Although during the mentioned diet no competition was undertaken in MMA it is still vital for him to replace lost fluid with his rigorous exercise regime. I recommend on the days that he exercise's to drink one more pint of water than usual on top of the RNI of water to replace the fluids and avoid dehydration and heat exhaustion. To avoid de hydration during any of his exercise sessions I recommend that Christopher drinks a couple of mouthfuls of water every 10 minutes to avoid the feeling of thirst, as our thirst system is very badly developed, when we feel thirsty we are already around 2% dehydrated this does not sound like much but it is enough to impair performance and distract Christopher from training sessions. Following the above advice will allow Christopher to maintain hydration which can in turn help him to keep his training session duration more regular as dehydration can lead to irregular durations of exercise. ...read more.
