I love Gatorade

But the calories, not so much.

So is this something you would drink in place of water whether you are dehydrated or not?

Yep - and electrolyes are my biggest issue (well, aside from a list of other things)

Being firmly mired in the mid-20th century, I have a personal issue with paying for water in any form. I do it because I don't like the water that comes out of my tap and it's convenient to take in the car, etc.

I wouldn't drink SW all the time because I don't need electrolytes all the time. I recognize that it makes a lot of sense for those who have elecrolyte issues because of meds or exercise.

Maybe someday I'll catch up with the rest of the world.

I wouldn't think so - too much anything (even electrolytes), is never a good thing. It should be used the same way Gatorade is used. I could probably drink a bottle every day and be ok because of the fluid pills I take. I lose a lot of electrolytes that way.

SO is in the same boat. I'll suggest SW to her. She's not keen on all the Gatorade flavors.

I dont drink Vitamin Water, but Im assuming that it IS something you can drink in place of water, which is why its different from Smart Water?
