Do you think Water or other drinks are best in the summer when you are active in

    Do you think Water or other drinks are best in the summer when you are active in the heat?

    Lots of debate here, I think. Whats the best for our health is my thought.

    Water would probably be the best, unless you're losing a lot of electrolytes. Then probably Gatorade or Powerade. Powerade doesn't have as much sodium as Gatorade, I think.

    Yeah, it depends how strenuous of an activity you might be doing. In general though, I think drinking water is fine. I try to drink water not only during the activity, but throughout the day and at night. I think a lot of people drink sports drinks when they don't really need them, and it just adds to their calorie intake unnecessarily.

    I think water is always the best.  However, it should be little and often to be of best effect, I've been told.  If you're really hot, it's not a good idea to drink very cold water; the contrast is not good as it can constrict your throat.  Again, I'm not medically qualified to know any of this but have gleaned this information from reading and talking to nurses and the like.

    Surprising tea is a good for cooling you down.

    Water of course!  What could possibly be better since our body is mostly made of water?

    I know you are supposed to drink 8 full glasses of water a day.  Does that include tea and coffee as they are made with water?  Elvis drank Gatorade when he did Karate or other sports.  A 100%(with no sugar added) juice in orange, grape, cranberry, cherry or other flavor would be excellent for your health and refreshing.  How about fresh squeezed lemonade?

    I think water is best and the most natural. If you are doing a lot of strenuous activity you will be losing electrolytes, but if I still wouldn't choose Powerade or Gatorade since they are full of artificial colors and sugar and other stuff I wouldn't want to consume.
