Okay, after several good SparkBuddies answered my last blog, I have reconsidered my stand on caffeine. I will aim for moderation and add tea to my daily schedule, since no power on earth will get me to drink coffee. emoticon Especially informative (and entertaining) was the YouTube video :

The poor woman who died also smoked and had a lot of bad nutrition habits, which must have all had an effect on her health.
That being said, I found another example of what bizarre methods will employ in the quest for health:

Eat healthy, exercise, track your progress, take a reasonable amount of time to reach your goals. It may take longer to get to your goal weight than living on sunshine or ingesting tapeworms, but at least you'll live to enjoy your health!

    The benefits of caffeine are hyper-inflated by lay people who love it and are often addicted to it. I used to be one of them. LOL. But then I became a coronary nurse. All caffeine causes coronary artery constriction and this is definitely not good for you. Palpitations can often be traced to caffeine use.

Like I said, if you use caffeine you need to keep it to the level of one 8 ounce cup a day then you can still get the benefits without the risk. Most doctors will allow a cup a day unless you are caffeine sensitive. If you are caffeine sensitive, like many, then you should forgo it.

I use decaffeinated tea. You still get a little caffeine in your diet but not in amounts that can be harmful. All things in moderation.

    Ok, officially that is insane of that lady. What a way to go (I'm cringing). I read the article and I'm stunned - what some people wouldn't do. I'll give her this much; she has greater self control than me.

Healthy, balanced life-style.... I'm with you on that one. It's the way to go :-)
