We really have to endure thirst? Or do we satisfy it with “hypertonic” drinks ?
If so, what are your methods?
Today I tried a method that I read here, I think that Oldmate has suggested it, I took a few sips of water and then spit it, I tried it in the early afternoon and it worked … But then, after sweating due to various businesses, I had terrible thirst and drank a lot, it was also the time when I have the highest temperature, after 6 pm.
In the past I tried to drink small sips, but then it still took me a terrible thirst.
How did you do it?August 18, 2013 at 6:16 pm #11691OldMateParticipant
I was washing my mouth out sometimes only during the initial few weeks of refeeding when the stress response was consistently activated giving me an extremely dry mouth. I dont need to do this any more
If you are thirsty you should drink something. As your temps / metabolsim rise you will actually need more fluids. I guess its about finding a balance and what works for you.August 18, 2013 at 6:34 pm #11692
Thank you old mate. Well my temps are “good” in the afternoon, but not in the morning. Then I’m not sleeping enough, but I think my metabolism rised up, in fact I sweat a lot, particularly in the face, and I feel to need more liquids… The problem is the morning temp that is stuck and lately a more frequent urination, due to lack of sleep, I think. I already open a topic about the frustration I feel about this, now I will see how it will go with more sleep. But I want to know the strategies you used or are using to manage thirst and liquids. :-)

From a thirst perspective I have noticed that If I have a drink between meals It gives me a dry mouth and I feel thirster. But if I drink with a meal I don’t get that. Maybe you could try having some more fluids with your meal? Also for not I am only really drinking soft drink or milk, sometimes OJ with added salt.
I seem to be the opposite. i urinate less in the morning, and more later in the day without drinking much at all. I am wondering if it is the compensation effect Matt talks about. I need to fine tune and find a way to balance it all out :)
My temperature is rising very slowly but I am noticing my body is beginning to handle fluids a little more.
slowly slowly…. we have to be patient. IT will all work out :)September 14, 2013 at 8:23 am #12600
My coach-trainer give me this advice to control thirst: eat a slice of lemon with salt. It can be useful to someone. Give it a try if you need! :DSeptember 15, 2013 at 8:23 am #12626AmabelParticipant
I eat oranges with salt, but then, I could eat 3 oranges at a time… (I usually don’t though…).
