Guarana is used in many weight loss accelerator pills as increasing your heart rate is meant to encourage weight loss. Personally it makes me shaky and hard to sleep, so I think it's one of those things you can try and see how your body reacts to it. In regards to alcohol, if you feel that you must, then I'd recommend either gin or vodka with a diet soft drink or soda water and real lime juice.

Best way to use guarana, or any caffeine for that matter, is right before your workout. I always have a coffee before I go to the gym - it help a lot.

My vote for alcohol is white wine. Besides the fact that it is delicious, its reasonably low in carbs, and you don't need to drink too much of it to get an effect. And probably a bit heathier than the diet soft drinks that you'd have with spirits, jsut cos of the artificial sweetners etc. (Aside: just learnt something funny about soft drinks - did you know the main ingredient is phosphoric acid, which is... horse piss!!! Its true :lol: Turned me off soft drinks for good now I think :oops: )

Phosphoric acid is actually hydrogen, phosphorus and oxygen. Not sure where you got the horse piss idea from? We learnt about some of the chemicals in softmdrink in my uni course and horse piss definitely isnt one of them :)
