during your workout i dont see a problem, but the rest of your day should be water.Member of the True Spartans
Don't be afraid to make mistakes, stumble and fall, because most of the time, the greatest rewards come from doing the things that scare you the most. Maybe, you'll get everything you wish for. Maybe, you'll get more then you could ever have imagined. Who knows where life will take you. The road is long, and in the end - - the journey is the destination.

I personally count that the calories in Gatorade and such just weren't worth it for me, at least while cutting.

just stick to drinking water during your workout and leave the gatorade for post workout.
gatorade has dextrose in it, it'll give you a really fast insulin spike..which isn't too optimal during your workout (it will give you a good energy boost i guess). The thing is you need a insulin spike after you workout, so leave it for your PWO shake and you'll be fine.
