In the summer heat I had always lived on Gatorade then Propel. With the HCG P2 and P3 I wasn't sure what I was going to do. Then a patient of my husband's told him about Camelback Elixir Tablets. I ordered the Lemon/Lime tablets from Amazon and tried them at a four day very hot music festival, then golfing and hiking. They are perfect, I never felt drained or sick. Plus, the best part is they are <1gm Carbohydrate and NO Sugar. I am on P3 so I know they are fine but probably not for P2 because of the Sucralose. I haven't tried the orange flavored. Those tablets also have caffiene, B vitamins and sodium.
Following is a comparison between Camelbak Elixir tablets and Propel ingredients......unfortunately Propel has started adding High Fructose Corn Syrup
