Yeah that's actually key. you can help with staying hydrated by first being hydrated. Good suggestion.

Also if you feel nauseous it's a super bad sign.
A couple games ago I had a blast. 6 hours in the sun, just a poptart and a granola bar in my stomach and a canteen of water for the whole day. By dinner time I was so fucked up I couldn't even eat despite being ravenous. Thank god for beer...a little liquid bread helps. Actually serious about that. I've seen it done after triathlons. Mind you that was like 1989 - haha.

In the most extreme cases of lots of sweating/loss of electrolytes, gatorade will not replenish all of them. Basic sports drinks only have salt, poweraide has a bit of potassium.

You also need magnesium and calcium... in extreme cases, I have supplement tablets for the rest
interesting, I didn't know all that. Have any suggestions that encompass all those nutrients in one drink?
Here we are again bro -just you and me. Same kind of moon same kind of jungle. Real number 10 remember? Whole platoon, 32 men chopped into meat... We walk out just you and me, nobody else. Right on top huh? Not a scratch... Not a fuckin' scratch... - Sgt.Mac, Predator
