Sports science minor and nutrition major…?

Hi everyone, So I’m having a little trouble makng a decision. I’m thinking of changing my major and obtaining a Bachelors of Science in nutrition. Thing is, I want to get a minor too and I’m not 100% sure how that works out…before I talk to my advisor I want to know. Do certain minors only work with certain majors? Like…would I be able to get a job if I had my BS in nutrition with a minor in sports science for example?

What sort of sports nutrition should I be using to regain my strength?

I’m female, 5’4, 115lbs, 26 years old. I used to be moderately active; I walk a lot, and jog and/or cross train 1 to 4 times a week.

But a year ago I go sick with a mysterious infection, then had surgery. I’ve been recovering very slowly, with good days and bad days when it comes to energy. My doctors have advised me to start slow and workout when I have good days.

I have a pretty healthy diet, mostly veggies, whole grains, occasional meat, plenty of water, iron supplements, and a weakness for desert. But my infection left me with IBS and fructose intolerance, so I have to be careful with what I eat.

I’d like to add sports nutrition, like protein shakes or something, to help me rebuild my strength faster. Any suggestions of where to start? What should I be looking for?

By the way, I’m not trying to gain or lose weight, just trying to get back my strength and energy.

Home-made sports drink?

I’m sick of drinking just plain ol’ water on the way to work. I’m tired of paying for soda’s and powerade’s as well for the energy boosts while at work after the ride. I want to start making my own homemade sports drink.

What is the proper sugar to salt to water combination? What is the proper carb, salt and potassium levels for an effective homemade sports drink? Any recipe suggestions? Can using too much sugar or too much salt cause diarrhea? (last question is mostly for preventative measures)
