Just wondering if anyone has heard of this nutrition method to help boost metabolism and drop weight... In Bicycling Australia Magazine, Aussie cyclist Nathan O'Neill wrote a short piece about this thing called the drip. It is basically a mix of Maltodextrin and protein in a 4:1 ratio. About 24g of Maltodextrin powder is mixed with 6g of a whey protein isolate in a 500ml bottle of water. He then apparently drinks approx 10 - 12 of these a day. A normal diet is also eaten in conjunction with this "drip". Is there anyone who has heard of a similar method being used and if so, does it work, are there drawbacks, side effects etc? Sounds very interesting but also risky. Thoughts, comments?
