EDIT: Never mind. Apparently I won't get my question answered no matter how it gets asked.

Nowhere does it link what she did to the ACSMs guidelines. How do you know she was aware of them at all?

And again what is the point of this? What are you going to do about it?

It is clear what the point is. Greg's original post said:

"It's time to drive Big Soda out of fitness and by extension, the health sciences."

If you want to know how we're going to accomplish that, watch. The global CrossFit movement, and the accompanying overhaul of a multi-billion dollar industry, began with a blog post.

I anxiously await the downfall of Gatorade.

I'm more of an iced tea drinker anyways.

Blaming Gatorade for over hydration deaths to me is like blaming crossfit for rhabdo deaths.

i wonder when we will get the warning about drinking the kool aid?

if i have to choose between kool aid and gatorade i think i will go with gatorade. though, i never really liked gatorade anyway because it isn't zone and it's athletes are all non-elite specialist in leagues like the NBA and NFL.

i wonder if any athletes associated with reebok, espn, rogue, etc are sponsored by gatorade? or any other drinks or supps owned by "big soda"? i wonder if someone sells gatorade at their box if they will lose their affiliation? sometimes i drink chocolate milk post-WOD that is made by Nestle, does Nestle count as big soda? anyway, I anxiously await the coming revolution and can't wait to see what happens next.

Curious as to if Pedialyte falls into this catagory? For hydration I prefer 16-20oz of that mixed with some BCAAs and glutamine for my drink of choice.

Thoughts?

Got the idea from here....

With an n=1, and all the weight that carries, pedialyte worked for me. Playing multiple full rugby games at tournaments in hot weather, I used to get terrible cramps(quads, hamstrings, calves, all at once a bit after matches). Pedialyte helped a lot, as did another product, called Gookinaid back then, now rebranded as hydralyte. More lytes, less sugar than Gatorade.
