sure. The high GI carbs from the sugar will also help to fuel your workout, and even spike your insulin for your post WO protein shake .

You can also try crystal light or the the generic version kroger makes that i think is the same. no sugar and only 5 calories per serving.

gatorade was designed to replace fluids, electrolytes and sugars during workouts. it does a good job of that. if you want, you can dilute it 50%, which obviously gives you 1/2 the caloric density

I tried having a peach juice diluted 50% with water. The sugar taste disgusted me. Plain water all the time for me. Maybe a sip of gatorade AFTER workout before getting home and having the protein shake.Originally Posted by jjjd

Sorry to bring up an old thread but I'm guessing that gatorade or powerade would not be good sources of water throughout the day right? I should just save the powerade for during and after workouts right?

doesn't powerade have high fructose corn syrup in it?Originally Posted by gnat1000

It's better to have a couple gatorades vs. having a couple beers or sodas but I wouldn't use it as a water replacement drink.

but is it still good for use during workouts or would water be better?

I would find a better product than both actually. Water is fine and gatorade is fine...Diluted gatorade is cool too. Really depends on your preference unless you're such a finely tuned athelete that you need to make all minor tweeks.

You should look into some workout formulas if you have the money to spend. There are some great products out there

I've personally tried the Xtend and the Excell. The other two have good feedback.
