It's been so hot here, I've had to up my water just to stay hydrated, and I was already at 96 ounces! Yikes. Another thing you might try is to eat a big pile of protein immediately following your workout (shakes, eggs, meat, tuna, cheese, etc), that's when your body needs it the most. I'm female, so naturally live in a state of no-T, and that extra protein boost has made a huge difference in my muscle tone. And the more muscle tone you have, the easier your body burns fat. Also since you've lost 50 pounds you may want to look at how many calories you should be getting, the smaller you are the fewer calories you burn in your workout, so you may need to cut back your intake by a couple of hundred calories, or up your workout time, just to keep the loss going in the right direction.
