My instructor frowns upon drinking during class, and even discourages drinking right after it. Since I sweat quickly and allot from every cell on my body (except armpits and palms, strangely), I usually get so dehydrated that halfway into class I'm exhausted and gasping for air. So I asked him why he discourages drinking. He gave me several health and training reasons, and suggested I eat some watery fruit after class instead of drinking.

The next class I came prepared with a banana and a tomato, and ate the tomato before class. and BY GOD did it change my life. All of a sudden I could breeze through the class, working hard as usual, without losing my breath or needing a rest. Same thing happened the next class - Interesting what a tomato can do.

No kidding? Have you read anything on this? I've never heard of such a thing, but you've got me curious. May have to give it a try!
