Hydration: Choosing Drinks Based On Your Goals: 1 Red, 1 Yellow, & 3 Green

So far in your hydration journey in this series, you learned about the green “drink more” category, the yellow “drink some” category, and the red “drink less” category.

You also learned about plain water, sweetened beverages, carbonated beverages, tea & coffee, dairy & plant milks, recovery & performance drinks, alcohol, and which drinks are in the “drink less”, “drink some”, “drink more” categories for each of those.

Recently you learned whether the proportion of ⅕ yellow “drink some” with ⅘ green “drink more” may work for you.

Today’s episode talks about ⅕ red “drink less”, ⅕ yellow “drink some”, ⅗ green “drink more”. For every 5 drinks, having one in the drink less category, 1 in the drink some category, and 3 in the drink more category.

This proportion may work for you if:

  1. Most of your drinks currently fall into the yellow and green categories.
  2. You’re training for a major athletic event, like an ultramarathon.
  3. You want above-average health, body composition, or athletic performance.

Future episodes will talk about other proportions, a daily drink intake that works for most, adjusting for your preferences and lifestyle, and more.
