I know, I know - "water" is the best answer! And when I'm doing a whole 30, that's what I drink. But when I'm in Food Freedom mode, I'd like to have some other options. I'm trying to reduce my psychological dependence on drinking BCAAs with every workout - I've gotten to the point where I'm vaguely panicky at the thought of workout out without them!
What do you drink during workouts? Specifically:
- with/without stimulants
- with/without calories aka insulin response
On power-training days I'll have BCAAs, coconut water etc. But on low-intensity days BCAAs aren't necessary and I'd love to hear your ideas for alternatives.
Thanks in advance!
