The good folks at Gatorade just sent me a link to their latest commercial for Propel Fit Water. You can see the short 30 second clip here.
I’ve actually tried Propel water and it’s pretty good. At 25 calories per bottle, it’s significantly lower than regular sports drinks and many vitamin water products. That means you get all the vitamins and electrolytes from this stuff, without having to joggle an extra 2 miles to burn it off.
That’s right. Joggling burns about 130 calories per mile and one bottle of most sports drinks is about 250 calories.
So, why not just drink water? Well, you can but that gets a bit boring because there is no flavor plus a few extra water-soluble vitamins may make running (or recovery) easier.
Go ahead and try Propel. I’m curious what you think.
