Gatorade is a pretty crappy hydration drink - it's too sweet and doesn't really encourage you to eat much. What works depends on your own body - I suggest trying a few different ones, if only to find a flavor that you can stomach. I use accelerade cut with a 1/4 maltodextrin. Endurox is a recovery drink, and not something you'd want to use as a hydration drink.
