- Optimum Usage - HEED
Usage Instructions - HEED
HEED may be used as the sole fuel during exercise lasting up to two hours, fulfilling all of your calorie and fluid requirements and most-to-all of your electrolyte needs.
One scoop of HEED contains 100 calories.
Suggested Doses by Body Weight*:
|Up to 90 lbs
(Up to 41 kg)
|0.5-1 serving/hr||50-100 calories|
|0.75-1.5 scoops/hr||75-150 calories|
|1-1.5 scoops/hr||100-150 calories|
|1.5-2 scoops/hr||150-200 calories|
|2-2.25 scoops/hr||200-225 calories|
*These are estimated doses. Each athlete should determine in training, under a variety of conditions, their personal optimum.
If using more than one fuel, be sure to combine all of the calories from all of the products consumed to reach a correct total hourly intake.
Mixing / Usage Instructions
Mix 0.5-2.25 scoops (see chart above) of HEED in 16-28 ounces (approx 475-828 ml) of water. Sip continuously during exercise.
When training sessions or races go much longer than two hours, select either Perpetuem or Sustained Energy as your primary fuel source. In these instances, HEED can still be used intermittently for variety as long as your total hourly caloric intake does not exceed your trainingdetermined maximum.
Each scoop of HEED contains the equivalent amount of electrolytes as one Endurolytes capsule, one scoop of Endurolytes Powder, or one-half tablet of Endurolytes Fizz. For many athletes, under normal conditions, one or two scoops of HEED will completely fulfill electrolyte requirements. When heat stress increases significantly, you will need to consume additional Endurolytes.
