Also my friend advised on Ice Tea drinks too but these also seem full of sugar.
Energy drinks are worthless, especially when trying to lose weight. Just stay well fed to keep metabolism going, don't workout on an empty stomach it will only ruin your workout. Stay away from empty sugars, a banana and a glass of water would be a better choice.
