What can you say about consumption of energy drink?
I've recently read about the effect of energy drinks in our body. I wanna ask you guys if you have personal experience about how energy drinks affect the body.
Energy drinks are nothing more then a can of sugar. Most of them have upwards of 40 to 50 grams of sugar per serving, which is where the "energy' is coming from. I no longer drink them. Sugar is the main precursor of fat, the more sugar you have in your body, the more fat your body will retain.

If we want to maintain an optimum body-weight for life we need to be aware of one obvious truth: the energy we take it should equate to the energy we expend. If you are running a Marathon every second day you will need to take in plenty of energy. I know one lady who used to run such long distantances who simply used to eat lots of bread; several loaves in fact, and never put on an ounce of fat. But how many of us run Marathons?
It is also true that whilst our bodies are growing, i,e. up until our early to mid twenties our intake of calories can and should exceed the rate at which we burn them up. We are, after all, still adding bone, flesh and tissue. But once we ARE grown up, we need to adhere to that rule of equalization: calories in to match calories burned up in excercise.
The problem is we all like to eat. Fine. But do it for taste and let the taste linger. You don't need to walk around with a can of Coke in one hand and a Big Mac in the other for a goodly part of every day. And as for those energy drinks...don't even bother.
I find it ironic that when I was a kid my parents let me have coffee and there was sweet tea at every meal. I didn't drop dead from my heart basically exploding in my chest, nor did any of my friends that drank the same beverages. But today's kids have energy drinks and in general they are way less active and a lot fatter. Frankly, I think energy drinks are too high in caffeine and sugar. I have a good friend that got addicted to them and went through heck weaning herself off. Thank god she had good old-fashioned milk chocolate to turn to. Now she's stopped jittering and is no longer a couch potato.
I think we are better off not to drink any of the sugary drinks. Soda pop is bad enough with sugar and sodium to raise chaos with our digestive system. Energy drinks are a great idea for a boost when we are running out of power, but they bring a sudden down just as caffeine would when it wears off. From what I have seen those who drink them have just as an addiction as a person does for coffee or caffeine laced soda pop. We know the shakes and anxiety associated with that are no fun.
