I can understand the regular cup of coffee which has certain amount of caffeine, but imagine being bombarded with very high levels of caffeine and then sugar too!
caffeine is a stimulant and improves alertness .drowsiness goes away and person can remain awake for long periods without feeling sleepy.person feels more energetic.

more the caffeine more the effects.high dose caffeine means you cant sleep even when you eventually want to.

however high dose caffeine causes acidity,especially burning in the stomach.

sugar is fine for high energy activity as it gives glucose which is needed for it.
temporary intake of high amount sugar does not damage the body.

but diabetics beware......it will lead to hyperglycemic coma.
