Lately? Nothing.

Water, water, water. Can get hard to maintain after awhile, so.. Slightly revised: Sips of Pepsi.. I did say "sips." Making one 20-oz bottle last over three days. Thats good energy.

I've tried black coffee. Its next to impossible to sip even a small cup of blistering hot coffee. Cream or Milk and Sugar make it unhealthy, where as black coffee is good for you. Will not work for active lifestyle, unless you have a way to keep the cup somewhere you can sip from it. Then its a good possibility.

I've tried Red Bull. It truly is the most overpriced drink, you pay for those skiing commercials and giant MMA or sporting event placements in the Octagon. Even Monster is cheaper.

Nos is good, but has so much sugar its unreal.

Monster? The only one that tastes good is the old-fashioned green one. That's some strong stuff. I have drank "twice." Have to pass. It is just too strong.

They no longer make a good Rockstar. They discontinued Guava a long time now, and the Punched needs the black top, the Red top does not taste right.

There is an energy drink called "C Tormenta" if you can find it. It's like Blueberry tinged Red Bull. Good energy.

Which ones have I left out?

Kickstart. There are several flavors so I don't get tired of it. Lime is my favorite.

I try not to get addicted, but I tend to feel happier & be more productive when I have some coffee (probably 3 times a week).


If I need a little pick-me-up, sometimes I'll take a little caffeinated mint during the day.


But mostly, I agree with the more natural remedies:
Sleep
Drink lots of water (1/2 your body weight in ounces - yes, you'll pee a lot!)
Exercise daily as often as possible (but at least once a day)
Have goals to be excited about

Water. I start my day with water, drink it during the day, drink it before each meal, with each meal, between meals, and before I go to bed.

In the past I was a big Pepsi drinker and I even got hooked on Rock Star energy drinks. I have had Monster Energy drinks as well. What I have found though is a need to flush all that stuff out of my system, spend an hour a day working out, and sleep 7 or 8 hours a night.

Coffee, though I just drink it because I like it, not as an energy booster. Caffeine had no notable effect on me unless it's really large amounts.

You beat me to it. Yes, Mountain Dew's newish Kickstart drinks have caffeine, B-vitamins and only 80 calories for 16 ounces. They give me nice rejuvenation without the loss to my immunity system that Red Bull, Monster and those kind of energy drinks often do (in other words I can get colds and flus from them).
I regard Kickstarts as the first somewhat healthy Mountain Dew product and they taste great... like regular soda only lighter.

Some convenience stores are offering Kickstart in their soda fountains. Awesome!

Water, with a little lemon juice. I go through half a gallon to a gallon a day, depending on how active I am.

I really don't know how people drink those Monster, Bawlz, Red Bull drinks. They taste so nasty.

I just drink water, or sweet tea and coke on occasion.
