Just cause they can do it doesnt mean u can.
I wouldn't suggest it but if ur gonna try it i would suggest trying it at a practice first that way u dont cost ur team a game or anything if it doesnt work.
You must have a really slow metabolism or mine just goes way quick but then again I lift weights 3x a week and hoop 3x a week with one day of rest a week so that might be why.
But back to the original question, a bit of sugar and carbs do help so why dont you just drink Gatorade or a sports drink instead? Tastes just like candy anyways.
