    Hello,
    what do you think about Avocado juice as a source for minerals and Amino acids - during long rides (3-5 hours) ?
    Thanks!

    i've no idea if avocado juice is a good source of minerals and amino acids, however, more to the point, why would you want that type of drink when you'd be far better off with a drink that contained adequate carbohydrates (6-8% solution) and plenty of electrolytes.

    Well, I found that avocado contains except for all the minerals also all the essential amino acids ** that are required too – correct ? (not sure though if the AA quantities are substantial /sufficient)
    ** See: http://www.nutritiondata.com/facts-001-02s01f8.html ..

    If this does work (.. a little squeezable bottle with SALTED avocado juice), then one is free to drink what one really likes;

    Speaking about amino acids, what is your opinion on preparing a drink with a ratio of ~ 4:1 carbs and Whey ? (or just having some whey DURING the ride) ?

    Thanks.

    again, why do you want such a drink when training, as it is carbohydrates that are important during exercise (and at other times)?

    why do you want protein during a ride?

    Interesting...

    Ric -

    Have you read slow burn by Stu Mittleman? He has the credentials to prove his point. Having run over 1000 miles in 11 days and also 2927 miles at a daily average of 52.27 miles.

    Obviously he is a record holder. Take a look at his diet.
