Celsius Calorie Burner Review and Giveaway - 5 Winners

I was first introduced to Celsius at Costco.  It happened to be one of their sample products on one of our many visits.  I really liked the taste and loved the benefits that it promoted.  The thing that instantly captured my attention was that is is suppose to help burn up to 100 calories with each can!

Celsius - Your Ultimate Fitness Partner

Celsius helps you get fit and stay fit. Celsius is your partner whether you walk the dog or workout at the gym. Studies show that drinking a great tasting Celsius before you exercise may help you burn calories, raise metabolism and provide lasting energy to power you through your routine and beyond.* Even better, studies show Celsius may reduce body fat, increase endurance and provide greater resistance to fatigue (increased energy).* These were the results for participants, who drank a Celsius once a day during the 10-week study and on the days they exercised they consumed their daily Celsius 15 minutes prior to exercise.

I am a stay-at-home mother of two young children and I need all the "extra" energy that I can possibly find.  I find that when I drink a Celsius first thing in the morning I feel energized and ready to face whatever the day may bring.

I've never been one to follow weight loss fads or use products that promised miracle results. I think that losing weight takes much more than a magical pill or drink.  I believe that it takes determination, dedication and an overall lifestyle change in order to see direct results.

I started my lifestyle change a few months ago.  I changed my eating habits and started exercising 3 - 4 times a week.  I also began drinking Celsius each morning on my way to the gym.  In the last 3 months, I have lost 13 pounds and 10 inches!

Do I think that Celsuis has helped me on my weight loss journey?  Absolutely!  I like to think of it as my little secret weapon.  It seems to give me that added boost of energy to help keep me focused on my goal.


The flavors are wonderful.  I love the fact that there is enough variety that I'm not going to get tired of drinking the same flavor over and over again.  Too much of one thing can cause a person to get bored and/or give up.  I don't have to worry about that at all.  My favorites are Raspberry Acai, Wild Berry and Apple Orchard.  The only flavor I didn't care for was the Ginger Ale.  (But I've never liked Ginger Ale)  I also love the convenient on-the-go packets.  I keep them in my truck and in my purse, so I always have them with me.


Celsius comes in a variety of flavors: 

  • Orange
  • Wild Berry
  • Cola
  • Ginger Ale
  • Raspberry Acai
  • Peach Mango
  • Lemon Iced Tea
  • Strawberry Kiwi
  • Apple Orchard Blend **NEW**


    They also have Celsius Calypso Punch, 2.5 oz Shots and Celsius On-the-Go Powder Sticks.

    • Low Calorie
