Alternative to Energy Drinks For Effective Weight Loss

Margarita FolkPosted by

There are a lot of energy drinks in our markets throughout the whole world in recent time. They came with such false and outrageous claims of super energy, perfect and healthier body. In other words they claim that if you take any of these drinks, you will be the healthiest person in the world. This is a fake assumption.

These so called drinks contains carbonated water, loaded with gut-fattening high fructose corn syrup, caffeine, amino acid taurine and some other crapping vitamins. High fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is gut fattening empty calories without any nutritional benefit or value. They are mixed with artificial sweeteners to taste. These artificial sweeteners contain some chemicals that are considered so harmful to the body. It makes people to consume more calories, thereby making them gain more weight in the long run.

Caffeine in itself doesn’t provide energy but only stimulates the central nervous system. Instead of caffeine added to some carbonated energy drinks, always get it from natural sources like green, white or colong teas which provide powerful healthy antioxidants. If you take coffee regularly, you have a level of addiction to caffeine which is not too good for your fat loss campaign.

Taurine on the other hand is obtained from almost any protein source. Vitamins are best obtained naturally from a real food source, not artificially to some carbonated drink. Your body doesn’t use fake and artificial source of vitamins but natural from REAL food.

The question now is what is the alternative to the so called harmful drinks we are talking about? Below are some recipes for natural energy drinks:

– Big iced tea mixture with the combination of green tea, white tea and yerba mate tea. Add little fruit flavor with 1 tea bag of a raspberry or blueberry hibiscus tea, 2-3 green white tea bags and 2-3 yerba mate tea bags to make 1 gallon of iced tea. Sweeten the batch of tea with small amount of stevia.

– Get a container of organic coconut water from health food store to obtain the coconut water from inside.

– Make half glass of the white/green yerba mate as iced tea mixture and fill the rest of the glass with coconut water.

This is actually a delicious and healthy energy drink compared to the chemical crappy ones we have been discussing about. You will definitely enjoy this natural healthy drink as it will also be of good effect to your body instead of filling it (your body) with dangerous chemicals.

In conclusion, green, white and yerba mate tea contains a small dose of caffeine along with diverse mixture of powerful antioxidants and synergistic phytochemicals, while the coconut water is a rich source of electrolytes and diversity of vitamins and minerals. It provides a good energy source and some medium chain triglycerides which are healthy fats that are readily used for energy and immune boosting.
