I find limiting caffeine to be crucial for me.

As Kendilynn said, it's not about caffeine. If you're getting caffeine from drinks or foods with calories, giving up those calories might help, or you could switch to something with fewer calories. In my case, for example, I didn't want to give up coffee, but I realized that I was getting up to 150 calories a day from the cream I put in it. Switching to fat-free half-and-half or skim milk trimmed that down to 35 or so, which made a pretty significant difference.

Caffeine by itself, in moderate amounts, isn't harmful and doesn't cause weight issues for most people. And some foods/drinks that contain caffeine are actually good for you. Coffee and tea, for example, have a lot of antioxidants. That benefit isn't enough to justify starting to drink coffee, but it does mean that if you drink those things and don't want to give them up, you shouldn't feel like you have to.

Giving up caffeine or other unhealthy drinks/foods may be a motivation for getting and staying healthy. Worth a try!!

I don't think the caffeine is a problem, but the extras that come with many caffeinated beverages. Soda (regular or diet), creamer and sugar in your coffee, flavored sweetened teas. I drink a few cups of black coffee every morning, but I drink plenty of water to make up for the dehydrating properties. I'm curious to hear an expert's opinion though.

Does anyone think giving up caffeine can help weight loss?
