Smart Water?


Recommended Posts

You do not need added electrolytes when you are eating Whole30-style and adding enough salt to your food when cooking to make it taste good. Vendors try to convince you that you NEED special products when you really don't. 


I was doing Bikram yoga several years ago and the studio strongly emphasized that I needed to drink electrolyte enhanced water after sessions. I checked with Melissa Hartwig and she told me I could ignore my teacher on this point, that I was fine doing 90 minutes of hot, sweaty yoga and drinking plain water. If you want something with a little extra in it during the summer, you could drink coconut water. That is expensive too, but if you were running a marathon in the summer, it might be helpful.
