im cutting on the CKD currently. i usually refeed from saturday morning untill sunday night. the question is, do you guys know of any full flavor soft drinks or juices that dont use HFCS (High fructose corn syrup) as the sweetner? that stuff is crap and its in everything! Damn that Sh*T straight to He*l.

Nope:)

You could make up some Kool-Aid or something similar using dextrose to help get in the amount of carbs that you need.

Well 100% fruit juice does contain fructose (not HFCS) and I believe Gatorade contains HFCS as well.

When refeeding you want to take in some fructose to help refill liver glycogen, but I would be careful not to go overboard. If you are consuming simple carbs that contain sucrose then you are probably getting enough fructose as it is.

thanks brad...i checked on the gatorade and its main sweetner is sucrose syrup/glucose syrup, no HFCS(in the ones i checked), but on the other hand...Powerade has it listed as their #1 and only sweetner. P-ade is crap!
