Last month, the caffeine stopped working for me and I couldn’t drink more thanks to my heart palpitations. Realizing something must be going on, I decided to try and go back to a healthier lifestyle. After quitting coffee cold turkey, I started eating less food and drinking more juice to try and get the coffee remnants out of my system faster. I also drank Green Tea Matcha for a little energy. This seemed to work well, I didn’t even crave the coffee or get the horrible headaches for the first week and a half after quitting.
I started with a 3 day cleanse from Pressed Juicery. Took a few days off, then followed by a Sambazon 3 pack from Costco and ate lightly. If I wanted to follow their recipes, I would have to go the store again so I just decided not to follow the book menu. I did drink the juices when they said to. After one day on Sambazon, I started the Chef-V cleanse which was 3 days long, then resumed the other two days of the Sambazon juices and not eating great. I picked up the Cleanse on Groupon. I think I ate healthy for a few days and then resumed a junkier diet. Over the past few days, we took a mini vacation and I ate horribly on it of course. Tons of meat, potatoes, grease, etc. Not surprisingly, now that it’s Monday, I am paying for it with my extremely foggy brain and fatigue. So, the coffee won today but I’m not giving up!
