Celsius – Your Calorie Reducing Drink


Celsius promises to be the first and only negative calorie drink.  Who needs zero when you can have negative, right?  It claims to burn up to 100 calories or more per serving while boosting your metabolism, reducing body fat and increasing energy and endurance.  All by being powered by MetaPlus.

MetaPlus is a combination of ingredients that includes Green Tea with EGCG, ginger, caffeine, guarana, Vitamins B &C , Chromium and Calcium as well as a proprietary mixture.  Over a three hour window it will help your body burn fat and calories while giving you energy.  There are seven flavors to suit your tastes and they come in sparkling or non-carbonated.  Flavors like Sparkling Cola, Orange and Wild Berry were my favorite.  The no sugar, no artificial sweetener or high fructose corn syrup claim may be true but there was an odd sweetness to all the drinks that was slightly better when carbonated.  Non-carbonated flavors include Lemon Iced Tea, Strawberry-Kiwi, Green Tea Raspberry Acai and Outrageous Orange.  There is also a naturally sweetened Apple Orchard Blend.

I definitely noticed an uptick in my energy when I would drink this but I attribute that to the 200 mg of caffeine in each serving.  Vitamin B can help with metabolism of fats, carbohydrates and proteins so while I am not sure I saw a difference in this I will say that I drank all eight of my samples in the last month and I did lose weight despite not working out as diligently as I had been. I am leaner all over, which surprises me.  It could be that my weight training classes with cardio are finally showing a difference or a combination of the Celsius drink and the exercise.    Small changes in your diet and exercise can have a bigger effect than you think.

Celsius drink also come in quick “on-the-go” stick packets that can be mixed with water and used before workouts.  You can purchase them and other Celsius products online.
