Celsius and Seepage

Here’s a new product for you. It’s a soft drink called Celsius that actually burns 100 calories per serving. Apparently, it temporarily raises the body’s metabolism and heat-producing mechanism after you drink it.

And, of course, it contains a whopping amount of caffeine – twice as much as a cup of coffee. I wonder what effect that has on its calorie-burning qualities. If I wanted to lose weight by drinking a soft drink, I’d want to be mellowed out by it; I much prefer mellowness, especially while burning calories.

It’ll be interesting to see what folks do with this product.

Remember back in the late 90s, Lays came out with those potato chips made with “Olestra”? It was a fat substitute or something like that. It kept your body from actually digesting the fat I think.

A friend of mine back then was dieting and would just eat gobs of these Olestra-laden potato chips, thinking they were a diet food item. That is, until we read the fine print which stated:

“May cause anal seepage.”

Oh my goodness, now there’s a real selling point for you. Gimme some of that. Incessant amounts of teasing ensued after that.

Anyway, Celsius comes in the following flavors: Orange, Lemon-Lime, Cola, Ginger Ale, and Wild Berry.

Already, folks are mixing it with whisky and some bars are serving a Celsius and Crown.

Time will tell if there are any seepage issues.

the fine print on the Alli (a prescription diet pill) suggests you wear dark pants while on the program because of the possibility of anal leakage.
I don't want to lose weight THAT badly.
