    Should we worry about electrolyte supplementation? To answer, we’re talking about dehydration states, why you need water before sodium, and why only a small percentage of athletes need to worry about anything more than drinking to thirst.

    Hot Cakes is back! This round, Patrick presents three questions for me to respond to. We’re talking about selling the dream but delivering the basics, potential new FDA “healthy” labels, and bodily drainage.

Dynamite Dynamic

The dynamic between EC and PC is excellent. Return to the basics and stop making things complicated.

gyrod8701 ,

Thank you!

Great show. EC and PC are great together! The new hot cakes format is perfect! Recommend to everyone! Especially if love the science!

Evidence Based

You had me at Cochran review. For once I was hearing nutrition information from someone who had evidence to back it up and would also say what was good and bad about the evidence. EC keeps the advice simple while at the same time giving explanations with enough detail so you can understand why she is giving that advice. As a medical doctor I am absolutely recommending this podcast to friends, family, and patients.
