bro ...
Personal Training is not about only exercise but to provide useful info on healthy eating too.
Lot of professional players have this complain that they cannot eat (re fuel) after an intense workout or training session.
This is a simple way that a drink can do the refuelig.
I believe it will help them.

Oh!!! I shall ask some cafe's to add some of these in the menu dho ...
