  • Crystal lite- 2 days before a comp?

    Just wonderiing what some thoughts are on using crystal lite in your distilled water the last couple days before a show. According to the package there is no sodium. Any feedback is appreciated. THanks

                having never competed, my knowledge is somewhat limiting about contest prep . i understand that sodium content is to be kept low, but seriously i didnt realise it was so strict that you need distilled over normal water. Does tap water have significant levels of sodium in it??

                  tap water in some parts of the country has in excess of 600mg of sodium per liter....( water from home water soften systems have 300mg sodium/liter )
                  with almost 4 litres to a gallon, drinking 3 gallons of water per day would have you consuming upwards of 7 grams of sodium per day.......

                  NO GOOD for the last few days

                    cheers boss, learn something new everyday

                    Does that mean you have to buy water, or distill it yourself??

                        i dont see the need for distilled water the last week of the show... to me its pointless, but i guess its good for others... i do well on spring water... i also drink crystal light all thru my contest prep, i just take it out the last week before the show...

                        are u in ur last week rite now? are u still drinking crystal? how are u looking? go by the mirror...

                          Well I had switched to distilled water tuesday night. I did have some crystal light made with distilled water wednesday but mostly just distilled. I cut the major consumption out thursday night but I still had about 700mls up until 2 pm friday.
                          Turns out it worked out great cause I won the light heavy division (197) and the overalll. First prize....All inclusive trip for 2 to Mexico. I'll post some pics up in the next couple days.
