Day 4 sans Coffee

Countdown without coffee/caffeine

heachaches: mild
energy: ever so slightly improving
digestion: questionable.

Sorry to get graphic but I'm an advocate of the daily, or twice daily, big easy poo.  This change from coffee to Mate' may be throwing off my digestive tract...  I haven't made any other changes to my diet, so it's isolated in the analysis.

I was not thrilled with the way my digestion reacted at first to this anti-grain, legume, dairy lifestyle, but it took about a week, I think, to adjust and regulate.  hmm... (narrowing my eyes at the herbal tea)... we'll see about you.

Today, I am very tempted to return to coffee.  sigh... but I won't.  It's worth giving it at least two weeks to give my body a reset before making that call. 
However, I will be switching teas tomorrow.  tba.


  1. Good job stick with it! :) Coffee acts as a false digestive aid almost like sugar gives a false other words it isn't the healthy way to achieve what you're after but it gives the result you're looking for. Mate or just herbal teas will do way more for healthy digestion than coffee, but it just might take awhile! Proud of you girl!

  2. Thanks for the encouragement... Yes I want the truth, not the false counterfeit for energy and health.
