Default Calorie-Burning Soda Says It Helps Shed Pounds - article

I saw a brief bit on this on the local morning news, so when I got into work I went to the station's web site to see if I could read the rest of the story.

Now why don't I believe this?

OKLAHOMA CITY -- You pedal and push -- all in hopes of building the perfect body. However, to gain strength, you sometimes have to give up your weakness.

Now there is a soft drink that claims to help you lose weight and boost energy, Oklahoma City television station KOCO reported. It's called Celsius, and the reason its makers make their claim is thermogenics

Thanks for posting this. I saw this on the news last night, but only caught the tail end of it. I have my doubts about this as well. I wish it was for real though! I gave up soda all together and drink nothing but water/milk/juice. Thanks again!

LOL Linda, can't imagine why you don't believe it. It will probably show up in Woman's World soon as their weekly "magic answer" to weight loss LOL.

But I am sure there are people who will buy the stuff.

I'd call it "Barnum & Bailey Soda" because there's a sucker born every minute. And you KNOW folks are gonna shell out the clams for it. Claiming, "OH I like it for the taste" when they're teased for being so gullable. Turtle rolling her eyes.
