I drip profusely too - but less since my fat layer went down.

Are you rehydrating during the workout? Maybe a litre an hour?

Possible you may need more sodium while working out too - "To achieve sodium replacement through the sports drink, the formulation might taste more like seawater than a sports drink." from http://www.faqs.org/sports-science/P...t-Tablets.html (wfs).
