There's a lot of crazy publicity happening for foods and drinks that are supposed to boost your diet. Well, the Center for Science and Public Interest (CSPI), a non-profit food watch dog group, is out there to protect you from corporate America's crafty advertising and marketing. They just sent a serious warning to Coke and Nestle the makers of Enviga - their new negative calorie drink.
CSPI says they will sue the companies if they continue to market the drink with fraudulent calorie burning and weight loss claims, since the science behind the drinks is a little flimsy. The lawsuit would seek to stop the deceptive marketing behind the product that is to launch nationwide early next year. Plus the amount of caffeine in one can of Enviga is almost equal to that of 3 cans of coke.
Fit's tip: Stick to water. It has zero calories, is free (not $1.29 a can like Enviga) and it is great for you.
