Challenge to "accepted" wisdom on hydration
I came across this article today on the BBC news website.
I think it is an interesting article that it challenges (for me anyway) the assumption that you need to keep hydrated especially if you are doing a lot of exercise. I must admit I tend to keep a bottle of water with me most of the time largely as I tend to spend a couple of hours a day doing cardio plus weights in the gym. It's also worth pointing out that it tends to get filled with tap water.
It is also bad news for the "sports" drinks industry that seems (at least in the UK) to try and convince us that their "isotronic" drinks are better than water.
Interested if anyone has any strong views either way or knowledge of conflicting research.
