I like snow and more snow for you guys sounds terrible. Fingers crossed for you.

If you have nothing to do, I recommend you watch this gem of a 2000 Disney Channel Original Movie: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D5fgjSLz02E

A friend just posted it on Facebook, and while I have a crap ton to get through today at work, I really, really want to relive this...

My lab results came back from my doctor yesterday. .. how the heck does someone get an electrolyte imbalance in the middle of winter?
Well, anyway that's what i have. Specifically my sodium is way low. This might explain the nausea and other unpleasantness in my life the last few months. :?:

Hard to imagine that someone who lives in the US, with all the salt-laden food available, could have a low sodium level.
Hope your doc has you on the road to health in no time. Will there be a new diet for you?

I had this years ago when I was working out at a near professional level. There wasn't a diet change involved. I remember there being a lot of different reasons for this happening, or could be happening. It was interesting.

I know, right? And I eat stuff like potato chips and other salty foods too, though not to the extreme. :?:
No new diet... my doc just said to replace some of the plain water I drink with electrolyte beverages. Then I went on a mad search for electrolyte drinks with no sugar or chemicals. The only one I could easily find was some stuff I ordered off Amazon.
I do exercise, but not like a fiend, so not sure why this would happen except I have a pre-existing GI problem that might be a factor.

Computer crashed and for some reason, Premiere Pro hadn't autosaved the video I was working on all morning that is due tomorrow. :)

I'm gonna throw everything out the window. :)

I thought of Smart Water initially and I will probably try it. It has about 1/2 the electrolytes of most of the other sugary stuff...

There's also no sodium in smart water and that's electrolyte I need. I found the same problem with vitamin water zero. I chugged a bottle yesterday and then looked at the label: sodium 0mg.

Argh!

Maybe I'll just drink table salt and water... yuck! That's depressing...

HEED also maybe? I used to use that when I ran more.

Gatorade makes an Endurance brand that a lot of people I see use.

No idea of the chemicals in them though.

Thanks Som... that one looks like it'll work. The stuff I ordered from amazon looked good too. One of those will do it I think!

IIRC, before Gatorade came along, sports teams would take salt pills to offset electrolyte loss during training (also called sweating). :o :lol:
I know it probably isn't that simple...maybe more a case of figuring out how you can help your digestive system absorb the electrolytes that you are consuming?
Good luck.

The R.W. Knudsen juice company makes a natural sports drink with sodium and no added sugars.

The Knudsen drink still has too much sugar for me, but thanks.

Thanks for all the suggestions you guys. I'll work it out somehow.

I think the worst thing about social media is the rise of the BeachBody crap.

What crap. Starvation diets don't work.

I work downtown, so I have to drive some older, narrow streets to get to work. I got nearly run off the road into some trash cans this morning and it knocked my passenger mirror off and smashed it to pieces. HATE HATE HATE. HATE.

I'll be interested to know what you think of it. Always in the market for that sort of thing.
