sugar-free energy drinks as needed

Diet Pepsi

I drink coffee. Maybe one cup a week, if even. I used to drink it all day everyday. (I like mine black and strong) I rarely drink pop, maybe once a month. I was never into energy drinks. I've tried a few & they were good, but I just don't find them necessary for me.

Loads of coffee.



All those antioxydants to me a load of good!!!



But not sodas. That's pure junk.

I drink a lot of coffee. I like mine very strong with just a little vanilla soy milk.



I don't drink energy drinks or soda, but I will have a natural root beer every once in a while (and I do mean every once in a while- I don't think I've had one in two years).

I drink way too much coffee, but am trying to wean myself off the diet soft drinks these days.

I can't even stand the smell of coffee, never mind drinking any...



I think energy drinks taste vile.... Plus I am enough of a spazz without them.



Sodas? Only flat (all bubbles stirred out) Canada Dry ginger ale if I am sick and throwing up which is very rare. My Mum used to give it to us as kids with saltines to "settle" our stomachs (probably an old wives tale as there is probably not a bit of real ginger in that ale). I'd probably be better off with ginger tea as the thought of drinking all that sugar kind of freaks me out....



Guess I am boring...

I drink fizzy drinks (usually coke or sprite) a couple of times a week, and black coffee every day.

I drink fizzy drinks a few times a week and black coffee on weekdays (need it to keep going at work, haha). tend to not touch energy drinks though as they taste like someones peed in a can and added sugar to it, if i find rockstar juiced i'll drink it though

I used to drink a pot of coffee. But for some reason, as I have gotten older, all I can stomach is one cup of coffee. Maybe a perimenopause thing?

You missy, speak the truth.



Rockstar and red devil is the only energy drink I drink now.

I never buy them myself but if somebody offers me a sip I won't turn it down

You are right about the pee in a can, some taste pure vile!



As for coffee, I used to drink a lot more, I haven't had one for about 2 weeks, I guess I've cut it out



Water & pure orange juice FTW!

I used to drink a cup or two of coffee in the morning, but anytime I do that regularly I start having trouble with heartburn. So I had to cut back out. I just like the whole atmosphere it makes for me in the morning enjoying a good cup of coffee with some soy milk and reading or watching the squirrels in the yard. I do the same with green tea now, but it just isn't the same cause I enjoy the taste of coffee more. I'll have an ocassional soy latte as a treat and that's about it now.



Otherwise the only things I drink are a ton of water, a small glass of soy milk and a cup of green tea everyday.

I love energy drinks but should NOT have them, as they're the key to the cage I keep my inner ADHD-afflicted four-year-old in.

I don't drink coffee. I don't drink energy drinks or sodas.



END.

I drink coffee and black teas and diet soda. I know the chemicals in the soda at least are bad bad juju and I'm planning on cutting soda out entirely soon but caffeine is not the devil. I tend to avoid energy drinks though, unless I need them (ie: long drives with little sleep).
post #17 of 63
Yeah, I'll drink pretty much anything that's going. Why do you ask? Does it have something to do with veganism?
post #18 of 63
I drink sugar-free fizzy drinks every day. I have coffee once in a blue moon, mostly at uni if I'm really tired. I only use energy drinks to treat hypos (low blood sugar) because they work fastest.
post #19 of 63
I used to drink all that stuff...coffee, energy drinks, and 4-5 cokes a day. Then one day none of it seemed appealing anymore so now it's various juices, rice milk, and lots of water. I really don't miss any of it and I'm sleeping MUCH better.
post #20 of 63
I'd like to make an edit and say that I won't drink Coke!

I'm not much of a soda/energy drink fan. But I would drink coffee nearly every weekday during the school year. Of course, I'm on summer break now, so my coffee consumption has significantly declined.
post #22 of 63
None of the above. Funny thing is, I work in a coffee shop. Whenever I drink it's water, or unsweetened herbal tea. Every now and then I will have a kombucha. But I can't allow myself to have a "little" caffeine, I have a very addictive personality. Little caffeine quickly leads to daily massive amounts of caffeine.



+1 for Yerba Mate. I get the flavored ones sometimes at school after getting little/no sleep. They are delicious. I do have to limit myself to very spare occasions though.. WAY too much caffeine.

I am also curious to why you asked the question? Are any of them not vegan or are vegan? What's the deal?

I drink a cup or two of coffee every day with soy milk. I know someone who won't go vegan because she can't give up the cream in her coffee...now that's just wrong! I looove the aroma of fresh brewed coffee.

I don't do anything carbonated, so no sodas of any kind.
post #24 of 63
1-2 cups of BLACK coffee, sometimes more (depending on mood).

no colas, sugar free or otherwise.

no energy drinks.

No because health is one of my reasons for choosing to be vegan.

No fizzy pop, energy drinks or coffee, strong black tea is my downfall- 4-6 cups a day, it's just not good! The decaffeinated stuff just isn't as good, I guess you could say I'm addicted.

sadly I do get energy drinks when I work....cause if I didn't I may fall asleep haha. I don't drink coffee. And I drink soda at special events like dinner with friends or at the movies or a BBQ. But thats about it.
post #29 of 63
I drink one large cup of coffee a day with sugar free sweetener. I drink soda occasionally but not diet as I do not like the aftertaste of most diet sodas. I drink sweet tea sometimes. I never drink energy drinks. The ones I have tasted taste yucky.
