Tailwind Nutrition – Tailwind is designed as a “complete fuel” containing a full complement of electrolytes and calories. The easiest way to wrap your head around Tailwind is to think of the 3 components of your fueling strategy: calories + electrolytes + water. You are expending 500+ calories/hr, but in general you can physiologically process only between 200-300 calories/hr. The goal is to stave off the depletion of your glycogen stores through a combination of what you are consuming, your fat stores, and anything else it can convert to glucose.
