I started a goal of drinking at least 1 gallon of water per day. I was wondering if I could drink a 20oz of gatorade instead of some water? Or should i still drink the 1 gallong of water plus the gatorade?

Thanks

definetly NOT !

you want to keep the use of sugary drinks to a minimum...the only time I would drink gatorade would be post workout and only if you are not supplementing with dextrose or maltodextrin...

why whats wrong with water. Water is good for ya. Drink till your bladders content! All that sugar is bad for ya anyways, but all that water aint bad for ya, unless you are stuck in the middle of traffic with no hope of ever finding a restroom. ;)
