Energy Drinks

A brave New York Times reporter sucks down 13 different energy drinks of various parentages and gives us the lowdown on their

  • taste,
  • appearance,
  • ingredients,
  • overall effect, and
  • dubious appeal.

If you are eating plenty of raw vegetables and fruits, there are more than enough electrolytes and sugars to replace your losses from working out. Interestingly, if you go to Google and type in "nutritional type" or "nutritional typing" and click the I'm feeling lucky button you will find a familiar page.
