The Red Bull Diet Plan

May 28, 2010 Leave a comment

When Brooke Robertson, 23 years old, of New Zealand, chugged a couple Red Bulls one day, she made an unusual discovery: She wasn’t hungry.  This discovery snapped into place in the context of Brooke’s depression about weighing 231 pounds. 

 For the next 8 months, Brooke ingested nothing but 10 to 14 Red Bull energy drinks per day, and a handful of dry cereal, going from 231 pounds to 132 pounds.

 Saying the expensive Red Bull diet ($20-28 per day) was not a conscious decision at first, the reckless Brooke Robertson said.

“I just started drinking it. I wasn’t sleeping, I wasn’t eating – I was exhausted.  I just continued to drink it because it’s an appetite suppressant and I noticed I was losing weight so stuck with it.”

Despite the piling up of Red Bull empty cans, Brooke said that she somehow managed to keep her Red Bull energy drink addiction secret from family and friends.

The Red Bull diet sage ended when Brooke Robertson, with her body obviously overwhelmed with the high caffeine and sugar intake, suffered from a heart attack.

“I managed to wean myself off it by being in hospital for that long but I had severe withdrawals – sweating, nausea, shaking. It was an addiction

Discovering a Red Bull energy drink diet might actually kill her, Brooke Robertson now says she maintains her weight through real life conventional exercise and a healthy eating diet.

But the long-term heath problems for Brooke persist, she still suffers from heart problems, gets severe pain and cramping in her stomach and bowel, and suffers anxiety attacks from the caffeine and sugar Red Bull addiction, all at the youthful age of 23…but at least she lost weight, right?
