During training, for each hour of exercise activity, use at least One or Two scoops in 8 oz to 12 oz of cold water.
For Triathlon: A 150 lb triathlete needs at least 200 calories per hour of activity. On an average at least 1,200 calories for a 70.3, or at least 2,400 calories for an IM distance. One scoop of Carbo-Pro provides approximately 100 calories of energy. You may carry it as a concentrated gel or in separate bottles, OR you may use the CarboPro 1200 which fires on all Four cylinders.
Carbo-Loading: Perfect for carbo-loading; for 4 to 5 days leading to a Race, take One or Two scoops in a glass of water, twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening. Increases muscle glycogen stores and helps with Hydration.
1 scoop of Carbo-Pro = 0.88 oz or 25 grams = 100 calories (approximately)
Carbo-Pro is a free-flowing powder with low density. The 63 cc scoop (inside container) holds approximately 0.88 oz (25 grams) of Carbo-Pro. One scoop provides approximately 100 calories. Therefore One Serving (Two scoops = 1.75 oz or 50 grams) provides 200 calories.
One Serving (2 scoops), or 1.75 oz (50 grams) represents theoretically as much carbohydrate content as 200 grams of cooked pasta; or as much as 425 grams (almost One lb) of potatoes.
