Noakes is a veteran of more than 70 marathons and ultramarathons, and his book Lore of Running (Human Kinetics, 2003) is considered a classic by serious distance runners. However overhydrations is a growing problem, is very serious to one's health and likely to remain a problem in the running community heavily influenced by the sports drink industry.

In Waterlogged, Noakes sets the record straight, exposing the myths surrounding dehydration and presenting up-to-date hydration guidelines for endurance sport and prolonged training activities. Enough with oversold sports drinks and obsessing over water consumption before, during, and after every workout, he says. Time for the facts and the prevention of any more needless fatalities.

Since Noakes began his fight, the American College of Sports Medicine has changed some of its guidelines, but he wants more. We called Noakes to talk about his ideas for the new rules of hydration during endurance exercise, which he points out are actually old rules. Why write this book? I had a responsibility. In the book you mention humans suffer from hyponatremia because they haven’t evolved to drink these large amounts of water.

Timothy David Noakes (born 1949) is a South African scientist . Waterlogged: The Serious Problem of Overhydration in Endurance Sports (2012).

Timothy David Noakes (born 1949) is a South African scientist, and an emeritus professor in the Division of Exercise Science and Sports Medicine at the University of Cape Town  . The HPCSA held a hearing about the allegation against Noakes over the next few years. Controversially, on 28 October 2016, the HPSCA incorrectly released a statement announcing that Noakes had been found guilty of misconduct.

In Waterlogged, Noakes sets the record straight, exposing the myths . This is a serious book for the extreme athlete; mountains of data are provided. However, this book "Waterlogged The Serious Problem of Overhydration in Endurance Sports" is a real eye opener and without a doubt the most extensive book ever written on the subject.

Waterlogged: The Serious Problem of Overhydration in Endurance Sports outlines practices that endurance athletes should follow, variables they should consider, and guidelines they should use in maintaining proper fluid balance in sport training and performance

Waterlogged: The Serious Problem of Overhydration in Endurance Sports outlines practices that endurance athletes should follow, variables they should consider, and guidelines they should use in maintaining proper fluid balance in sport training and performance. For more information, see Waterlogged. Known throughout the academic community for the high-caliber nature of his scientific insights and work, Dr. Timothy Noakes is Discovery Health professor of exercise and sport science at the University of Cape Town in South Africa.

Waterlogged is the culmination of work that Noakes began decades ago, when he became the first health care professional to expose the dangers of too much fluid ion-and exposed the problem of hyponatremia (low blood sodium)-in athletes. Exercise-associated hyponatremia (EAH) is a potentially fatal condition associated with the body’s hormones, causing water retention and severe sodium loss. It can develop during or within 24 hours of racing (or training).

Waterlogged : The Serious Problem of Overhydration in Endurance Sports. For sport science devotees at all levels, and those who love to just go for a run, Dr. Noakes' book is the ultimate combination of scientific rigor and practical advice. A must on every athlete's bookshelf. By (author) Tim Noakes. Finally, an unbiased look at fluid replacement: the real science behind thirst, fluid balance, and thermoregulation during exercise! Waterlogged is a must-read for athletes, coaches, parents, and sports medicine professionals.

“Drink as much as you can, even before you feel thirsty."  That's been the mantra to athletes and coaches for the past three decades, and bottled water and sports drinks have flourished into billion-dollar industries in the same short time. The problem is that an overhydrated athlete is at a performance disadvantage and at risk of exercise-associated hyponatremia (EAH)--a potentially fatal condition.

Dr. Tim Noakes takes you inside the science of athlete hydration for a fascinating look at the human body’s need for water and how it uses the liquids it ingests. He also chronicles the shaky research that reported findings contrary to results in nearly all of Noakes’ extensive and since-confirmed studies.

In Waterlogged, Noakes sets the record straight, exposing the myths surrounding dehydration and presenting up-to-date hydration guidelines for endurance sport and prolonged training activities. Enough with oversold sports drinks and obsessing over water consumption before, during, and after every workout, he says. Time for the facts—and the prevention of any more needless fatalities.

I am an Ultrarunner for over 10 years. I do training in hot summers, often running 20 miles on difficult trails that take close to 4 hours. I have been running without taking a water bottle or taking salt supplements for the last five years or so without any ill effect. After reading this book, I know why a little dehydration never hurt anybody! This book is just the right one for any ultrarunner who is simply curious about the science on hydration. The book is not a self-help book for the recreational runner who runs less than a couple of hours in a single run. The book is heavy on science with lots of charts, graphs and references to scientific literature. The book is somewhat verbose and at times repetitive. However, I found it engaging. After the first read, I come back to it again and again and reread some snippets. It will become a valuable reference for any serious runner.

Dr. Noakes, himself an ultra-marathoner, takes on the establishment, the big sports drink industry and refutes with solid science the prevailing dogma and mythology of hydration. First he establishes with evidence that humans are evolved to withstand severe dehydration without ill effects. Then he traces the history of research on the role of salt in dehydration and muscle cramps. Then he recounts the history of Gatorade and sports drink industry and its powerful influence on the academic researchers and running authorities. He also touches lightly on the influence of glucose and carbohydrates on performance. But one should not rely on this book on that subject, since the focus is water and salts. Finally, he devotes nearly a third of his book to the problem of overhydration with scores of case studies. At times he shows genuine contempt and anger at the sports drink industry and sports authorities. Though he doesn't directly accuse, but does somewhat implicate the advertisements from the sports drink industry for the deaths of runners due to overhydration. The sad part of these stories is that the runners followed the advice in those advertisements!

In the final chapter, Dr. Noakes summarizes his findings and recommendations. Dehydration was never a problem, is not a problem and is not likely to be a problem in any modern organized endurance sport. However overhydrations is a growing problem, is very serious to one's health and likely to remain a problem in the running community heavily influenced by the sports drink industry. His simple advice is to drink water when you feel thirsty and don't over do it.

DISCLAIMER: During my many years in Cape Town (South Africa) I had the honour and privilege of knowing Dr Tim Noakes personally and attending many excellent physiology lectures and tutorials given by him. Dr Noakes is a true scientist who continually questions the prevailing 'wisdom' (sometimes dogma) of contemporary exercise physiology. His novel ideas, backed by solid scientific research and thorough analysis, have often been considered heretical but later become all or, perhaps at least, part of the answer e.g The 'Central Governor Model' for fatigue. Unlike the Central Governor Model, though, the evidence supporting the conclusions reached in Waterlogged is more 'watertight" (excuse the poor pun) and likely at this stage to be marginally less controversial. I suspect that if it had been possible to publish "Waterlogged" a decade ago it would have also have been considered heretical by many experts in the field.

Please read the reviews of E. San Miguel & M. Nir which accurately describe the book and with which I agree entirely. From my perspective as a elite-level triathlete in the late 1980's, I fell for this idea of 'over-hydrating' and did in fact drink gallons of the South African equivalent of Gatorade (Energade) as well as water and/or Coca-Cola. However, I too strongly disagree with the reviewer who said it is for the serious athlete only - This is a thoroughly interesting read for any thinking athlete who has more than a passing interest in science and its applicability to the human body under 'exercise' conditions.

If you are an endurance athlete, you need to read this book. In it Noakes challenges the conventional belief that you should not loose water weight during exercise for max performance. He points out that this conclusion is based on erroneous science and is totally bogus since the fastest runners typically loose the most weight during endurance events! While Gatorade scientists claim that they could have gone even faster if they had hydrated more. Noakes' points out that certainly the athletes who are the fastest would be most eager to gain a performance edge. According the Gatorade science, if they would have only known to drink a few extra ounces of Gatorade to maintain weight during competition they could be setting world records! How foolish of these athletes! Of course this argument is totally bogus and has never been proven. Noakes goes into the science behind it all in amazing detail. Muscle cramps, sodium tablets, heatstroke, he covers it all. Oh and if you were taking sodium tablets like me during marathons to prevent cramps go ahead and chuck them. Sodium supplementation has never been shown to work and it may even make your problems worse since your body has to process all that extra sodium and use its precious water resources to do so. If you are a salty sweater it is evidence that you have too much salt in your body and your body is trying to get rid of it. Your body amazingly maintains its sodium balance even on very low salt diets for months on end. Loved this book! Buy it if you like challenging conventional wisdom.
