Fruit Juice

While fruit juice is generally considered to be a more sensible option to sports and energy drinks, it's not recommended in large quantities. Juices tout high calorie counts, while the acidic content and high fructose cause cavities. Watered down juice is a great way to get all the fruity flavor while cutting out sugar and diluting the acid. Kalnins says diluted juice with a salty snack is another good alternative to a sports drink.
