I got a great idea for my next marathon.

Beer. It created western civilization. 'Nuff said.

You know what else hydrates well?
 
2011-04-07 08:47:48 PM  
Problem is it looks like in the study the subjects were allowed to only have one beer.
 
2011-04-07 08:48:16 PM  
That must be why I always drink beer when I'm thirsty.
 
2011-04-07 08:48:31 PM  
That sounds a bit counterintuitive.

USA spends millions on medical research. Based on this article, it all has been wasted. Room temperature beer for the win.

You know what would hydrate even better? Freeze-dried beer.

Now, for further research!

Beer might do well after, given that this was a test in Spain, preformed outdoors, a quick football / soccer match... but what about other beverages and other activities? We'll need groups to test mead, gin, rum, vodka, whiskey, and tequila, with derivations for assorted mixers.

The final test vector will be in which beverage is best combined with which activity. Beer does better with running than plain water, but how does it stack up against loading up on vodka stingers and then having rough, gymnastic sex?

/Where, oh where, will we EVER find the volunteers?

*raises hand*

I like vodka and rough, gymnastic sex! But mostly I like science!

Finally...vindication for all my years of personal research....

Of course it does. Have you ever had a Budweiser?
 
2011-04-07 09:00:56 PM  
After a hard day of laborious work, nothing tastes better than an ice cold beer. Hell, even coors light tastes decent after a hard day of sweating.

This was actually the most serious of my suggestions, as fermented honey-sugars vs. beers complex carbs would be an easily measured test vector. The different activities bit would be the hardest to measure, as each would have to be preformed within the same range of heart-rate for the same amount of time, and a full hour / hour and a half of rough sex at a running heart rate might be a bit difficult to pull off for other physical limitations.

Mostly chafing.

And based on the study a year or two ago about how absinthe alleviates the need for steroids in IBD patients, I vow to have a glass of every form of alcoholic drink on a daily basis.

For science ... yeah ... that's the ticket ...

I run 40 miles/wk and the absolute last thing I'd want after a strenuous run is a beer.

Every techincally diuretic substance that is 99% water will hydrate you when your kidneys are still in standby from the strain of continuous physical exertion. Duh.

Article mentions neither how they measured hydration, nor who funded the research. IOW typical news reporting of "science".

People who drink two to three beers a day for many years have a 75 percent increased risk of gastric cancer


So I am safe since I have between 6 and 9 right?

Beer . . . it has electrolytes!

No, it sounds intuitive. See posts above about electrolytes.

Overhydration.

I must be special then because beer dries me out like crazy. It's like I'm hypersensitive to alcohol, because something as weak as one bottle of light beer can make me pee about a gallon within a couple hours. I swear, as a diuretic it's on par with the caffeine in a triple espresso shot. I'll get sick from two if I don't hydrate like I'm gonna run sprints in summer.

I get made fun of for it, but on the upside, my "getting drunk" budget is miniscule.

Huh. Well, I'm feeling quite parched, so maybe I'll go grab a Pyramid Curveball Blonde Ale out of the fridge.

I'm failing to see the Godwin in that image. Enlighten me?

I hate to be the wet blanket at this party, and I love beer so much that I started making it myself...but I'm pretty suspicious of a study that doesn't mention a journal and whose findings were presented at the "Beer, Sports, and Health" conference.

Try an Ayinger Brau Weiss after a long run (or bike ride). It's awesome!
 
2011-04-07 10:04:23 PM  
Well known fact for years. Back in the good 'ol days in Germany, after our morning run (Army), it was standard practice to return to the barracks and have a beer. Never even got a slight buzz off it - it just tasted good, felt good, and made the sweating stop.
 
2011-04-07 10:05:27 PM  
Both can be used to hydrate anally.
 
2011-04-07 10:13:39 PM  
I'm still recovering from last night's drinking so I would be getting a kick out of this if I weren't suffering so much.

Roto-Rot: Both can be used to hydrate anally.

The lining of one's anus is permeable like the stomach, so alcohol is readily absorbed; the downside is that, though you may think you can shiat it out, the body does not have a mechanism to rid itself of excess alcohol consumed in this manner, so the likelihood of overdosing is much higher per volume anally-funneled versus that taken orally.
