I like using UCAN before a big workout to get fueled without a heavy stomach. I have the UCAN bars at the end of workouts to curb my carbohydrate cravings and the UCAN Hydrate for electrolytes in my day-to-day training. UCAN is part of my plan to change my metabolism before race day and become better at burning fat.
