Our expert says:
Feeling dizzy after a cycle could be for a number of reasons. From a nutrition point of view, I would first consider dehydration or under consuming carbohydrates. Dehydration can cause a decrease in blood volume and circulation of blood which may result in light headedness and diziness. The effects of this may be made worse by a drop in blood sugar (glucose) levels if inadequate amounts of carbohydrate were consumed on the cycle. It is unlikley that the new drink caused you to feel light headed, however it is recommended that you consume a carbohydrate based drink containing 6 to 8% carbohydrate (i.e 6 to 8 g carbohydrate per 100ml).
