12 fl oz (one bottle) of Gatorade = 21 grams of sugar
Yes, a sports drink may replenish fluids after a hard-fought game or intense workout. Thing is, sports drinks tend to contain way more added sugar than is needed to properly hydrate. If you’re not reaching for this after a serious sweat session, then put it back. That way you can spread your daily sugar-spend around, rather than guzzle it down in one big saccharine gulp. Sports drinks don’t have to be outlawed entirely, just limit them to post-exercise times and be sure to spot-compare the sugar counts on the bottles. (Many brands have lighter versions.)
