Charlene Cassie, sports nutritionist at Run With Us Online explains that with all the added sugar in sports drinks, it's no wonder that, despite all the hard work, some athletes still struggle to cut body fat. According to a recent article on ‘about health.com’, many “sports drinks advertised by famous athletes contain high levels of high fructose corn syrup, brominated vegetable oil and artificial colours”.
Charlene believes that taking nutrition back to basics and consuming foods in their natural form is essential for a healthy, balanced lifestyle. So, rather than buying the ready made stuff, maybe try one of these 7 homemade sport drink recipes that will still provide all the benefits without all the added nasty ingredients.
