Energy Drinks: Your main concern with energy drinks and soda is the sugar and caffeine. While 1 energy drink a day may not seem like much, you are consumer a large quantity of sugar at one time. This is not good for your metabolism and health. Also, a consequence of energy drink caffeine can be cardiac arrhythmias. You should try to cut back on the energy drinks and continue to exercise.
