Wait... so you are sayin Chocolate is bad or good? I am confused... make up your mind!
Chocolate has sugars and fat. That is why it is a high calorie food. You say sugars are bad for me? I'll try to remind my cells of that fact as they break down polysacharides and disacharides and convert to make glucose (which they break down into pyruvic acid etc etc etc) to make ATP so my body can SURVIVE.
I drink coffee and tea when I am backpacking. I try to do it when there will be at least a few hours before I'm pumping my heart hard. Nobody is selling coffee as a zero calorie energy drink. Even diet Red Bull has calories ;-) Calories represent energy.
But, I'll try to remember your product the next time I'm in a volleyball tourney ;-)
