But We Draw the Line at Leggy Columbian Goddess!
It appears Fargo North Dakota has a lot more going on than just great sunsets and endless views of stunning prairie. We came across this engaging review of Celsius written by Meredith Holt a journalist with the Forum of Fargo-Moorehead and just had to share it. Thanks Meredith for putting a smile on our faces. We can assure you it is not the placebo effect…we have 7 scientifically proven studies from the University of Oklahoma that confirm…you did have more lasting energy and you did indeed burn more calories.
I wish drinking Celsius made me look like Sofia Vergara. A few cans of the gingery beverage and I’d magically transform into a leggy Colombian goddess.
The “Modern Family” super-babe was recently spotted sipping “the world’s first and only negative-calorie drink” which promises to boost metabolism reduce body fat increase endurance and provide lasting energy.
The low-sodium Celsius contains no sugar no high-fructose corn syrup no aspartame and no artificial preservatives flavors or colors.
If you drink it before a workout (which I did – twice) you’re supposed to burn up to 100 calories due to its “thermogenic effect” or the amount of energy required to digest absorb transport and store food. Since I don’t have a Bodybugg or other wearable calorie-tracking device I don’t know for sure whether Celsius gave me an additional calorie burn.
On night one I drank the Sparkling Wild Berry (the best of the three flavors I tried) before doing an hourlong cardio workout.
On night two I drank the Sparkling Orange before an hourlong half-cardio half-strength-training workout.
I’d like to think the fizzy liquid gave me a lasting energy boost because I felt good both nights even though I’d taken the previous week off from the gym.
Celsius powered by “MetaPlus” a blend of supposed calorie-burning ingredients such as green tea ginger and guarana made me feel strong and energized.
… Or was it because I was happy to be back in the gym? Or was it the placebo effect?
On Monday morning I sipped a little of the non-carbonated Green Tea Raspberry Acai in place of my half-pot of dark roast though Celsius contains 200 mg of caffeine similar to drinking two 8-ounce cups of coffee.
