On most days when I don’t work out, I’m doing 100% Soylent 2.0 (2000 calories), which I guess gives me only 65% of my recommended daily sodium. On workout days, I do the same but also throw in some food right after: usually a 200-calorie pre-made Muscle Milk, a 210-calorie RX Bar for extra protein, and a sandwich. (Open to suggestions about all of that; I don’t necessarily know what I’m doing.)
For a few reasons, I think I’m not getting enough electrolytes when I work out. I don’t want to mess with sugary sports drinks, I gather coconut water is too low in sodium, and I’d love to get as close as possible to exactly what I need, no more and no less.
Should I just add salt to my Soylent? If so, how much?
Are electrolyte tablets worth it?
Whatever it is I go with, when should I do it in relation to a workout? Before? After? Both? (Preferably not during, just for convenience, but I’ll do what I’ve gotta do.)
Any better options I haven’t thought of?
