No: Caffeine does not necessarily cause weight loss. Energy drinks have a lot of calories, should not be consuming unless you do significant physical activity.

If I woke up at 5am and took an energy drink then went running then went to my weight training at 5 pm will I lose muscle or I will lower my body fat?

Energy drink: It depends on the nature of your workout. By itself, an energy drink will not cause you to lose muscle mass or lower body fat. If the energy drink is high calorie, this may contribute to a higher body fat.

My doc's ok with this. I am going on a 3 day fast to detoxy and lose weight. I am only drinking green tea and water. How can I have energy?

My doc's ok with this. I am going on a 3 day fast to detoxy and lose weight. I am only drinking green tea and water. How can I have energy?

THIS IS DANGEROUS!!!: I specialize in detoxification and consider this hazardous. It might have been ok 50 years ago, but we are all now loaded with toxins. When you do this fast many toxins will be released & without supporting your liver with proper nutrients you may get really sick. You need more nutrients than green tea can provide. Consider using an organic greens/superfood powder for better results. See comment:.

Magnesium, meditation: Not entirely sure what your question is but energy drinks are high in caffeine & sugar which can be dangerous so it's wise to stop. Caffeine withdrawal can cause anxiety but lasts just a few days. Eat healthy foods, minimize sweets, take a good B Complex & Magnesium taurate or glycinate, herbs like Tulsi Tea & Ashwagandha, meditate/ practice slow deep breathing, exercise and get adequate sleep.

Please explain which energy drink do you recommend for strength?

Please explain which energy drink do you recommend for strength?

None of them: Proper diet, exercise and healthy lifestyle is what I recommend to anyone for strength. Energy drinks are mostly caffeine, sometimes with unnecessary vitamins or additives that really are unnecessary and useless for most people. These can give temporary "strength" or "energy" to people, but do not improve health.

Please advise if it's bad to drink an energy drink and then work out?

Please advise if it's bad to drink an energy drink and then work out?

Talk to a trainer: Or a sports medicine physician, and neither of them would recommend it. Energy drinks are not all the same - some of them are just caffeine, others have large amounts of sugar, and some have caffeine plus a lot of other stuff of unknown usefulness - like vitamins and taurine. In some cases, they are no different than a good strong cup of coffee, and others are caffeine OD's waiting to happen.

What do you think about the energy drink verve from the vemma company? Is it healthy?

No endorsement: There is an unwritten rule here. We do not advocate or endorse a product. But, I can very plainly say that these 'energy' drinks are in no way healthy. Sugar and caffeine are nothing special to help with health.

During exercise which is best energy drink?

During exercise which is best energy drink?

NONE!: During a workout, your stress hormones will ramp you up enough if working at proper intensity. Energy drinks can cause overshoot on BP & heart rate, and heart rhythm problems. Stick to water and electrolyte drinks, especially as you approach 4-0....And beyond.

Can you take prednizone with a 5 hour energy drink?

Can you take prednizone with a 5 hour energy drink?

Hyper: Prednisone already makes many people feel "bouncy". Throw in a stimulant and you may not feel well at all. You may also get indigestion or stomach pain. Prednisone is an anti inflammatory medication and energy drinks often contain lots of caffeine. The combination may be too much for your stomach, too.

What to do if I just smoked after I drank a nos energy drink. Is that bad?

Neither recommended: Both are bad for you, smoking being the worse of the two evils. However, combining the two can increase chances of stomach and cardiac issues, such as irritation of ulcers, arrhythmias, or hypertension.

Could you tell me what happens if you overdose on anti-depressants and have an energy drink?

Could you tell me what happens if you overdose on anti-depressants and have an energy drink?

Mixing drugs: Mixing these drugs can be a safety risk. As well, if you inherited are biological vulnerability for bipolar illness, the combination can shift you into hypomania or mania, both of which are harmful to the brain. If you are needing more energy (common in depression), talk with your md about issues of energy, sleep, and treatment adjustments to get you better, rather than risky self-medication.

Is it possible to have a manic episode everytime I drink an energy drink?

Is it possible to have a manic episode everytime I drink an energy drink?

NOT REALLY: Do you have a diagnosis of bipolar disorder? If so then energy drinks are probably not a good idea. If you do not have bipolar disorder then is this not the point of an energy drink to get up? If you are concerned, then th solution is simple, do not drink it anymore.
