How Issy fuels
"When I train early in the morning before work or an endurance workout and I can’t eat a full meal I use a scoop or two of UCAN energy powder mix in my breakfast bowl or mix it with some coconut water".
"During a 2-3 hour session work out, I mix 2-3 scoops of unflavoured UCAN energy powder mix and sip throughout my first and second training session".
"love how it keeps my energy stable and find my energy increasing during my workout rather than decrease (like when I eat fruit)".
Why Issy uses UCAN throughout the day
"I eat a bit of a higher fat diet to keep inflammation down and is better on my digestion. I have many food intolerances so finding a carb powder was difficult. Having the plain ucan is perfect because I can trust the ingredients and know what’s going into my body".
