Drinking sticks and dirt.

July 20, 2007

Blech! Yick! Sticks! Dirt!

So one of the ladies at work tells me her son’s losing weight in droves because of this Enviga drink. So I picked up a can of the Green Tea flavor at the local 7-11 which is, sadly, not a Qwik-E-Mart. Enviga claims to be a natural metabolism booster and therefore negative calories to drink.

It sounds like a good deal, but unfortunately it tastes like sticks. And dirt. I could only get through half a can.

So yeah, another get-skinny-quick thing that I fell for, albeit for a few minutes. At least I haven’t fallen for the Alli diet pill. How’s it work? It prevents you from digesting 25% of your fat intake. So you have to have a low-fat diet or … well … there’s a LOT of fat you don’t digest. And since you don’t digest it… it comes out. In embarrassing ways. Am VERY glad I read up on this before flocking toward it.

And yes…I realize the appearance of the Pocky in the picture completely cancels out any perceived seriousness on my part about losing a pound or 10.

    Be very careful when taking tablets which absorb fat as you can suffer from really, really bad constipation. You have been warned. Good luck. That can of drink sounds revolting. I hear Nettle tea is really good. Cheers.

    Tony tells me that Enviga is being sued do to its claims… they say any highly caffeinated drink will burn calories.

    I do like the high dose of green tea in it.
