I decided to try something new for 2010. I going to race with 1 bottle on the bike and a bottle stand. Since I'm only going to have one bottle with me I wanted a palatable energy drink that would provide me with enough calories for a race.
I've heard a lot of good thing about Hammer Nutrition, Heed in particular, so I though I'd look into that.
In Hammer's essential Knowledge section they state:
They also say:
So an athlete should drink about 1 water bottle with about 200 calories per hour is how I read that.
I order a 32 serving tub of Heed, read the side panel and a serving equals 1 scoop. Each scoop has 105 calories. They recommend
I thought a serving should be a 200 calorie bottle per hour? For a 200 calorie bottles I need 2 scoops. 32 scoops per tub, 2 scoops per bottle, equals 16 servings.
That's like selling me a single cookie and saying the serving size is 1/2 cookie.
The stuff does taste good though.
