From the minute you wake up in the morning, your body is craving water. When you work out is another time when you should be getting all your fluids, but remember to keep the sugar filled drinks away if you seek proper hydration.
Don’t have soft drinks or energy drinks while you’re exercising. Stay properly hydrated by drinking enough water during your workout (just don’t overdo things, as drinking too much water can also be dangerous).
While you might need energy drinks for long-distance running, in shorter exercise sessions in the gym, your body will burn the glucose from the soft drink first, before starting to burn body fat. Same goes for eating sweets.
