Gatorade and similar drinks - those that provide electrolytes and sugars - are ideally suited for his situation. He doesn't need to spend $20 on something with effectively no actual calories and a ton of vitamins and minerals.
That makes sense to me.

I'd also suggest eating plenty of food / calories to recover and be ready for the next day.

And you don't have to be "healthy" unless you want to be. You'll be burning up whatever you eat and drink anyway.
