    Apparently Holland and Barret have recently released a drink called Aspire that burns 210 calories within the 1st 180 minutes of consuming it. I do plenty of exercise and therefore it isn't essential for me, but it would prove a useful tool when I'm not going the gym on certain days.

    Has anyone tried/had results from this drink or drinks of a similar nauture?

    I call BS on things like these since there is no way to measure how many calories it burns, we don't have a little counter installed on our bodies so we can easily see lol.

    I suppose, it says it's been Scientifically tested. Although it is £1.40 a can it's tempting to do a trial run.

    Not only that, does that amount pretty much equate to most people's BMRs anyway? 210 cals over 3 hours, means 1680 cals over 24 hours, I wouldn't think that'd be significantly more than what you burn anyway?

    I think its in addition to what your body uses in a day. I was only looking at the product for a boost really.

    It does seem too good to be true... I wonder if it works when following a VLCD?

    Even if it works, which i seriously doubt , you are going to have to drink a hell of a lot of it to see any difference in weight

    To lose an additional pound a week you would need to drink around 17 cans if you burn 209 calories per can. At £1-69 a can it sounds like a great money making scheme to me :sigh:

    Ha ha yeah, £30 to lose a pound in weight. Doesn't sound so appealing now.

    It's probably not much more expensive than the other sorts of energy drinks like Monster and Rockstar and such. ;) It also has the caffeine boost even if it doesn't burn those cals, so I'm considering a bulk buy for those early uni mornings myself. Even a pound is still good per week, over 7 weeks that's half a stone for a drink I'd drink anyway. :)
    Oh and there's vitamins in the drink too. Just another lil plus since I can find it hard to get enough vitties without multivitamins sometimes. I have a bit of an absorbtion issue. xx
    Let me know how it goes gettingfitat50 xx

    If that Aspire really works you've just burned that yummy gingerbread man off ;) Besides, a treat is alright provided its an occasional one x
