Sports drinks are a waste of money?

Hello everyone~!

According to an article I read, looks like those Gatorades and Powerades and all those other ades are not what people think.

Basically, the study showed that they actually slow weight loss for exercisers looking to lose weight, because they are loaded with sugar.

They have been shown to have no benefit for people working out less than two hours at a time. Longer than that, yes.

Also they may be contributing to childhood obesity (and in my opinion all obesity) because people think they are some kind of healthier alternative to soda which has just as much sugar, so they drink more.

Do you drink a lot of sports drinks?
