  • while there may not be any conclusive evidence one way or the other I would just trust your gut. If your asking this question it must be that something in you thinks it probably isn't good.

    I tried to keep my diet as natural as possible. It was VERY hard for me to cut out my morning cup and afternoon energy drink but I'm glad I did

  • Rather than looking to The Quick Fix, try to go to the source first, overall.

    If you are tired, get some rest/drink water/nourish yourself/investigate iron levels, etc.
    If you have a headache do the same before you medicate...

    There are important reasons your body is telling you these things, it's important to listen and not look for caffeine or other possibly harmful things to cover it up.
    Listen when your body is talking to you~

    Good luck!

  • i would say the big huge cans of monster or rock stars are bad or the whole shot of 5 hour energy is bad...but (and dont hate me for this) i do take little sips off of my boyfriends venom's or what ever energy drink he has(usually monsters/rock stars/amps/or venoms)....even though he yells at me for it >.< i cant stop drinking just a tiny bit every once in a while since i used to drink 3 or 4 every day till 4 months before my 18th birthday last year(i started drinking them when i was 15 lol)

  • Yes. With, or without baby they are not good for you.
