 Ingredients List

  • 2 tb Sugar
  • 1/8 ts Salt
  • 16 oz Prepared caffeine-free lemon
  • -tea
  • 2 oz Orange juice


Dissolve sugar and salt in the hot tea. Cool. Blend the tea with the juice
and refrigerate in your water bottle, or freeze. Can last in a sealed
container up to one week. 9 oz serving equals 60 calories and 15 g of
carbohydrate. From Shape magazine.

leeway: I use apple juice, or any fruit juice available. Orange spice tea
is delicious, gives it some kick. I generally adjust for taste, but you
don't want to load up too much sugar to spike your insulin levels.
Inexpensive alternative to sports drinks for casual workout days.

I call this Carbo Load. It is a fluid replacement product.
