I sent the wife ouit today to replenish my supplies of Rego Recovery which I have been using for some time as a post run carb and protein boost.
She went to a specialist sports shop and was persuaded to buy a big tub of CNP Pro fuel by the guy there who said it was the same, and "all the runners use it, and skateboarders too"
Not sure what the skater dudes have got to do with it .....or why they need carbs but there you go!
I've had a read of the label and the only way it differs from Rego is:
It has 95g or carbs instead of 62g per 100ml.
It has no protein content at all, and no sodium contant at all, whereas the Rego has 26g and 2.9g respectively.
Rego also has 1.7g of fat and the CNP none.
My question is has anyone else tried / used this and what are your thoughts?
I was under the impression that a good recovery drink should have some protein at least? A google search suggets its marketed for those lookign to boost calorific intake and gain weight - which I'm not, (cant say for the skaterboys though).. however, its has just about the same calories as Rego.....
Has the wife beedn fobbed off with a load of tosh from the bodybuilder chap in the shop, or is this stuff any use to runners?
