6 Nutrition Bars Pros Fortified with a variety of minerals and vitamins Lightweight, easy to pack, convenient, portable for long activities Can be used as a “supplement” to an overall nutrition plan Energy replenishment Helps enhance muscle glycogen repletion after exercise Cons Not regulated by the FDA Won’t necessarily improve performance Will not magically help you loose weight Tend to be expensive Possible added supplements like caffeine, ephedra or other herbal stimulants Highly fortified bars can cause gastrointestinal distress Not a meal themselves

7 Sports Drinks 3 Categories of Sports Drinks: Hydration Drinks Energy Drinks Recovery Drinks

8 Hydration Drinks Purpose is to get fluid in quickly Have a low carbohydrate content Have a high sodium content and electrolytes to correct dehydration Useful for shorter periods of exercise, for pre-race hydrating, or for maintenance of hydration (but not energy) over a longer time period Keep your blood glucose levels constant if sipped at regular intervals ( Isotonic properties) 6 to 8% of glucose is the appropriate content for a hydration drink Small quantity of salt Can be consumed in lower quantities than water while hydrating evenly

9 Energy Drinks Designed to primarily replenish lost glycogen and to provide immediate or rapid blood glucose Compromises hydration for energy Usually contain vitamins, amino acids, large doses of sugar, and about as much caffeine as a cup of coffee Not to be consumed during exercise because the caffeine and high sugar concentration slow the body’s ability to absorb water "They are a stimulant more than they are energy.” Good for long efforts such as Iron Man or marathon but one must still hydrate himself with other hydration fluids

10 Recovery Drinks Designed to rebuild glycogen in the depleted muscles and liver as fast as possible after exercise They contain the proper elements of any proper recovery protocol: carbohydrates, protein, fluids, sodium and potassium Restores electrolytes (sodium & potassium) lost during exercise, helping to avoid muscle cramps Contain rapidly-absorbed carbohydrates that reconstitute your glycogen and branched-chain amino-acid reserves to help restore muscle tone and mass

11 Sports Drinks Pros Customized to your needs Have many purposes: hydration, recovery & energy Exist in MANY flavors Cons Negative effects when diluted (ex: Vodka- Red Bull) Expensive Compromise some benefits for others (ex: hydration & energy)
