When I was researching the health benefits versus risks of coffee drinking for this post, I decided that I should definitely try and give up coffee again. I gave up all caffeine in January for one month and found that my digestion got so sluggish without it that it was causing more harm than good. This time, I am trying just no coffee. I am still drinking some black tea and green tea (maybe 3-4 cups per day, so still less caffeine than my two single-shot Americanos would be). I miss coffee but have always enjoyed tea, so it’s much easier to give up one and not both. I wish I could say that I’ve noticed much difference. I’m not. Although, I’m not noticing the sluggish digestion that I suffered from last time either. I may not be noticing an improvement due in part to the fact that I’ve been eating more foods containing nuts or eggs than normal (I’ve been quite stressed and run down and find it much harder to abstain when I’m tired). Or, it might be because coffee wasn’t a problem for me. I am resolved to clean up my diet and keep going without coffee for another 3 weeks. I’ll let you know how it goes.
