Woman measuring her waistline, text "Diets and Fueling the Active Individual"

The word “diet,” by its definition, describes any food that a person consumes. A diet of Cheetos and soda is still, by definition, a “diet.” But over the years this word has come to represent the idea of losing weight, and often using some sort of restrictive eating plan. We dive into the ins and outs of these popular diets, and what might be the best for your individual needs.

Osmolality is a measure of the number of dissolved particles in a solution. You can think of it as a fancy word for the concentration, or density, of a fluid. Scientifically speaking, the osmolality of a solution refers to the concentration of osmotically active particles in that solution. Osmolality is a function of the number of particles and is not related to particle weight, size, shape, or charge. Almost every fluid has an osmolality above zero — Except for distilled water, which has been processed to remove all other substances or “solutes” from the water molecules.

My race got cancelled, now what?

By now you’ve probably had a race that has either been postponed to a later date this fall or otherwise cancelled until next year's event. For me, 2020 was supposed to be an exciting year of racing as a member of the USA Paratriathlon National Team as a guide for blind triathlete Brad Snyder as we looked to qualify and race at the Paralympic Games in Tokyo. Just like the Olympics, the Paralympics were pushed back a year to 2021 along with most (potentially all) of the ITU races this year.

here’s no doubt that we are living in unprecedented times due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our lives have drastically changed over the past week or two with races being canceled or postponed, our kids’ schools closing down, and the challenge of trying to navigate working from home while figuring out your and your families’ new daily schedule. Many of us (including myself) were gearing up for our first big “A” race of the year only to hear that it had been canceled. This leaves us with a lot of uncertainty, asking ourselves questions like, “When will my next race be?” and, “ Is that one going to get called off too?”

Custom Protein Boosts

Let’s face it. There are A LOT of protein powders and supplements out there claiming to be the secret to performing better, losing weight, living forever or any number of magical effects. It can be pretty confusing, and sometimes overwhelming, to know what product will really help reach your goals and which ones are just smoke and mirrors backed by baseless claims.

The REAL Cost of a 5 Hour Workout

Andy Potts on bike, text "The real cost of a 5 hour ride"

Here at INFINIT Headquarters, our team of formulation specialists talk to a LOT of people throughout the year. One of the biggest “complaints” we hear is that INFINIT (particularly a custom blend) is kind of expensive. When, in reality, when you compare it to a fueling strategy that uses gels, chews, salt pills, a bar or two, and a commercially available sports drink, INFINIT is not any more expensive—and in a lot of cases, actually LESS than—the combination of all that other stuff.

Calculating Your Sweat Rate

Woman drinking water, text "How to Calculate your Sweat Rate"

Sweat rate is a critical piece of information for athletes, and it is actually fairly easy to figure out. But this relatively simple data point can have a major impact on your performance. Studies have shown as little as a 0.5% loss of body water can cause increased strain on the heart, and as little as 2-3% of total body weight can cause declines in performance.
