    i went down to the local safeway to buy some powerade/gatorade and the gatorade propel fitness water. i usually bring a bottle with me to the gym while doing my lifts. when i was purchasing my drinks, the lady told me i should only drink these liquids when im sweating (basically if im working out in any way). she told me some story about how someone has had an bad health condition (heart shock?... she told me heart failure or something with the term 'shock')...because he/she drank so much gatorade and didnt work out. *im just thinking to myself, maybe that fool was just some fat man who trashed his body and tried to blame gatorade for his fatty health issue(s)*.


    can someone chime in and explain? im assure gatorade/powerade would never damage your body... its basically water/sugars?

    i guess if you drank A TON of it the electrolytes in it could fuck with your system....but for any average activity level person that wants to drink it will be fine

    Yeah I take nutrition advice from the uneducated minimum wage cashier at Safeway. When I need investment tips I also head down to the closest gas station and ask the attendant there which stocks are hot.

    yeah gatorade and all those drinks are just water with sugar and salt/sodium(electrolytes) you would have to drink literally gallons and gallons of it to really mess you up....but combining it with a high sugar and salt loaded diet will only help perpetuate health problems caused by too much sugar or salt in the diet.

    but any halfway active person with a half way healthy diet has nothing to worry about.

    this reminds me perfectly of the homeless in d.c., they're always reading the paper and all sections: the front page, the classified, the business section! what are they, checking up on their mutual funds?!
