    losing weight with energy drinks

    The 7 11 in ashland Or put sobe no fear energy in the fountain 32 oz for 99 cents. Can't say much for the taste but that night I had one and a half cantelopes for dinner I didn't feel full I felt stuffed and couldn't finish the rest of it. I'm on a tour now and drink dose energy at the circle K and unbound at the AM PM they don't seem to work as well as sobe but they do work. I took off 15 pounds in about 1 year. I thought there was no fat on my 26 inch thighs but I can now see veins and muscle defination I never saw before. Most of the weight came from my waist.

    Yeah, I read huge doses of High Fructose Corn Syrup is a great way to lose weight.

    Aren't there something like 42 servings of sugar in the average energy drink?

    Just buy some caffeine in pill form--if there's any magic in there, that's what's doing it. Of course you might wanna ask a doctor before using that much caff on a regular basis.

    I liked caffeine pills in high school. If there were energy drinks like Sobe no fear or Red Bull back then I'd have drunk that along with my cans of Jolt cola and the caffeine pills. Probably would have had a heart attack at 21 or a nervous breakdown.

    I'd add some protein to that diet, Charles. Your food intake sounds scarily high in sugar and there's not much in the way of vitamins or minerals. Good luck.

    There's a guy in my rando club who thrives on Red Bull for his 600 and 1200k rides. Another guy chews raw kola nuts. My personal fave is a creation we've dubbed the "Randoccino": 1 bottle of chocolate Ensure mixed with 1 can of Starbucks Doubleshot mocha.

    Of course, I'm not doing this on a daily basis. Only for an energy kick during rides over 15 hours.

    I look like this http://share.ovi.com/media/currentre...resident.10083 I think it is the taurine in the energy drinks that prevents the body from burning it's own protein. Inositol is also a proven fat burner. The difference between SoBe and the others is grape seed extract a substance used by body builders. None of this stuff is very expensive it should add around 10 cents to a 12 ounce can. When I did a tour from bend Or to indianapolis In 2226 miles in 22 days I drank sodas and did lose a bit of muscle but it quickly came back.
