Are Energy Drinks Good Before Workouts? Q&A of The Week

Every week I answer a question or questions that are sent in to me regarding fat burning, weight loss, diet, fitness and or the Fat X Program (FX12).  This week's question was sent via a message on Facebook and it's in regards to energy drinks before workouts.

Hello Coach,
I've been using energy drinks before my workouts.  Do you think that will help with my fat and weight loss?  If not, could you recommend something that will, other than a healthy diet.  A supplement perhaps? 

Julie, energy drinks are fine before you workout as long as they are the sugar free variety.  You don't need the extra sugar in your diet as it will prevent your body from breaking down or metabolizing fat for energy.

The real energy in energy drinks comes from the caffeine content.  While caffeine tends to get a bad rap, studies have shown positive benefits of caffeine, including but not limited to stimulating thermogenesis and calorie burning.  This is the reason caffeine is contained in most fat burning supplements.
