Monday Medical: Good nutrition for cold-weather exercise
Dehydration affects physical performance and the bodys ability to keep warm, increasing risk of frostbite. I think dehydration is a big problem in the winter, Marrs said. Winter hydration packs are a convenient way to carry water and snacks while skiing. Sports drinks (avoid those with high-fructose corn syrup and added colors or chemicals) can provide a quick hydration and energy boost. You can carry single servings of freeze-dried coconut water or powdered sports drinks such as Scratch Labs or Tailwind Nutrition and add them to water during a break. Fruits, vegetables, soup and herbal tea are good sources of water.

Nutrition to fuel your fitness needs
With the StoneFit diet, we offer our patients some clear guidelines to getting the best nutrition. With so many contradictory dietary recommendations and nutrition trends, many of them based on inaccurate information gained from flawed food diary surveys, its difficult to know what to eat. In contrast, the StoneFit diet is simple: focus on lean protein, fruits and vegetables. Cut back on carbohydrates, sharply reduce processed foods and avoid all sugary drinks. Combine this with a tall glass of water each hour and an hour of exercise a day. This will reduce weight, build muscle and improve health.
