Mum thinks they're bad and she's not the only one.

I however see nothing wrong with them, they provide you with a good dose of protein, contain digestive enzymes and contain very little fat.

So what's everyones problem with them!!!!
Your thoughts???

Tbh I think thats rubish as i know for a fact that an international rugby player drank them.

Tbh I think they are good as they give an increased healthy source of protein without the high fat content, as well as aiding the digestive system in extracting the most nutrience possible from the food and such which you eat. They are not there to be used as meal replacments they are to be taken along side a propper full balanced diet. Then you should have no problems and infact they can be very good for you.

Energy drinks to me are not even in the same league, energy drinks contain just a lot of caffeine therefore just making your brain hyperactive and more stimulated. Yes they can have some positive effect on performance but it is only for a short time, this is because it will replenish the sugar glucose levels untill they are used up again. Taking energy drinks in an excess can be extremely bad for you as in can cause sleeplessness, increase nervousness (worse for people who already suffer from high anxiety) as well as abnormal heart rhythems.

Having said all of this i do not agree with other artificial body aiding drugs, anything from beta blockers to creatine tablets. I do not agree with artificially increasing levels of certain hormones and chemicals in the body which are all improtant to making energy and also changing the speed at which the natural reactions occur...

Would be interested in your thoughts ??
This is just my opinion and some facts to back up the reasons i am saying it. Im not saying you have to agree just expressin my opinion.

I actually think protein shakes can be an asset if you are building fitness in an intelligent fashion and looking at what you eat? Maybe help to combat an excess of McDonalds?
