Celsius – Earth’s First Calorie Burning Soda

It goes without saying that the unofficial beverage of geeks everywhere has to be soft drinks and they probably help contribute a lot to the stereotypical image of geeks being less than physically fit. (ex. Comic Book Guy from The Simpsons.) So something tells me that when a company claims to have “Earth’s First Calorie Burning Soda” it’s going to turn some heads.

Believe it or not Celsius is the first proven “thermogenic” calorie-burning beverage that tastes just like a normal soft drink but can actually help you burn extra calories by raising your metabolism an average of 12% for up to a three hour period.

Thermogenesis literally refers to the creation of heat (thermo: heat, genesis: creation). When we create heat, we burn additional calories. Any substance which stimulates the body’s resting metabolic rate (RMR) and raises body temperature is called a thermogenic agent. Celsius is packed with thermogenic agents that work with your metabolism to turn up the heat in your internal furnace and burn extra calories.

I can only assume this product is safe to consume and probably actually works as they claim but I think the company will need their very own Jared-esque spokesperson who loses a significant amount of weight with the product in order for it to really catch on.

At the moment you can order Celsius directly from the company’s website and the soda comes in a variety of flavors including Cola, Lemon-lime, Ginger Ale, Orange and Wild Berry and will set you back $32 for 16 bottles.

    Raises body temperature? Great, now we can replace our fat geeks with fat, sweaty geeks. Maybe it’ll come with deodorant?

    Looks like a great product, but I wouldn’t recommend purchasing off the web site. The application is vulnerable to SQL Injection and it appears at first glance to allow a fair amount of unauthorized access to the MS SQL Database: Microsoft SQL Server 2000 – 8.00.2039 (Intel X86) May 3 2005 23:18:38 Copyright (c) 1988-2003 Microsoft Corporation Enterprise Edition on Windows NT 5.2 (Build 3790: Service Pack 1)

    I heard about this soda from some marketing magazine geared toward getting people to invest in the company. I was about to throw the magazine in the garbage and something said take a look at the company. All the web research gave Celsius “props”. So I decided to buy 200 shares, what could it hurt the stock is cheap. I finally got around to ordering some through the vitamin shoppe. Tried the lemon lime today. I drank it hot. The taste wasn’t bad; of course it would taste better chilled. The interesting thing is that the soda does have a nice little kick to it. It will definitely give you a “pick me up”. Coffee makes me a little jittery, but Celsius doesn’t. One news channel did a study and people actually lost 5 pounds drinking this soda in a week (might have been two don’t quote me). Over all I am a fan and not because I bought stock in the company. I generally like this product. For those who drink diet soda my thought is why grab a diet soda if you want something with low calories when you can grab a Celsius and burn calories just by drinking it. It’s a no brainer. Will definitely have to order some more to sample all the flavors.
