I'm drinking decaf now! I know it has a little in it still but I feel much better.
I can't drink sucralose- major tummy troubles. I don't know how many times I'm drinking away a "diet" something, look at the label and see sucralose- ugh! You'd think I'd look first! emoticon

LOL! This just cracked me up - I was adding some flavoring to my bottled water this morning and I really looked at the label today. It's an iced tea flavor. Wheels start spinning in my head. Ingredient list. First, citric acid. OK. Second. Instant tea.

Groan. Self-sabotage!!! I drink this in the afternoon too, in place of (you guessed it) the coffee!!!!

Well, it doesn't have as MUCH caffeine as the coffee did, but any caffeine at 3pm is too much caffeine.

Doh!

Now that your blood sugar is stabilizing you're probably just a lot more aware of its impact on you. I'm pretty caffeine-sensitive myself, and at long last I'm cutting out all but the first cup of coffee in the morning. I'm still having 2 small decafs at work, but I'll be phasing even those out in a few weeks.

Some science:

"The stimulated nerve cells release the hormone epinephrine (adrenaline), which increases heart rate, blood pressure, and blood flow to muscles, decreases blood flow to the skin and organs, and causes the liver to release glucose. Caffeine also increases levels of the neurotransmitter dopamine."

Which explains a little about why it's somewhat addictive, and also why it gives people the jitters - a dumping of adrenaline plus glucose.

Thanks! My husband does make it very strong we grind/burr our own. I drink about 16 oz with cream. I can't figure out what else would make me jittery. It doesn't help me sleep either LOL! if I drink it late in the day!

I don't have any issues with coffee/caffeine - I drink 5-6 cups of coffee at least every day. I've drank coffee since I was a teenager. I drink it black and probably a little stronger than I should. Although I do drink my last for the day about 3 or 4 in the afternoon, I no longer drink coffee in the evening. If I want something hot to drink, I'll have a cup of decaffeinated tea or even de-caf coffee.

It doesn't make any difference in the lo carb aspect of my eating.

I drink too much caffeine but eating low carb does not result in the caffeine making me more jittery

Have you heard of herbal coffee? There is a brand called Teechino that is a tea bag. However, it contains 2 carbs with 1 sugar. So may not be good for this plan. That is what I drank for coffee when I was on the vegan cleanse, which allowed no caffeine at all.
Again, this is new for me so truly don't know if this kind of thing is allowed yet on this plan.

Too much caffeine gives me headaches now. I'm being forced to cut way back. I'm only drinking tea in the mornings now.

My morning cup of coffee is making me feel extra jittery. Anyone else have this on LC? I'm surprised because I have had this same amount of coffee daily for years! emoticon
Thanks!
