I dropped the news last July that I was an Enthusiastically Depressed Cyclist.  Yes, I told the world I suffered from depression, and was at one of my all time lows.  During this period, I was definitely not Loving Life….on or off the Bike.

So, what did I do?  Well, a few things…..and today I’m Loving Life as much as I ever have.  I hope this episode of Loving the Bike TV helps you get there as well.

Enjoy Your Ride

Sugar Alternatives for Energy and Hydration

Question: I am using the homebrew sugar formulations (sometimes added to green tea).  I am also trying to wean myself off 1/2 dose adrenalean “lip tonic delivery system” (biorhythm brand- caffeine, hoodia g, synephrine, yohimbe) capsule for energy.

My question is other than juice, can you suggest modifications in lieu of table sugar for energy and hydration.

Answer:

Both raw/organic honey or agave can work great in the homebrew (substitute in the same quantities for the sugar, or to taste), but you do have to shake well in order to make sure they don’t settle out.  Have you tried either of these?  Also, make sure to use at least the minimum amount of salt recommended in the homebrew as the temps rise, you need the sodium replacement if you’re sweating.
