Recovery Drink -WARNING!

I was searching for the recipe for that recovery drink i mentioned in that last post and found this as a warning about using any recovery drink (emphasis mine):

You don't need to use such a recovery drink after every workout; only after those that include a significant amount of high intensity or those that are 60 to 90 minutes or longer. The more fit you are the longer the workout, which triggers the need for such a recovery drink. After short and low intensity workouts you can make the homebrew drink without the glucose. Be careful using this recovery drink when you don't need it as the high glycemic load is likely to add unwanted pounds of body fat.
