Celsius Calorie Burning Beverage

I Don't Buy It: Celsius Calorie Burning Beverage

Products that seem too good to be true typically leave me feeling cold, and Celsius is no exception. Hoping to be a super soft drink, the new beverage is being marketed with claims that you can burn 100 calories simply by guzzling one can of the carbonated stuff. The drink apparently boosts your metabolism and causes your body to burn more calories, creating a net-negative-calorie effect.

With enough caffeine to cover about two cups of coffee (one can has 200 milligrams), this beverage is not for the caffeine sensitive. Steve Haley, CEO of Celsius Holdings Inc., defends the product's calorie-burning claims by citing clinical studies paid for by his company and mentions the drink's vitamin components that he says counteract the effect of caffeine on buyers' bones.

There are still many unknowns about the effectiveness of Celsius, and I agree with one nutritionist who commented, "Exercise is a better way to jump-start your metabolism, and it's healthier as well." I prefer to drink metabolism-stimulating green tea for a natural, inexpensive way to benefit my health.

MOST OF YOU OBVIOUSLY DIDN'T DO MUCH RESEARCH ON THIS ONE. IF YOU HAD, YOU WOULD HAVE REACHED A MUCH DIFFERENT CONCLUSION. Celsius has been clinically proven to burn calories, boost energy, and increase metabolism, on average 12% for up to 3 hours. Celsius contains a healthy blend of ingredients including Green Tea with EGCG, Ginger, Calcium, Chromium, B Vitamins, and Vitamin C. Celsius contains none of the bad ingredients typically found in soft drinks - no sugar, no carbs, no chemical preservatives, no high fructose corn syrup, no trans fat, and it has very little sodium. Celsius is a dietary supplement regulated by the FDA for food safety and quality manufacturing, and by the FTC for product packaging claims. Celsius is not a replacement for exercise and it is not a weight loss product; it is a replacement beverage for people who love the great taste of a soft drink and the energy of an energy drink, without the bad-for-you ingredients. Celsius is available in five flavors and (two Green Teas: Peach Mango and Raspberry Acai) Orange, Cola, Lemon-Lime, Wild Berry and Ginger Ale. Each 12 ounce bottle of Celsius retails for about $1.99.

Sockpuppet alert! Sockpuppet alert! A sign of Snake oil fer shure. Fit, I think the word you want for "apparently" is "allegedly."

100 cals just by drinking something that taste good (i suppose this is sweet so it should taste good) this is too good to be true i don't believe it plus, green tea's metabolism-boosting effect only works during daytime (i read an article somewhere backed up with a medical journal)

It's amazing how much people are willing to sacrifice their health to get thin. Too much caffeine can cause a heart attack. And carbonated drinks are bad for a woman's bone density, plus will reck your kidneys. Oh well. If it makes them happy...

I think this stuff tastes great. And it really works too. Seems to be the real thing, they show studies on their site. It's not too much caffeiene. I get head aches from coke products and not this stuff. I really like the mango tea flavor.
