PS: My sister is dietician, not me. I don't pretend to give diet advice without consulting her first.

This recipe has been advice to me, from a French sport dietician, to do before your hard week of training. No need to eat weird or to sweet produce made by supermarket. They are great and good value but probably to sweet, here in Australia! I live in Sydney where it's sunny and hot! You don;t want to eat to much sugar otherwise, you will become dehydrated to quickly! You need to be careful also with your energy drink! I drink water, and if I want to be make it useful for my race, I personally use Barocca, or French sirop with salt! I don't buy any special drink, water should keep me going for 1 hour effort.

In the other hand, my recovery drink will be sparkling water from the supermarket, less than a dollar for a litre. Magnesium and minerals are what you need for a good drink recovery.

Check this table below to compare with your article from the supermarket.
