I've just gone on a rant on our Facebook page after reading
about a backlash against the proliferation of energy drink
sponsorship in 'extreme sports' targeting the kids and teenage
markets with products that are extremely bad for them. The
rant was prompted by this article which filled me with joy,
Here is what I wrote on Facebook, check it out to leave your
comments at our Facebook page.
This is a really positive step. Although energy drink co's
do pump lots of money into 'minority sports' and 'extreme sports'
you'd have to be pretty accepting to not see it as a simple and
cynical way to hit the teenage market. 'Energy drinks' have
crept fairly unregulated into mainstream conscience and are now
very easily available. Make no mistake, they are EXTREMELY
bad for you, packed with sugar, caffeine and highly
addictive. We have witnessed first hand the marked change in
behaviour in kids when they drink them, unsurprisingly they go a
bit nuts, full of unneeded stimulants. We know lots of top
athletes, none of whom would go near energy drinks, even just the
sugar filled 'isotonic' ones. If you really are exercising
long enough to justify using them (at least an hour) then you can
save a fortune by adding a pinch of salt and sugar to plain water,
flavour with your favourite cordial and that will keep your body
going. From experience we know that you can train up to ten
hours straight in hot conditions without using any energy drinks,
just the aforementioned combination and some solid food. Few
things make us sadder than seeing kids drinking a huge bottle
of energy drink or seeing the state of people who can't start
a days work without them. That is not a healthy way to be, it
is an addiction which will affect your general health, ability to
sleep, ability to concentrate, heart rate and will ultimately lead
to the numerous physical and mental health issues attached to
excessive sugar and caffeine intake. Rant over, food for
It's the New Year and for so many people that means a few weeks
of 'transformation' followed by a familiar lull back into the
normal unhealthy routine. IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE THAT WAY!
Here at NI Bootcamp we specialise in making your healthier
lifestyle permanent so that you feel so good all the time that the
idea of eating the horrendous junk that some companies call food
will sicken you. We know it works because we've been there
ourselves as have many of our previous bootcampers who just came to
us with an open mind and are now different people, several stone
lighter, a lot fitter and also enjoying better skin, sleep and
better general mental health, all of which are side effects of a
healthy lifestyle. We are currently posting our dinners on
the NI Bootcamp Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/nibootcamp to give
people ideas on what is fuelling us here at NI Bootcamp. We
also have places available on our January Detox
Weekend for those of you who really want to start 2012 the
way you mean to go on. Contact us for more details.
