Once I started looking deeper into nutrition, I realised that I was drinking around a third to half the calories I was burning by having one of these sports drinks. Whereas water was zero calories. It was a no-brainer really.
Then from starting up my blog and delving into the HLB community and #fitfam community of Instagram, I was introduced to coconut water.
Now after working out I nearly always grab some coconut water to hydrate and replenish my electrolytes.
I didn't actually like coconut water when I first tried it, but then I started using it in green smoothies and after that I was able to drink it. I do prefer the flavoured varieties to the plain if I am drinking it straight.
I'd tried a few brands of coconut water, but had never heard of Chi until they contacted me and asked if I'd like to try some of their products.
The company sent me a few flavours to try, I really loved the natural coconut water and mango and the natural coconut water and tropical fruits.
What I liked about Chi's products is they didn't have an overpowering coconut water flavour, which some brands I have tried have had. Their beverage is light and refreshing.
I loved the handy 330ml bottles they sent me, these were perfect for grabbing out of the fridge straight after I'd got back from the gym.
Chi coconut water does come in large cartons as well as small ones.
Their beverage is also low in calories, coming in at 25 to 60 calories per 300ml bottle.
Chi are offering to give one of my readers a month's supply of their delicious coconut water!
