Just found a link to this on my local news stations website. Celsius (http://www.drinkcelsius.com) Supposedly it raises your metabolism by 12% for a few hours after you drink it. Looks like it must contain a lot of caffiene, though I can't find a nutritional label to look at. Anyone tried this stuff? Anyone have a package they could post the nutrition info from?

Thanks!

I have tried the drink a few times before, it's not that eas to find in my area and it is expen$ive. I can tell by the taste that it has something added.
I haven't used it as a weight loss aid, so I cannot tell whether it works like that or not. My guess would be not.
If you're already folloing a healthy program and you want to drink a Celsius, fine, but I wouldn't count on it to help lose weight other than drinking it instead of soemthing laden with sugar. For that matter, you can spend less on a regular diet soda.

Undoubtedly the latest "magic pill" out there in liquid form! :)

As someone else posted recently (forgot who so can't give the proper credit) save your $$$ and buy some barbells and walking shoes! :jig:

Looking at the 'active ingredients' listed on the website, that pretty much sums it up. It's the same crap, only in a soft drink.

Green Tea Extract (http://www.supplementwatch.com/suplib/supplement.asp?DocId=1153) (I STILL can't believe that these marketers can sell such a commonly available item as a premium product...but they do - dang just DRINK regular green tea - you're probably better off).

Caffeine (http://www.supplementwatch.com/suplib/supplement.asp?DocId=1060) (which is the real 'secret ingredient' of 99% of those diet pills out there - people take them and believe that the 'buzz' they're getting means they're burning fat :rolleyes: )

Guarana (http://www.supplementwatch.com/suplib/supplement.asp?DocId=1154) - which is basically another form of caffeine.

Ginger extract (http://www.supplementwatch.com/suplib/supplement.asp?DocId=1136)

Taurine (http://www.supplementwatch.com/suplib/supplement.asp?DocId=1258) - an amino acid - doesn't make you burn fat from anything I've read.

And I guess there must be some sort of unwritten law that these diet products must include chromium (http://www.supplementwatch.com/suplib/supplement.asp?DocId=1081), even though it's been known for YEARS that they do absolutely nothing for weight loss. :shrug:

Plus - a lot of these ingredients are ALREADY in "energy drinks" (hubby is a big fan of Diet Rockstar) so there really doesn't seem to be anything new here...Energy beverages are hot right now, so this is just another addition to the market IMO.

I think I was the one who said save your money and buy dumbbells and walking shoes! :lol:

Pretty much sums it up ... it's the latest magic pill in liquid form ... I agree with Michele ... you'd spend less on a regular diet soda.
