Last Saturday I played 7 sets over 3 matches (4.5 level) in fairly good heat (about 95 degrees here in AZ) and over the course of those 7 sets I consumed 7 of the 32. oz Gatorade bottles.
7 x 32 = 224 ounces.
16 oz. in a lb = 14 lbs.
After I came home and took a shower I weighed myself and I was only 1 pound lighter than the night before (I'm weighing myself once a day now as I'm trying to lose weight). I'm fairly overweight (5'9" and 230 lbs) so I don't know if that had anything to do with it or not but like I was saying - just thought I would share those numbers as I was pretty surprised at them.
that just means you lost a lot of water, nothing to do with calories
