Gatorade Ok

Sick of water - August 17

I am 11.5 weeks pregnant and sick of water - it seems to enhance that nasty metalic taste. So last week I began buying Gatorade . . . it is relatively low cal. But today I noticed that it has food coloring in it. I know moderate amounts of food coloring are OK, but is 32 - 64 oz of Gatorade a day moderate? (It is one of the last ingredients on the bottle) . . .

i use to drink gatorade all the time when i was prego i hated the taste of water with my other children after awhile...i would consider the food coloring to be very moderate due to the fact that it is the last ingredent in the mixture but if you are really concerned about it i would talk to your doc about it...i think that it would be better for you than sodas or teas Good luck

Gatorade is fine, but it does have a lot of sodium which can make you retain water. This is the last thing you want to do when pregnant. I would limit your consumtion to 24 oz a day. You don't want to add the the bloatedness of pregnancy! I myself drink red raspberry tea from the health food store. It is excellent during pregnancy as it tones the uterus in preperation for labor. Also, diet caffeine free soda is !00% water. Good Luck!

If you are concerned about the food coloring, you should try Propel. It is really good and has no color to it. Looks just like water and has some vitiamins in it.
