From now on, I'll be using coconut water (from O.N.E.) as my sports drink before/during/and after training and racing. Coconut water has more potassium than a banana, has natural sugar, contains a similar amount of electrolytes as those found in our blood, and other numerous health benefits. It's nature's Gatorade.
As an athlete I'm extremely conscious about my nutrition, making sure that everything I eat has a purpose for helping me as I go into a workout as well as recovering/building. With this switch, I'll be able to keep my "diet" free of any added/refined sugar :)
