We all know rehydrating is a major #key to success. Many athletes turn to Gatorade because it does a good job replacing electrolytes, carbohydrates, and fluids that are lost during a workout.

Unfortunately, the bad outweighs the good in Gatorade. A regular bottle contains 56 grams of sugar (that’s like taking an actual shot of sugar). All that sugar can add up, especially when you don’t actually workout. Luckily, homemade sports drinks are easy to make and just as tasty without all the added nonsense.
