1) Dear Alice,
I am a soccer player who is extremely active and drinks lots of water. I am wondering, for my sake, whether it is better to drink cold water or warm water. While we all like cold water better, I was wondering if because of the fact that your stomach is a lot closer to body temperature than the temperature of most tap water, that it would be better to drink warm water. I thought this because it seemed like your stomach would be able to handle it a lot better. Thank you for your time.
What's the best thing to drink before a workout? After?
How soon after eating should workouts begin?
I know that when working out or doing physical activity, you should drink a fair amount of water. I drink a lot of diet soda (used to drink a lot of regular soda), as much as two liters plus in a day. Is diet soda an okay replacement for water? If not, why?
Is eating glucose based food good for you before sports?
(1) Dear Alice,
Is it better to eat before or after exercising? I've recently started a fitness program and am not sure which way is the best.
(2) Dear Alice,
Is it bad to eat before you have practice or a game in basketball?
