oooh yay!!!! i can share my experience... When i started , i was always sick... I get heatstokes very easily, and tried many combinations.... I even got water intoxicated once, oh yeah, it happens.... So here is what i do now, and i've been heatstroke free ever since...
I try not to drink the night before, but that's pretty much a big fail, so that one, i kinda let go...
On the drive there, i always stop at tim's and get a giant coffee and a yogurt... Why the yogurt you say??? To keep me from having to dig a hole and go #2 in a game... It works... Never had to...
I fill up my back pack with 1l water and a big bottle of gatorade... Just the gatorade is too sweet, and the water by itself is not good for me, so i mix it up... Always have some more water too, cause, well, it does get empty... But only water once cause me to have water intoxication... how did that happen??? I dont usually drink much water, and that day had about 6l... My body was not used to it, so it reacted weirdly... Confusion, dizziness... weird feeling, but since i added the gatorade, i am doing pretty well...
I eat jerky, dry fruits and nuts... Lots of it...
And now, i have those electrolytes stuff i buy in outdoor shops... Jizz in a pack, is how i call it... Its fast, weird tasting but keeps you there...
Last summer, since the water incident, i did not have one single stroke... It took me about 3yrs to get it right... But its a matter of finding the good combo... and the camelback is awesome, cause its always there.... so i drink more than if i had to open a bottle everytime... Hope this helps everyone...
