A great tasting energy source that includes electrolytes for optimal hydration, amino acids to reduce muscle breakdown and caffeine in some flavours for increased focus.
There are only 100 calories per packet, yet I burn through 100 calories in 10 minutes. Shouldn't I eat more than one every 30-45 minutes*
We limited consumption to 100 calories because, in general, the body can digest roughly 350 calories per hour during exercise. If you tried to eat more, the body would divert blood from your muscles- say 'buh-bye' to a personal record-to handle the excess food. If your metabolism is slow, then one GU every 45 minutes works fine. If you have an athlete's metabolism, try ingesting one every 30 minutes and see if it agrees with you.
How do you eat GU Liquid Energy*
Rip open the top and squeeze the entire packet into your mouth-don't save half of it for later (it'll get messy). The recipe of electrolytes, carbohydrates and amino acids was created to be taken in one shot to provide you with maximum benefits.
How should you use GU Liquid Energy to help you recover from hard training or racing*
When you stop, go ahead and eat a pack, even if it's been less than 30 minutes from your last shot. Now that you've stopped exercising, your stomach can handle those calories and needs them to start restoring your muscle glycogen-essentially the body's instant fuel reservoirs.
