Is it beneficial to my health to drink Gatorade?

I pretty much only drink water and gatorade, I dont drink soda, and rarley drink coffee, and ive recently cut milk out of the picture. Now im trying to go on a stricter, healthier diet, and im thinking about cutting gatorade out. I know water is the best way to go, and ive done this before and I always feel great when water is the only thing I drink, but is their anything in gatorade that I need, that im propably not getting anywhere else?

When you’re exercising for two hours or more at a stretch, drinking Gatorade G provides a good source of carbs to help replenish glycogen stores and electrolytes that are lost through sweating. On the other hand, it’s too high in sugar to sip when you’re just sitting around.
