Recovery food and drink questions

Recently I had a great weekend with extreme physical exertion. The problem is that I was physically
exhausted for several day afterwards. Most of the soreness faded within 24-48 hours but I had a
difficult time completing my normal workout for about 5 days.

I think I need some type of recovery food, but not sure what would work well.
Also, I need suggestions for overall energy boosters, not just with workouts but with everyday
life. What would help my overall focus, alertness and energy (no drugs please)

Any suggestions?


Sincerely

CE

Endourox works pretty well for recovery.

You probably don't eat enough during your workouts. After the first hour I aim for 200calories and hour. An average sized man should aim for 300cal/hour.

The fuzziness tends to be from eletrolyte depletion.
