    Hi all,

    As some of you know, on Saturday I have a kickboxing grading (1.5 hours) followed by an advanced karate grading (2 hours). It's going to be a very hard and tiring day and I'm going to need all the energy boosts I can get. I will have pasta for breakfast then snack on bananas throughout the day. I will need some energy drinks too though but I don't want the fizzy ones.

    Can anyone tell me which still energy drinks are low in Syns or free?

    Not sure about SYN? etc but do you guys have gatorade over there? This is good for electrolites. Also a protein drink for when you finish as it helps muscles repair and recover.

    No I didn't know that. I did know that they have just done a cola flavour one but I haven't tried it.

    Gatorade I have heard of it but I'm not sure where to get it.

    Maybe I should just get the full fat stuff and hope to work it off!

    Try a health food shop. In OZ they sell these drinks in the drink isle (funny that) in the supermarkets. Pretty sure Tesco's should sell it.

    Apparently the stuff from thailand is so string it would be classed as a drug over here - hence why theirs is different to ours. I can say when I was out there one little bottle a night would keep me up till lunch the next day and it barely affects me at all over here!

    iv had the asda diet one before but i much prefer the Tesco own brand diet 'redbull' stuff, normally 2 for £1.50 and doesnt taste as much of bubblegum as the Asda one in my humble opinion

    Yeah I think I prefer Kick too. It's the bottles that are 2 for £1.50. Do you think that if I brought the bottles and de-fizzed them they would be ok?

    Ha ha I know they are Syn free but what I mean is if I got the bottles (which are fizzy) and kept opening them to let the fizz out and made them flat that they would be ok?

    I find the real Red Bull too sweet after having Blue Charge and Kick. Aldi also do a sugar free energy drink but I forget what it's called
