    coconut water...primal?

    Primal Fuel
    I know that coconut oil is primal , but what is the verdict on coconut water in the stores? Live in the UK and have seen a product called ZICO coconut water, any ideas ?

    If it is the liquid from the coconut then it is primal, but it is also high in sugar, so depends on what your current goals are, if you are lean as you want to be and using the energy in HIT then it fine, in fact I think Mark suggested it as part of a energy drink for training at one point. I am a bloater with 2 stone still to lose so I would only have it occasionally when we get smart price coconuts from asda, and it would be shared with the family (to be honest I find more than a mouthfull to sweet anyway now)

    I like to take it on my long runs in my camel back. If you mix the plain one with lemon lime nuun electrolyte tabs, it tastes like Mountain Dew soda

    The chocolate zico is to die for, especially with some coconut milk or cream.

    I tried Zico....I thought it was disgusting. The real coconut water from an actual fresh coconut is much better tasting, one of my favorite things to drink occasionally.

    I drink vita coo a few times a wk when I need some extra calories or carbs. On tough workout days I try and drink it as well... Witt that said, I usually only drink about half a small carton at a time. Costco actually sells them now! Much better price than buying individually!

    I use it to replace electrolytes, but only during the summer because I sweat and drink a ton of water, so it depletes the minerals.

    Sometimes you can get Coco Vita 12 packs at Costco for something like 15 bucks in the US. I have no idea in the UK.

    Just make sure you check the ingredients.
