no doubt about it, but since you are into bodybuilding too, why not have something that is better for both your hobbies. also a little yoghurt would be good t0o :t

My older brother, a SCUBA convert, is all about pre, mid and post dive snacking. Occasionally he talks me into drinking some gatorade or some such thing. Back in my earlier days I even used to leave and go to subway in the middle of a 9 hour dive session.

I have on all occassions that I have consumed anything pre or mid dive experienced horrible debilitating heart burn. Even when I only drank some gatorade. With regards to this, it is very much possible that I have acid-reflux disease. Due to my diet, however, inspite of taking no medications, I experience no heartburn under normal circumstances.

Consequence of compression?

one of my dive buddies is also one of those adventure race guys. You know, those guys who do offroad triathalons like canoeing/moutain bikes/climbing or such. He alway brings loads of the power bar gel packs. The vanilla is the bomb! After about 4 hours of hard diving hit one of those and youre good to go. They are pure, but balanced, carbs. Just what a body needs for sustained activity. I would save the protien for after the dive as it really isnt doing you any good during the day...carbs are what you need during, protien after. Unless youre Island Sands...sounds like she is in desperate need of an all day protien marathon:mad:
