I have been drinking 2 to 2 1/2 liters of water per day and hardly any gatorade and have been fine. I did drink 12 ounces of gatorade yesterday, but that was because I felt weak from too much watery output and I got paranoid. I don't want to have to go to the hospital for IV's.
I read that drinking gatorade increases the chance of getting kidney stones. YIKES, I don't want kidney stones...but, I am worried about
getting dehydrated when going back to work. The temps will be HOT, 120 degrees, on the school bus. I read that vitalyte is a great alternative to gatorade and much healthier to drink.
Has anyone tasted this? I was going to order some, grape flavor, unless somebody else has as any ideas?
Or, is pure water okay to drink? I can't imagine pouring sweat with my watery output, more than 1200cc in 24 hours, being safe without adding a drink containing electrolytes.
I bought some pedialyte and that is the most awful tasting stuff and I feel terrible for ever trying to get my poor kids to drink it. YUCK
Thanks once again, Tracy
