no it just makes u have a higher chance of having a heart atack
It doesn’t necessarily make you lose weight, but it helps you get where you want to. Since it has less sugar (so less calories) it doesn’t make you gain weight as much as the traditional red bull. Also, when you are dieting, sometimes you feel more tired than normally. Red Bulls have loads of caffeine, both the sugar free one and the normal one, and that gives you more energy that you can use instead of energy from food. Caffeine doesn’t have calories, and cant make you gain weight, but still gives you energy.
P.S. Drinking too many red bulls, whether sugar free or not, is unhealthy.
I am testing whether red bull does make you lose weight. Reason I think so, last time I dropped a lot of weight very fast with no change to my diet, I noticed the only thing I was doing was drinking a lot of red bull during that time. I have started drinking two cans of diet redbull a day today and am going to see if I start to lose weight again, as I had a few on holiday recently and started to lose weight again.
I will withhold jumping to conclusions, but am going to see if it does.
how is that workin 4 u? i am looking to lose 10lbs in 4/5weeks. i do weight training and some light excercise, walking, random dancing etc.. bt i havn’t had much luck, hopin suga free red bull will give me dat xtra boost. how long till u saw results?
I had the same expeirence and i’m trying the same thing I think it is the taurine ingredent that my body is responding too
I drink two diet red bulls a day since last summer..I have gained 30 pounds, and since that is the only change in my diet..I started researching diet red bull..hence finding this site..and the artificial sweeteners will make you gain weight, especially in the sugar free! So take my advice..dont drink it, dont start..I cant work without or I get soo tired..and now I am kicking my *** because gaining 30 pounds was not fun and losing it is proving extremly difficult!!!
Sounds like amandajanedobso increased her body fat significantly more after her post or dropped dead from too much taurine.
Kick this shitt!!! Sugar free redbulls the best!!! I drink one can and my belly empties out that day and i feel lighter, and i am trying to lose 20lbs so its good encouragement to get down to 120lbs (height 5′9, age 15)
so lets hope, hope it does!!! and 3 cups of coffee a day is shown to burn 90 extra cals a day, think of what this **** does!!!
I lost 11 pounds in 1 week. I drank 1 can of red bull a day and eat normally.
Same here ,,, I drink 1 or 2 max cans of light red bull a day and I m very impressed by the weight that i lost .. I do exercise too, but still .. I always had and I never lsot weight like that .. When I say weight I mean fat of course .. Also, I feel like red bull light kind of “fills me” when I get a little hungry … plus it gives me a lot of energy ..
when i was younger and active i drank red bulls constantly and stayed super thin. now that im a wife and mother and i am less active i started drinking them agian to get through the day. in the last 2 months of drinking them i have gained 8 pounds and i have actually been more active than i was before drinking them eating healthier foods and less junk. i used to drink regular red bull but now im drinking sugar free. i think the artificial sweetener is causing me to gain weight. what do you guys think?
no the for the red bull to help you lose weight you have to cut the calories as well as drink the red bull so when you feel tired from less food entering your body the red bull will give you the extra energy to keep going when you haven’t eaten. of course this isn’t the healthiest thing in the world to do but when i tried this method i lost 100lbs in 6 months. the tricky part after is keeping your calories low and still maintaining a healthy exercise routine when you aren’t taking the redbull.
im doing a project on the pulse after a caffene over dose hop e all goes well
I think depending entirely on diet red bull to lose weight is daft, I will drink diet red bull only on days where maybe i haven’t been so active.. it raises the heart rate to trick the body into thinking it’s exercising and ultimately kills a few calories.. but as previously said depending on red bull to lose weight would not necessarily be beneficial, it could be harmful.
I have been losing weight for 6 months now. I have lost about 35 pounds. I started drinking red bull regulars again for about a week now. I have gained 3 pounds. I don’t eat very much at all. I think red bulls makes you gain weight. I never tried the sugar free though. I think I will. Does it taste as good as the original? I like the pick me up from the red bull, but, I would rather be tired, and losing weight, then energetic and gaining weight.
I want to see the before and after pics, along with pics of amanda on a scale…. >:+]
Red Bull can help you lose weight, but obviously you are going to gain weight if you keep the same diet on top of adding red bull. The red-bull is supposed to be in place of a huge meal- try replacing a meal (not breakfast) with a sugar-free red bull and a light snack (fruit, veggies, etc.) and you will lose weight for sure. It helps your metabolism a ton.
But bottom line, you have to change your diet for it to work. There’s no way you can eat the same diet and just assume redbull will make you burn off all those calories. Just think of redbull as a way to curve the appetite.
* The sugar free has a more watered-down taste than the original. I choose it over the original because it only has 10 calories in an 8-ounce can and won’t give you a sugar crash. I got used to the lighter taste, but it’s all up to you*
I think the sugar free version must make you lose weight as I hav been on a diet since xmas and had lost well, then hit a plateau. I didnt do it intentionally but was feeling very tired so began to have a can of diet red bull in the afternoon -nothing else changd in diet but i did lose 7lbs in 2 weeks so for me the anwer is yes. Having then read the can - it does say - ’stimulates metabolism’ so thats probably why.
imm wanying to mlose weight quick and was thinking of replacing breakfast and lunch with red bull, has anyone done this and has it worked?
wiseman.nikk I am doing it for 2 weeks now ( 2 cans a day) and worked out prefectly for me since I don’t feel hunger. I drink one free sugar in the morning and around 12 pm I take the second one with a protein cereal bar and apple..and I’m not hungry for the rest of the day.
how much weight have you lost and what was yr start weight if you dont mind me asking
Yeah it totally helps I lost 1 stone in 2 month drinking 1 can a day
did you eat or just drink a can a day???????????
Omg this is unbeleieveable i am going to try this!
i have read everyones comments and am going to try it from tomorrow will let you all know how i get on
I drank 6 cans yesterday,n tht was pretty much the only thing I ate or drnak the whole day,n I lost weight,but still has more than enough energy! It makes you full,so you dnt want to eat after at least 2 cans,so yeah.Thts probably why lady gaga is so skinny,she lives on coffein-loaded energy drinks.
i drink red boll for long time and i am stell not skiney as i want to be an the make ma hate my self and my how i loke i wase alwes skiney i get and waihte wane i came to candnda age 13
I love sugar free red bull, I think the regular is too sweet and find it gives me a headache. I think drinking the sugar free can help, I like to drink a can of V8 right before opening a can of red bull, and use that to replace lunch. I think the fact that it has alot of B vitamins helps your body with more a more natural source of energy, add the caffeine and Whoa! I don’t like to drink more than one can a day (either 8 oz or 12 oz, depending on the day’s stress level), just because of the artifical sweeteners the sugar free has - and there have been lots of studies that show that they do lead to weight gain… but mostly because people who drink or eat alot of sugar substitutes tend to eat more (i.e. people who order a super sized meal with fries and a large diet coke…).
it’s so funny. i just bought the sugar free red bulls to study for midterms and i changed my diet slightly yo eat more veggies to not be sluggish and tired i think i lost 4lbs in 3 days. so i decided to google this and see if this has happened to anyone. Yeah now im on a red bull diet!!!
I googled too as heard this about weight loss and need to lose a stone in a month - red bull quite pricey though do you think supermarket own brand will do same??
i lost 2lbs in 3days with sugar free red bull .. A*
Red Bull helps you lose weight because of the taurine in it. Taurine is an organic acid, and it has also been known to be an appetite suppresnt. I have been drinkng redbull for a week and I have lost seven pounds. I eat a very small bowl of bran flakes and I have one to two sugar free red bulls a day and I just very small meals through out the day.
Taurine is a free beta-amino acid which can be produced by the body. It occurs in the highest concentration in the brain, the retina and in the myocardium (heart muscle).
I lost 30 pounds in 3mths drinking Sugar Free Red Bull, plus changing my diet and replacing my snacks with a 8.4 floz can. Walking for exercise also helps.
I’ve been drinking about 2 cans every day one before school, one before work. I’ve been very stressed out and when I get stressd out I turn to food. Normally I gain weight when this happens. However I haven’t! And I been eating foods high in fat, carbs and sugar and now that im drinking the redbull (sugarfree) I believe the caffeine and vitamins in it HELP burn off the calories. I say help because I keep active at work and that must have something to do with it.
So in my case I didn’t lose weight, it just helped me keep of the extra pounds. On account that caffeine itself aides in burning calories, and redbull is full of that stuff plus other vitamins that can also help
I didnt know any of this about red bull, as i have a young son that does be sick quiet a lot i started drinking 2 cans of red bull a day just so i can function after been up all night and i am absolutly amazed at the results, i have lost a stone and a half in 5 weeks….I know its not the healthyests of options but at the min this is the only thing working for me.
how would this work if i just drank like 8 of these a day without eating?
All I know is that since I’ve been drinking the diet Red bull I haven’t been as hungry, still eating of course but just less. Also roughly 2 cans a day healthier food options, and I’ve lost 15lbs in two weeks. I am working out once and day as well.
kk i want to loose weight in 3 weeks would smoking cigarettes and drinking red bull plus living on noodles and doing excercise every day for 2 hrs… would make u loose weight?????
I smoke too so that’s fine. Stick to diet red bull though. And if u are just eating noodles your not getting proper nutrients. But if that’s all u eat just eat small portions and you should lose some weight in three weeks.
kiss ma *** suckers
Would not recommend redbull.. very bad for your heart and kidneys.. i drank 3cans a day of diet redbull and some of my teeth broke off!! 1 every now and then is fine, but def dont drink more than 1 per day. My personal experience, but scared me half to death. Ive not drank redbull for a whole week, feel so much better, lost weight and dont feel so bloated. Worth a try :0)
I had my first big can (500ml) last night and went clubbing, didnt drink alch. It was soo good I cold dance all night. I usually get tired by 11pm if I’m sober. It’s a great substitute to alch and coke. I think I might start a diet of diet red bull every fri and sat night. See if I can burn squill ions of cals over the weekends. Interestingly I also ate a diet protein bar with it the jumbo red bill, they had the same calories. Why would a jumbo sugar full red bull have the same cals as a diet bar?
im am trying this red bull diet too it worked for my friend so its worth giving it a try!!
everyone has there own opinion however i used to weigh 300 and i lost 150 lbs that’s right a whole person drinking sugar free red bull and eating healthy it speeds your metabolism … be careful i also overdosed on caffeine from way to much i was drinking them all day and taking diet pills but for sure it works
