energy drink = high in caffeine and high in sugar

one can is effectively your daily sugar intake depending on brand and size and not to mention all the other shiet they throw in there to make it taste better.

Depends on how you see it, there are some advantages to growing extra appendages. You know what they say, if the glass is half full, drink it and it will be completely empty, just like your soul and all of life in general

Most energy drinks are unhealthy but one a day isn't terrible.

I get up early and my job includes a lot of physical labor so I'll drink two or three a day, or at least I used to.

5 Hour Energy is better for you since it's mainly just ~200 mg of caffeine and B vitamins.

OP, try the monster rehab energy drinks. It's not "good" for you, but it only has 10 calories and 3g sugar per serving, two servings per can. The lemonade/iced tea one is the best tasting. energy drink, IMO. It's non-carbonated too.

Your adrenals will get fried and you'll have less natural energy to draw from

If I had any relevent classes I would definitely write on paper on side effects of energy drinks. I drink about 5 a week myself.

my favorite at the moment.

Yes. They're usually worse than soda. If you drink a couple cans of soda or 1 energy drink a day you're taking in your daily equivalent of sugar in one drink that's suppose to be for the whole day.

So it's very likely you're eating other things throughout the day that have sugar in them. Which in the long term "could" make you insulin resistant and on-set to diabetes because you're taking in so much sugar each day.

Back after WWI the daily sugar intake of sugar for Americans was estimated at about 15-20 grams a day. Today we're taking in like 75 grams of sugar. After High Fructose Corn Syrup was introduced into the American food supply in the 70s our sugar intake nearly doubled AND the obesity rate started to sharply go up at that time as well.

I recently got lazy and started eating horrible and not exercising. I went form 240lbs down to 185 from January 2012 to July of 2012. At the beginning of October I was 186, I stopped exercising totally and went lazy on my diet. I was binge eating. For example I would eat 9 chocolate cookies in 1 setting (big ones). 250 calories for each cookie and each cookie had like 21 grams of sugar. Over the course of the month I gained 11 pounds.

3 days ago I went back on my health kick. Only water/milk and eating healthy choices with protein in my diet. I exercised both days for 15 minutes. I went from 197 down to 192.2 in 2 days.

Sorry that I rambled, but you are what you eat/drink.
