"You do need electrolytes, but not through a sports drink," Kimball says. "You can get them from a KIND bar, half a turkey sandwich, even a fold-over peanut butter and jelly sandwich has natural sodium. V8 juice or coconut water are natural sources of electrolytes, and coconut water has a lot of potassium."
Frozen and low-fat yogurt
Remember how froyo was cool in the 1980s, then it sort of died out, and then a bunch of chains named after berries and fruits brought it back, and everyone was like, "Hey! This tart, unflavored frozen yogurt MUST be good for us, because it tastes like nothing!" Yeah, no.
"Sugar is still the drawback," Kimball says. "The tangy flavor doesn't seem as sweet, like chocolate or vanilla, but it's still just as high in sugar. Four ounces of frozen yogurt has about 100 calories. Four ounces of Blue Bell ice cream has 170 calories. But you aren't getting 4oz when you go to a frozen yogurt shop. That larger amount is around 500 calories."
