        If you are stuffing your face with refined sugar multiple times a day, every day, then you might have some problems (the least of which being rapid aging). However, the OP is discussing drinking beet juice post-workout. Most of that sugar is going to immediately go towards replenishing muscle glycogen. Furthermore, the idea that carbohydrates as an entire macronutrient group are "teh evilz" is laughable. We've spent decades demonizing fat as a macronutrient, so to go in the completely opposite direction and demonize carbohydrates is just silly. Indigenous cultures around the world thrive on tubers and fruits, and in my own experience, I have seen zero negative effects from carbohydrate intake.

          and here we go again with the glycogen loading. oh geeze ive just worked out im gonna dye if I dont replenish my glyogen! change your enzyme and become fat adapted. relying on glycogen for your muscle contractions on slows you down, check out this video from dr. greg ellis

            Glycogen loading wasn't my point (nor do I think it is absolutely necessary- I just finished working out, and I'm in the middle of a 24-hour fast). BUT, in the context of the original post, the sugars found in the beet juice would immediately be converted to glycogen, and not have time to kick around in the bloodstream and form AGE's. The main idea that I wanted to communicate is that carbohydrates as a macronutrient group are not detrimental, and it is entirely possible to consume them while maintaining a high level of health.

              You should know that beets are literally the plant about 20% of our refined sugar comes from. There's a variety of beet called the sugarbeet (go figure) that is processed to hell and back again for table sugar. It is a very sweet plant. WHen you're drinking beet juice...you're basically just swigging unrefined sucrose. Which is fine - just be aware that that's pretty much what it is. Would it be any different from coconut water, really? Hmm, of course there are some vitamins and minerals in there too...if the industrial juicing process doesn't leech that stuff out.

              Also note, this is a picture of a geneticist whose job it is to work with beets

                Beets are in my top 3 starchy tubers I eat to support my energy needs when I train hard. Red potatoes, and sweet potatoes round out that list. I cannot recover with a low carb approach. I can lose a lot of weight but that is not what I am trying to do At this point.
                Like any kind of juice I avoid beet juice. It lacks the bulk and many of the nutrients and minerals that whole beets have. I grow them and purchase them fresh. They are easily pickled and a batch doesn't last long.
                Integrity is what we do when nobody's watching.

                  most people that say they can't train and recover low carb have never actually tried it for long enough. you have to give your body time to adapt and once it does your performance goes through the roof. it doesn't just happen overnight when you've been eating carbohydrates your entire life

                    Drinking the fresh juice of a beet or two each day is a wonderful preventative health measure, and it may help reverse many problems. For taste, beet juice can be mixed with carrot juice or apple juice.

                      Take an extremely sweet root and remove the fiber. Ya, you're left with pure unadulterated sugar.
