recently after my runs ive been feeling low on sugar and have been drinking a can of coca cola as part of my recovery to compensate for this. I was just wondering if this was a good or a bad thing? any thought would be much apreciated, thanx
Bad for your teeth, but a perfectly reasonable form in which to take sugar
It is not necessary to let it go flat, whatever anyone might suggest.
Coca cola is absolutely loaded with suger but then again so are most sports drinks so if you're low on sugar go for it.
Personally I go for haribo star mix when I need a sugar fix.
not sure on that one foxy lady - diet drinks are supposedly worse for your teeth though so perhaps. try putting an equally dirty coin in a glass of each and compare?
gastric fluids are very acidic, so i wouldnt worry about coke dissolving your insides, i'd stick to worrying about your teeth. i enjoy a can of coke now and then...maybe just avoid drinking lots and lots of it
However, not so good for this
