Espresso Addict Takes #NoCoffeeChallenge - The Surprising Results!

Are you one of the millions of people who rely on coffee to get you through your day? Meet Amy Andrew. She is a 29-year-old writer who needs coffee to survive her hectic workweek and even to power through her gym sessions. She often picks espresso as her caffeine fix of choice, getting an average 5 shots per day. But what happens when she gives up the bean for just one week? health benefits quitting coffee Things started off rough for coffee addict Amy. "I usually wake up and down an espresso first thing, so going to the gym without my pick-me-up was a struggle - psychologically probably more than anything else, but still a struggle." she explains. "I found it difficult to focus during my personal training session – my coach had to repeat sentences several times – and I left a bit grumpy." Dodging hard core cravings, work day slumps and even a giant sign in the subway station that said "FREE COFFEE", Amy managed to survive her first few days. "Without caffeine, socialising in the evenings and getting up early to go to the gym meant I felt more tired than usual at the office by the end of the week." Amy said about her fifth day coffee-free. After seven whole days, what was Amy's reactions to her coffee cleanse? "I enjoy drinking coffee, I love the taste and aroma, and it’s a great pick-me-up when I’m feeling tired at work. I don’t want to give it up completely, but I realise now that I rarely need to have it – I just like to." she admits. Giving up on caffeine or at least reducing it can not only keep some extra change in your pocket, but it can lower your blood pressure, promote better sleeping habits, decrease your level of anxiety and actually help you lose weight. caffeine body anxiety mood Take the #NoCoffeeChallenge and give up caffeine for just one week!
