I am slowly increasing my milage as a recover from a recent injury and I'm starting to look at energy drinks. I have tried a few in the passed but they have all been so sweet tasting. Are there any less sweet ones out there?
The general concensus regarding Lucozade
And why would you want a 'lite' drink - chemicals instead of fructose/glucose yum not.
Just use water - add a little fruit juice of your choice and a little salt. Make it tatse the way you want. All drinks are too sweet imho - they just pander to the masses, no wonder the nation is getting fatter.
Save your pennies and make your own - orange juice seems to be a fav. I like plj.
alcohol free beer.
No i am not joking.
Has carbs, and fluid.
I have used it when out on looooong training runs before recent injury. Go into a pub, packet of crisps, and a becks blue or whatever....lovely.
I make my own - half apple (or other juice) half water and 4/10 tsp salt. 500ml water/500ml juice.
Or Taut drinks are not sweet and contain all natural ingredients. I can't get these where I live any more.
Tried Gatorade the other week as I got it in a goody bag from a race and it was surprisingly OK. Don't think it has any nasties in it and isn't sickly sweet.
