A bottle of gatorade isn’t as good as Surge (as you know). And it really isn’t that much cheaper.
Surge is about $2 a serving. Even with four workouts a week it’s only $8. I don’t know ho wmuch you make (and I’m not trying to be a dick) but gatorade isn’t really saving you any $$$.
A 32 oz bottle of gatorade at my local store is about $1.65.
I get 3 lbs 3oz of gatorade powder at walmart for 8 dollars. This makes about 6 gallons. Also does not contain HFCS like the liquid.
I use just shy of one scoop for my PWO shake. This gives me about 25 servings per 8$ tub with 200 cals, and 52 carbs per scoop.
I mix this with my whey to get a ratio of 24g protein to 55 carbs.
Now Im not saying this is better than Surge. I have never used Surge and Surge has other things in it as well that the Gatorade/Whey cant give you. Probably tastes alot better too. (Lemon/Chocolate PWO Shake, yuk.) But for somebody like me who is usually broke, this is close enough to perfection.
Malto and Dextrose is even cheaper than the gatorade, so I look forward to trying that soon too.
Edit- Just did the math roughly. Gatorade is ~.32 a serving, and my protein is ~.65 a serving. So I pay ~$1.00 for each PWO Shake.
