Protein! Water!: A preference is for a flavorful whey protein shake with berries, after rehydrating myself!

The rehydration suggested by Dr. Namey is exceptionally important and often overlooked. If you are not urinating in large volume of clear colored urine within 30-40 minutes of stressful exercise, you are not drinking enough.
