  • Happy 2014, JWASHINGTON1031!

    I found several answers for your situation at this discussion site:

    Apparently, maybe Gatorade is too concentrated, and also may have too much sodium and sugar. Some users suggest DILUTING it before drinking. Some recommended a different drink called HEED. Someone else suggested using ENDUROLYTE. Another person gave a good "recipe" for soaking dates and fruit, and using THAT has the base of your own energy/post-workout drink. I'm going to try some of these myself!

    All the best, and good luck, everyone!

  • When I workout I am always sweating twice as much as any of my friends -- not just during exercise, but generally I sweat profusely in heat, etc... My problem during exercise is that I know I should be drinking something with electrolytes to replace minerals lost, but when I consume drinks like Gatorade I get excruciating stomach cramps IMMEDIATELY. Does anyone have any ideas about what I might try instead?? - 10/29/2013 10:47:01 AM
  • I thought it odd that they would push the carbs not the protein. Hmmmmmmm - 10/22/2013 2:43:28 PM
    After my morning walk, I have a protein smoothie with banana, strawberries or blueberries or a protein bar and fruit, 30min. to 60min. after workout. - 10/14/2013 2:28:54 PM
