Exercise and Summer

Exercising outdoors can be refreshing and fun but it can also cause problems if you do not follow some simple rules.

Make sure you are drinking enough water, about 16 ounces every 30 minutes, before, during, and after exercise.

Some sports drinks such as Gatorade have special ingredients that help replenish fluids to prevent dehydration.

After Exercise

When you have completed your exercise regimen, instead of eating carbohydrates, grab some fresh fruit or water.

The reason is that for a minimum of an hour after exercise, the body is still breaking down fat.

You need to allow the body to finish doing its job.
