Caffeine Update

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

Well I have modified the diet. It was too harsh cutting out almost all sugar. I am back to recording what I eat and trying to do everything in moderation. The big result so far is that I have cut out all the caffeine now for over 2 weeks. I had occasional pangs for the pepsi, but once the withdrawal symptoms subsided, it has not been too bad.

I reckon this is saving me about 13 to 30 a week in Pepsi alone and about a further 10 in red bull (so up to 90 so far taking off the sparkling water I have replaced it with)

    I agree cutting everything out can't work. I tried cutting fake sugars first all the artifical stuff, then I went on to looking at lables for things with lower sugar, (like cerials) now i'm looking for little to no added sugar options. (Like switching to oatmeal) now i'm trying to get all my sugar from my fruit.

Good luck to you congrats on the caffeene!

    I just drink black coffee so the cost is minimal but I have cut back on that too.

    emoticon I think that the chemicals in diet soda are just bad for you all around. Good job on cutting them out. I used to drink several sodas a day, now it is rare if I ever have one. I still have a little bit of caffeine (tea), but nothing like I used to. Once you get through the withdrawal you will feel so much better without it.
