Every time we turn around coffee is good for us. Then the next week it's not good for us.
With conflicting studies and reports, I basically just did my own thing when it came to coffee without thinking another thing about it. I suppose deep down I really knew the amount of coffee I was drinking wasn't good for me. I was highly addicted to the caffeine in it and I had no plans of giving it up. I figured, "Hey, everything else is healthy. I'll just keep one little thing."
I had no idea that the extra caffeine was hurting me and preventing me from losing weight.
I would put caffeine in my system. During the day, the caffeine would work it's way through my body. Eventually my body would experience a "crash" and I would need another pick-me-up. Over time I conditioned my body to rely on me supplying the caffeine. The extreme fluctuations absolutely exhausted my adrenal system.
What's an important thing your adrenal system controls???
You guessed it.... Metabolism!
Caffeine stimulates the stress hormones in our bodies. The more we drink, the more those hormones are released. Your body tries to adjust to the extra hormones. When you have extra hormones, your body tells your metabolism to cut back in an effort to cope with them.
Then you are stuck in a vicious cycle.

Will I never have another cup of coffee?
I believe you can have a cup of coffee as a treat. I won't be drinking it daily anymore because my health is way more important to me.
