plants are cheaper and easier to produce long-shelf life food from, which is also (science proves this) more addictive than a steak.
    And now they say it’s for “saving the planet”… but we need animals to prevent the top soil from becoming useless in 50 years. and that would mean no more plants either.

  • I didn’t have enough characters in my previous post but I wanted to say it. Brad thank you seriously for everything you put out there. You seem passionate and really caring about people. It’s refreshing to watch your vid. You’re all lucky to follow you! I wish you the best on your different personal goals… yours to are important:P Take care, lots of luv xxx:)

  • And, on average, the human body can survive 3 days without drinking. Three days to realized you’re dehydrated, and believe me, you’ll know you’re dehydrated.

  • when i was a kid my mom told me that radio shows used to host contests where whoever drank the most water would win but they had to stop because people were dying from it:/

  • For spinning class in conjunction with p90x chest/shoulder workout, I usually drink the taste nirvana coconut water. Taste great and hope is good for me?

  • Not saying they’re wrong at all, but the picture is pretty complicated. The main reason we hydrate is so we don’t dehydrate; obvious AF, but why do we dehydrate? It’s as much to do with activity as it is a lot of other things, including diet. With the diets we currently have, we consume way more salt and other substances than we need, and the result is the body needs to purge it more. And we’ve gotten into the habit of drinking stuff other than water, convincing ourselves this is hydration. It’s not; many things we drink commonly (coffee, tea, sodas, alcohol) actively dehydrate you more, as they contain substances (alcohol, caffeine, sugar) your body does not want in high quantities. We may be drinking more, but we’re likely still not drinking enough water. Dehydration becomes just one problem; you face problems like renal failure, kidney stones, pancreatitis, hormonal imbalances, high blood pressure etc.

  • Hey Matt & Dan, my team and I at Travel Kuppe created a vacuum insulated cycling bottle! It’s going on Amazon’s Launchpad platform in about a week. We began the project a few months ago from an Indiegogo campaign that raised $35k. Check us out!

  • The takeya costs 60 euros!!! Are we crazy? how in the hell 60 euros haha you said 20 bucks and i got excited…
    But too far from reality

  • It’s what’s known as “variety” people. They are serious when they need to be and hilarious the rest of the time. Don’t change anything guys!

  • excellent video. what about training in hot environment (around 113F) sweating is real easy and moderate 45minute exercise will make you soaking sweat so what do you recommend in this environment (I usually drink water only:) ). thanks

  • I would say a person never needs to drink Gatorade, Powerade, etc.. which is what he’s talking about, but doesn’t want to say because he’s commercial and they aren’t paying him. Those drinks have far too much sugar in them, and one thing he doesn’t mention is they can contain dangerous ingredients like aspartame and sucralose. They’re not science experiments, as he put it.. They’ve been using them for awhile -doesn’t mean they are good for you. They aren’t good for you.

  • it’s hard for me to assess when I’m not there with you. Best to check with a physiotherapist for a full assessment so you don’t irritate it even more.

  • You can get a 6 gallon container of Powder in water and buy a $35 dollar double wall insulated Water Bottle. Keeps your stuff cool much longer.

    Pods are too much honestly.

    Unless you bought it for the status/coolness factor?

    Then that’s cool too.:)

  • The last one seems to have a lot of benefits my only complaint is that IT LOOKS LIKE SHIT! The looks are so garbage I am quite sad as I wanted to buy it.

  • Have you tried the Coleman Autoseal Stainless steel bottles? They seem like the best option for the price and I never see anyone mention them.

  • Thanks very nice of you to say! I love what I do and I’m determined to hit my Transformation 10,000 mission. Keep spreading the word 😉

  • I smashed 20 powerade in one week..4 a day..ended my week in the hospital with a blood sugar over told me I should have been in a coma!!

  • My hydro broke after a month and it never kept things cold or hot the ice would immediately melt after two minutes. I bought a stainless steel bottle from Starbucks and it hasn’t broken after two years and it also keeps ice solid for a few hours.

  • How bad is Gatorade Zero? I ask because I drink it when I’m on Keto, especially in the morning. It keeps the brain fog/low carb flu away it helps Tremendously! I love iced cold water, especially with lemon juice, but the electrolytes in the gatorade zero just make me feel better.

  • Nalgene’s is not “made with really thick plastic” but something called lexan. Why is this important? Because lexan is UV stabilized and can handle temps up to 270° ; that means it can be put into a pot of boiling water if you’re camping and want to heat up the contents. Lexan has been an industry standard plastic for commercial kitchen use. Just a small blurb that gives the Nalgene better dimension.

  • So, just letting you guys know, I took this advice and only drank when I was thirsty. I ended up going to the ER for dehydration. Pay attention to how much water you get per day!!

  • you want a simple carb (fast acting sugar) after your workout…such as fruit, fruit juice, or even sugar if you had a really tough workout

  • This sounds bad but i hate drinking water. Because to me water even bottled water tastes like dirt metal and flavored water tastes bad to me.
    i just like drinking milk and juice.

  • Spoken by an athletic couch potato… Look at the scientist they have on here… She looks unhealthy… Oakland University??? LMAO

  • This was really informational. You know that gatorade powder you get in the can, it that the same as the regular bottle sugar wise?

  • im trying to buy one from australia but usa doesnt ship here so now i have to go through the trouble of finding a mail fowarder. so annoying man

  • would be appropriate to replenish your electrolytes in this case…go with coconut water or sport drink if you’re really sweating heavily.

  • Another plus for nalgene bottles is that if they do break, you can just email the company and they will send you a replacement for free.

  • Here’s some science on hydration and cramps: Of the 7 individuals who had EAMCs in both trials, exercise duration before onset was more than doubled in the carbohydrate-electrolyte trial (36.8 ± 17.3 minutes) compared with the hypohydration trial (14.6 ± 5.0 minutes, P <.01).

  • Sorry, but more than one doctor has told me that muscle cramps are caused by dehydration. I’m severely diabetic, which means I am in a constant state of dehydration due to high blood sugar. Believe me, it sucks! �� I drink water and sugar-free sports drinks all day long and if I skip them, I start getting leg cramps. It is completely connected in my case.

  • @anabolicaliens What’s your opinion on this drink containing the ingredient MALTODEXTRIN?

    which is known to cause spikes in a persons blood sugar. Basically it’s high glycemic. So for those that are diabetic. Even though this drink contains zero sugar, the MALTODEXTRIN would be considered harmful to one with diabetes. So therefore how is this drink really helpful to someone who’s trying to rid their body from high sugar properties? ��

  • It’s crazy, again I’m lost on a subject and you post a vid! You rock! So, I have a question: When I do intense HIIT for like 45min to an hour, I drink water and sometime I have an orange aside (advice to get energy) but I often have headaches and feel really tired like 2hours later. I hydrate a lot and drink a protein shake after the workout. I eat diner like 2 hours later. I’ve been told to drink half orange juice+half water with pinch of salt, thoughts? Coconut water would be best? Thanks!Luv

  • Nice review! Checkout our TEST, when different insulated bottles got destroyed by 2019 Ram Rebel to see which one is actually usable after that

  • I have a few RTIC water bottles and I think they are great value. Not as expensive as Hydro flask with losing only slightly less performance.
