"Gym Shorts" from the Fitness Center

 Recently two new drinks have hit the market, Enviga and Celsius. Both are green tea drinks claiming to burn calories and boost your metabolism. Is this all hype? For the most part, yes. These drinks contain caffeine and an antioxidant called ECGC. Together these ingredients are supposed to increase your metabolism. Although caffeine is a stimulant and together with ECGC will increase your metabolism, it is only slightly and not enough to see a weight reduction.

Celsius claims a 12 ounce can burns up to 75 calories for 4 hours. Enviga claims 3 cans a day can burn 60-100 calories.

The Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) is a nonprofit consumer watchdog group. They have filed a lawsuit against Enviga, calling the statements fraudulent.

These green tea drinks have some nutritional value because of the antioxidants, but don't expect miracles from a can. You still need to exercise and eat a balanced diet to lose weight. These drinks may give you a boost of energy to help you through a workout, similar to all of the other energy drinks on the market.
