Coffee vs. Energy Drinks: Which Works Best?

When you need a jumpstart in the morning, or face that afternoon slump, what's your typical go-to source of energy: a cup of coffee or an energy drink?

If you're trying to lose weight or melt belly fat your choice can make or break your weight loss goals and affect your energy levels. Your best option is the beverage that provides you with the most amount of sustainable energy that also delivers the best health benefits, keeps you in ketosis, and prevents weight gain. I'll do a quick comparison of these two popular energy boosters side by side.

Coffee Versus Energy Drinks

Compared to coffee, most view energy drinks in a negative light, but rarely do they pay attention to what’s added to our coffee like sugar and cream. Both of these contribute to elated blood sugar, pre-diabetes, high cholesterol and triglycerides, and expanding waistlines.

Most energy drinks are loaded with artificial colors and ingredients that aren't healthy, which is why most people steer clear of them. BUT NOT ALL ENERGY DRINKS ARE CREATED EQUAL.

Are the unequal attitudes towards these popular drinks justified? Energy drink fans will argue no, as just a single ounce of a typical energy beverage has 10mg of caffeine, while a single ounce of coffee contains 18mg (and no one seems to count the excessive sugar and cream added to them). But what’s really in an energy drink, anyways? Let’s dive deeper.
