I am at 185 lbs, trying to get back to 155 lbs.  I know what I need to do, have done it before.

I have one question about energy drinks.  I have heard and read they increase metabolism.  Is this really true?  I am trying to figure if the added "bloat" from the carbonation is worth it if it helps with metabolism.  I do not lift for a workout, only cardio. 

Are energy drinks good while on a diet?

Thanks!

Energy drinks speed up your metabolic rate (the amount of energy expended in a given time) through stimulants such as caffeine. The downfall is that there also loaded with simple sugars and additives

I'd suggest sticking to coffee or buying Caffeine pills
