Some people have told me that Gatorade is okay for low-carb diets...when i had some yesterday, i looked at the labels and its like 35 grams of carbs, but another label said its scientifically formulated to replenish, refuel muscle stores or whatever...true or not???

I can't see how this could be the case. Did they mean diet?

Gatorade is sugar and water, of course it's carbs. If you're doing a low-carb diet, not a no-carb diet, you could use it, but make sure to count the carbs towards your daily total. It would also be best to use it right before, during, or after a workout.
