  • But what about heat? I only drink sports drinks when I've been in the heat all day and sweat profusely. If I don't, I get a headache, fatigued, and crabby. I know it's because I've sweated out my sodium. Then again, this is a Canadian show.

  • I did a 7 hour cycle today with regular breaks. My body actually craved fruits more than energy bars. And I only drank 2.5 L of mineral water. Next time I’ll stock up on fruits, especially oranges cos my body loves those more than muesli

  • Fuel(natural) is very important as you workout. Just remember that we all have different needs.
    Footwear is important for what workout you plan to do if you do, not have the right floor padding needed. Jumping support, I need it.

  • 3:16 I agree with this woman 100% plus I have no patience for meal prepping, cooking, chewing chicken and waiting an hour to digest the meal – a tasty 400 calorie protein bar is good enough for me now that I'm dieting and busy watching youtube videos.
    5:33 This was obviously filmed before Fit Crunch bars became so popular with only 6 grams of sugar, I'd be interested in an update.

  • At face value, a layman reader may not actually understand what, say, hydrogenated palm oil or monodicalcium phosphate is as per reflected on the ingredients list of food products.

    It seems that many of consumers really do not care about the specific contents of what they put into their bodies. Probably (even most likely), these consumers believe everything that they see & hear from the ads.

    Take the case of Milo. I saw an ad of it being promoted as a "nutritional energy" drink. But come to think of it — is it really a nutritional energy drink as the manufacturer claims it to be? Or nobody asks such a question anymore.
