Jeremy, "I don't normally drink sports drinks. I mainly just drink lots of water, sometimes coconut water, and smoothies....For soccer, I eat something light like a healthy sandwich, lots of bananas, smoothies, and protein bars." Beth "Do you know about electrolytes?" Jeremy, "Yes, electrolytes include vital elements your body needs like sodium and potassium."What's your health tip for athletes?
J, "Don't forget to cool down and stretch after games as well as before them. Athletes often forget or are too impatient to commit to a proper cool down after games or a work out, but a few extra minutes can save you a lot of soreness later and keep you on top of your game."
