dont wanna be a smartass cuz i dont really know much about it, but from what i heard they dehidrate u like crazy after a few, and the ammount of "energy"/caffeine in it is equal to a cup of coffee. so no i dont think u need it. just drink water. and if u want that extra boost eat a chocolate bar. its not the same but if u ask me its better and tastier Smile

if you feel like you need a "pick me up" during your workout, re-evaluate what you are eating before you workout.

You should be eating a light meal of carbs an hour before

or a medium meal of carbs and some fats two or more hours before

carbs with fructose (bananas, berries, fruits) can give you quick light energy before. A piece of toast, light oatmeal, some cereal works too.

Two or more hours before combine fruits and grains (ex. berries in oatmeal) with some fats (nuts and seeds). Eating fats with these carbs slows down the digestion of the carbs because fats take longer to digest. The longer digestion allows for continual release of energy that will keep you ready to workout for those two or more hours prior to your workout.

If you just eat carbs two or more hours before you will stress your glycemic levels because the carbs turns staight to energy in the body and if that energy is not used quickly (within the hour), it can turn into undesirable fat.

And no you should not drink energy drinks cause they are unhealthy and will jst make you crash and those five hour energy things make me really irratible. Bottom line is that if you are sleeping at least 8 hrs a night and doing proper nutrition, there really is no need.

hope this helps

Batman is correct.

The key is not to use sugar, but good carbs for energy. If you don't have time to eat ( you should, you should ALWAYS have time to eat ) coffee *may* serve as a pick-me-up. But its also a diuretic (s/p) so be sure you drink plenty of water before during and after the workout.

if you aim losing body fat dont drink energy drinks.
Athletes drink energy drinks cause they need the energy to go

Energy drinks are horrible for you. Many people have actually passed out or even died after drinking energy drinks and doing something active. One girl recently drank 2 or 3 redbulls and went dancing at a club and passed out and died. If you lack energy you need carbs. Also read the ingredients of what you put in your body. Some of these things are filled with crazy a$$ chemicals that should be banned.

All I can say to this are 2 words: MEDIAL BUBBLE. That thing with dying is not obvious, its like 1:1000000 bro. Dont be scared, its good for me. If you arent drinking it per liters a day, its good.

Is smoking bad for you if you only smoke 3 cigarettes a day? Yes it is. These drinks are bad for you. They target kids especially through marketing to make you think you need them. They will rob you of energy in the long run,and could make you dependent on them. Caffeine is a stimulant,it does not give you real energy. If you lack energy you need to check your diet and make sure you're sleeping enough. Guarantee the people that make these drinks are laughing at the people who drink them they know they are bad for you. It is not 1 in 1mill bro i've read alot of these stories even in mainstream news. Don't lie to yourself and say they are good for you. Someone especially your age shouldn't need any of that bullshit

Most energy drinks are full of simple sugars and will give you high energy then crash. Focus on eating complex carbohydrates one or two hours before a workout.

And the no sugar energy drinks are even worse for your health. They usually have artificial sweeteners like aspartame, acesulfame potassium, and/or splenda.

I'll give you a link that talks more about aspartame because it lists too many problems for me to type out.

Yes you can compare the two. Did you know when cigarettes first came out they marketed them as having health benefits,they even had doctors promoting them. 50 or more years later they admitted they cause cancer and are bad for you. Listen to your mom!lol If something is not good for you what does that make it then. Blend some fruit up if you want some energy,plus it tastes alot better than these garbage drinks.
