    Pre-Workout Drink for Low Carbers/Carb Cyclers?

    I ran into this thread called "Jungle Juice" in the Recipe section.. I was thinking of using this minus the creatine and whey for now. When I low carb I feel alright energy wise as long as I'm fed and not over/under doing the fats. I want something that is going to give my muscles what they need to go through the work out.

    So will a 3.5x serving of gatorade powder be enough for a pre-workout drink for a low-carbin' mofo?

    2 scoops whey
    5g creatine (optional)
    What do you all think if this mix? Im gonna try it, I dont have the best mix (Lime gatorade, Chocolate Whey, and Fruit Punch creatine, mmmm!)

    That blows even the biggest low carberers out of ketosis..... What is your definition of low carb?

    Why remove the creatine and whey? 3.5 servings of gatorade is tons of carbs.

    Powdered gatorade works great. Try out different amounts till you find what works for you.
