Default Least nutricious/best way to get caffeine boost?

Monsters, red bulls, celcius, sodas, coffees. What's the worst way for your blood, sugar, this that, etc to get caffeine? What's the worst? What's the least negative?

Simple. Almost ANYTHING in a can - WORST.

Best? Simple as well:



Espresso "shot's" - my favorite is Cubano coffee - two espresso shot's with a twist of lime (no milk/no sweeteners).

A couple of these will get most people's palm's sweaty; will last for hours and NO calories.

I buy the jugs of unsweetened Starbucks iced coffee. Put them in a shaker bottle with a scoop of chocolate protein. Great afternoon pick me up,

the worst, as above said, is anything in a can.

I do some long fishing days. Frequently solo. I start the day drinking coffee on the way out, by the 8 hour mark I need another boost. I drink one of these over ice, hours later, heading home, I drink another to energize for boat unloading and cleaning. Buy them at a warehouse club by the case and don’t drink them anywhere else but fishing. I actually refer to them as “fishing juice”. They taste great over ice and must be really bad health wise with the combination of caffeine, artificial sweeteners, coloring etc. Says on the can not to drink more then 3 a day. They are refreshing and the caffeine boost quite noticeable. After drinking a couple cans, I occasionally find myself remembering people, places or events that occurred 30,40 even 50 years ago that the “MONSTER” helps me to realize pissed me off

I would conclude there is enough caffeine in them to make one “ornery”.

Coffee or tea.

Black tea's (same thing regular iced tea is made from) are the highest in caffeine. Tea's caffeine boost comes on slower but tends to last longer than coffee.

A little bit of Bolivian Marching Powder will get you going. Hookers optional.

I’m a big fan of the 5hr energy shots. Great mid afternoon pick up and easier than downing a cup of coffee at 3:00 pm.

The problem with coffee is that it tastes horrible unless it's doctored up with enough stuff so it tastes like hot chocolate. May as well drink hot chocolate.

Stop drinking gas station coffee.



Some folks hate the taste but I started drinking black coffee at the demands of my grandfather when I was young. Now k can't stand it fixed up...just good quality dark roast is all you need.

You are likely drinking bad coffee, or badly prepared coffee. It's easy to make correctly with a bit of intentionality.

Actually, they say the best source of caffeine is from either green tea or yerba mate. Coffee is right there with them.

The problem with energy drinks isn't the caffeine. It's the amount of caffeine, other ancillary additives (yohimbe, arginine, etc), and artificial sweeteners (or sugar).

Caffeine at the end of the day is caffeine. What makes it "bad" is what else is coupled with it and/or how much is ingested.
