    Monster Energy drink...


    It has taurine, ginseng, L-carnitine a bunch of B vits, Guarana and a few other good things in it. Tastes pretty good and I do feel energized in the gym if I have one right around lunch time. I always eat rice and meat with a monster, like I am right now as I type this.

    What do you guys think of it from a BB stand point? Are the vits and mins. good or is the drink just a gimmick?

    I love the blue can (Low Carb). I would drink one everyday before I worked out.

    I like their coffee versions. Such as Monster Russian, or Monster Mocha. Russian being the bestest.

    I like the new Venom drinks that came out personally.

    But really, they are all bad for you in every sense....

    Occasionally I'll drink one of the blue ones, it's a nice boost of energy without tons of sugar.

    i personally dont care about the nutrition. Unless im dieting down it doesnt matter to me. Its the one flavorfull luxury i allow myself always. I am actuallya big fan of energy drinks and make an effort to try all different kinds. 83+ is where im at now.
    The new Amp Green Tea and Black Tea are very good, but the Lemonade is the best to me.
    I drink about 1 a day. If i dont i gotta have my coffee.

    I do try to eat with them though, mainly protein.
    I would also say the amount of those "good things" in there is next to nothing.
    For a solid pick me up i would look into Radioactive. Not sure why but i get an AMAZING feel from it.

    I noticed the other day, when I went to mobile, that they have a giant MEGA MONSTER versions. I couldn't bring myself to get one. I thought that might be overkill, drinking the whole can.
    I find Walmart to consistently have the best prices.

    dang...

    girls at my gym just throw on low low low cut tops and go bend over a bike and compete to see who can get the most guys staring down their cleavage.

    i'm pretty happy the weights are way way way in the back of the gym so i can concentrate

    i go to gas stations mostly. Lots of variety and always different things. I draw the line at the larger cans, i still do consider sugar content.

    Found the Nutrition facts of them online.

    Classic Monster Energy Drink ( Green)

    Nutritional Content:

    i. Serving size is 8 fl oz;
    ii. 2 servings per container;
    iii. 100 grams calories;
    iv. 26 grams sugar;
    v. 60 milligrams vitamin C;
    vi. 1.7 milligrams Riboflavin;
    vii. 20 milligrams niacin;
    viii. 2 milligrams vitamin B6;
    ix. 6 milligrams vitamin B12;
    x. 180 milligrams sodium;
    xi. 1000 milligrams taurine;
    xii. 200 milligrams panax ginseng; and
    xiii. 2500 milligrams energy blend.

    2. Low-Carb Monster Energy Drink (Blue)

    a. Ingredients- the same as the classic Monster energy drink

    b. Nutritional content:

    i. Serving size is 8 fl oz;
    ii. 2 servings per container;
    iii. 10g calories;
    iv. 3g total carbs;
    v. 3g sugars;
    vi. 60 mg vitamin C;
    vii. 1.7 mg riboflavin;
    viii. 20 mg niacin;
    ix. 2mg vitamin B6;
    x. 60 mcg vitamin B12;
    xi. 180mg sodium;
    xii. 1000mg taurine;
    xiii. 20 mg panax ginseng; and
    xiv. 2500 mg energy blend.


    After looking over this I am going to give the blue one a shot. I've never tried it. I tried the Low-carb red bull and nearly gagged. I'm not sensative really to stims like caffeine so I did'nt feel it at all, but the low carb monster seems pretty good.

    I prefer the taste of Monster to Red Bull, I don't think you'll be disappointed with the Lo-Carb.

    I agree. I still think the "Full Throttle" Low Carb takes the cake with taste though, imo.

    I think the rockstar low carb is the better out of those three. there are a few others i'm looking at trying. Most of the time I can't stand the aftertaste enough to finish a can of lo-carb. Maybe do a half and half to lower sugar a bit but still have a decent taste.

    i have tried over 80 Jay so if you need an opinion let me know. Xyience makes a good sugar free one, but they are expensive. i get them at the $1 store sometimes for $1. I just had another one called "push it" and it is sugar free taste ALOT like Monster (green) just a bit less kick from the lack of sugar(taste wise) 20mg more caffeine per can and smooth going down.

    Hey I am a roofer as well. Actually a salesman, the only work I do is talk though sometimes thats a bad thing

    NOS is definitely a good one, though those 5 hour energy drinks are good. In a worst case scenario I have RPM, Stimulant X if a day really calls on them.

    Currently drinking the low carb Monster with my meat and rice.

    It's awesome. Tastes just as good if not better than the green regular sugar loaded one!

    I will echo your love for NOS. One of the best tasting energy drinks out there (tastes NOTHING like red bull, thankfully!), and it usually gives me a nice boost.

    NOS is definitely a good one, though those 5 hour energy drinks are good. In a worst case scenario I have RPM, Stimulant X if a day really calls on them.
    Well I am the owner/president/secratary/officer etc. of the company, so I have to quote jobs and do paperwork after working a 10-14 hour day in the heat or the cold(May and September are the happy mediums where I live). You should help pack bundles(60-75 pounds-2@ at a time) up the ladder for one of the jobs you sell lol, then tear that bugger off and help apply. THEN workout. Your worst case senario becomes your everyday! Needless to say I am addicted to coffee and energy drinks.
