Home made sports drink?


Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm just starting out (on day 4) and I just have a question.  I do quite a bit of cycling (usually at least an hour a day 4 or 5 times a week) and I usually sweat quite a lot.  Before starting this programme I made my own sports drink that consists of coconut water, V8 juice or fruit juice, water, a teaspoon of honey and ¼-½ teaspoon of salt. 

 

I know that honey is out, but is it OK if I omit the honey and just make the drink from coconut water, juice, water and salt?  I read that V8 juice and fruit juice is allowed but it should be used to flavour things rather than drunk by itself.

As long as the coconut water and the juice don't have any non-compliant ingredients, everything else looks good (without the honey as you said). Might need a smidge more juice to counteract the saltiness if you're used to making it with honey. 

Thanks, the coconut water definitely is, it’s listed as 100% coconut water in the ingredients and I believe that v8  juice is listed as compliant.

I always use cocunut water for this, it is a lot healthier.
