Are whey protein isolate powders safe to drink if I drink lots of water with it? 1.4 liters - 2 liters a day of water, 1 protein shake after gym.

Probably.: Protein shakes can be problematic for people with kidney problems or who don't stay well hydrated. So long as your urine is light in color or clear, and you tolerate the drink (no gut symptoms of allergy or intolerance), it's unlikely to harm you. Be careful of calorie content in your shake, though; some are surprisingly high in unnecessary sugars. ...Read more

I workout 5 times per week (weight lifting). Is it safe to me to drink one rebull with no sugar after each workout ? (I eat also post-workout meal).

I workout 5 times per week (weight lifting). Is it safe to me to drink one rebull with no sugar after each workout ? (I eat also post-workout meal).

You don't need this: I work out 5-6 times per week too. The main ingredient in Red Bull is the caffeine and sugar, unless the sugar free one as you take. People take pre-workout drinks for the " kick" it can give your workouts. It would make no medical sense to take a caffeine hit at the end of your workout. Take the protein meal instead. ...Read more

Does adding 1cap lemon juice per 12 oz h20 make my h2o a diuretic/hinder weightloss? I Hate h2o but try to drink 200ounces/day. Lemon helps taste.

Does adding 1cap lemon juice per 12 oz h20 make my h2o a diuretic/hinder weightloss? I Hate h2o but try to drink 200ounces/day. Lemon helps taste.

No, and too much H2O: Adding a cap of lemon juice to a bottle or a big cup of water will not change anything in the body (compared to drinking the water without the lemon juice). Also, 200 ounces of water a day is too much water. That 200 ounces is over 1.5 gallons... more than any normal person would need. If truly needing that much water, a doctor can help find the medical reason why. ...Read more

Would chugging a 16.9 oz. water bottle in about 40 seconds lead to water intoxication?

No: It would take a larger amount of water to lead to significant electrolyte abnormalities. It would depend on your size and your present state of hydration and gain how quickly you drink excessive amounts of water and we are talking liters. Most people can eliminate 1/2 liter of water an hour. So the amount would have to be much higher then that ...Read more
