You may have known of people that say Gatorade is a lot healthier than water. While in some ways they may be correct, they do not realize how much sugar Gatorade contains. Gatorade is made to make your body become energy-charged, and help you with physical work outs and sports training. Gatorade is not made to be consumed all the time and could actually make you gain weight over time. Drinking water does not contain sugar.
