I like it, nice and low in carbs.
I buy the 800g tubs of Endura, had it recommended by a physio after I buggered up my knee through running etc a few years ago. She also suggested that I give up running and take up cycling so she can't be too far off the mark.
The 800g tub costs $39.95 at Fitness Attack Bulk Store on Anzac Hwy and makes about 11 litres of drink, around $3.65 per litre.
Mike how many gms carbs / 100g ? doesn't show on the website. Just curious, I've been told to steer clear of most hydro drinks because of sugar levels.
H2O is the way to go!
I'd like that on a jersey.
Matt, no mention of carbs as such on the pack and its certainly not a sweet taste, only additional info on the pack is ...
ENERGY: Each dose provides 375 kj (90 cal) of energy.
I wouldn't mind seeing someone who can explain the contents doing so or providing a comparison.
some sugars are not sweet.
golden circle do a sports drink that is on the cordial section of the supermarket.
the powder ones are convenient if you can carry some in a small container and mix it as needed.
Price can often be a poor indicator of quality.
however wen there is no other indicator (people cant tell the difference) people often use price as a proxy indicator of quality.
while sports drinks have their place if you are trying to lose weight you would be best to drink water as well.
medicine is not a precise science (people have different genetics) and they also exercise in different environments.
Hydration requirements will be different between summer and winter for instance.
Diabetics need to motioner their sugar and exercise more carefully than the rest of us.
there is no magic one size fits all answer.
water from the tap is cheapest.
if other drinks give "value" to you is a personal thing.
$3.65 a liter is not that cheap but it is still cheaper than flavored milk or soft drink
Flavoured milk or softdrink are junkfood! Put them in the bin as they will do nothing for you!
As a Litmus test, give a child that is not often exposed to any of those drinks some! See the results for yourself. They go nuts, the sugars and all the stuff we can't(well me anyhow) pronounce that is piled in those drinks will do nothing.
Genetics aside, after much reading and searching and trial and error.
Get rid of chemicals in your life, your body was never designed to absorb them.
Grab some fruit as I mentioned above or put some almonds and dates in a bag in your pocket and munch on that and see for yourself.
Drink water, lots of it.
Those of you with dry or bad skin, put those water and chemical based creams in the bin. Drink water and fix it from the inside out.
Skin can't absorb water which is what most cream are made of, the rest is a chemical cocktail.
