Have trouble sleeping monitor when you are having drinks with caffeine. I recently read that it takes 11 hours to get caffeine out of your system. A big wake up call for me, I generally have trouble sleeping since I work 3rd shift at a hotel. I quit drinking a bottle of Diet Mountain Dew at work because I was always finishing close to quitting time. I now sleep much better because I'm not trying to go to sleep with caffeine still in my system.102

I try to get 1/2 my 64 oz. of water before noon. And if I fill a glass of water to brush my teeth, I drink it all -- I don't toss the unneeded water. I keep glasses in several rooms with water in them and when I see it, I drink it. It lessens hunger through the day & less to drink at night (bathroom stops).
