  • What's your take on Energy Drinks?

    They are so many brands, RedBull, Monster, Rockstar, etc...

    Some of them are very low carb but the rest of the substances they contain I cant even pronounce... looks like a science fair experiment. Carnitine, Taurine, Guanine, blablabla ginseng extract, etc etc

    I had a can from a friend, to see if it makes any difference and it DOSEN'T! Had just right before exercising... My friend swears and lives on them. Placebo? I didnt felt a thing, nothing different, but burps with the taste, that's it...

    What's your take on these?

      Rockstart tastes the best. But has tons of sugar so its about as primal as wheat bread.

        Really?

        Quick Google search - Red bull at Amazon (you can buy anything there) - Red Bull Energy Drink 12 Oz. / 24 Pack Cans - $49.99. That $2/can!

        Couple of cans and you can just about have a pound of grass feed beef. Or 2 pounds of chicken when its on sale. Or 4 avocados this time of year. Or 4 large apples. or 2 starbucks coffees with 1/2 and 1/2 added.

        Which would you rather have?

          My general take is that these are BAD juju... not even slightly primal. Too many weird chemicals. Even the chemicals that are vitamins, it's way easy to overdo them when they're isolated in this way.

          Also remember that each person is different - what generates a great reaction in your friend might do absolutely nothing for you, and vice versa. You gotta try stuff out and find what works for you.

            Sugar, fake sugar, more sugar, more fake sugar, caffeine, plant extracts, and amino acids, preservatives and some chemicals to make it not react with the can. Or you could drink tea/ coffee, eat meat, eat eggs, and get your energy by being primal.... I've made my choice....

                I would avoid them like the plague. On a regular basis I only ever drink water and tea. Once in a blue moon, I might have a Scotch or a glass of wine with dinner.

                      Go!

                      Or failing that, coconut milk. I like the idea of getting my energy from food, but you have to not destroy your metabolism with bad food.

                          Coconut milk would be my choice for an energy drink!
