“The best method is always going to be drinking plain water. The fancy waters you’ll see out there sometimes have a lot of ingredients in them, like artificial colors, and some have caffeine and a lot of unnecessary calories. If you’re just trying to hydrate, plain water is all you need.”
“If you’re working out for over an hour or you’ve been ill, then you likely need fluids with more electrolytes to help replenish everything that was lost while you were sweating. Depending on which sports drink you buy, some of them don’t have the artificial sweeteners or dye. It’s something the consumer has to be really responsible about and check the labels.”
