Coffee or not!!

FAQ

Posted by Pounder on 9 months ago

Just started juicing today. My plan is to juice for breakfast and lunch and eat a reasonable dinner (chicken and salad). Here's my question....is coffee okay to drink? Or should I get off of it all together?

    The purist will say quit the coffee, and you would probably be healthier if you did. Also, high levels of caffeine on a reboot is a bad thing because it will cause your blood sugar to roller coaster. A cup of coffee on an empty stomach hits like a ton of bricks, and when it wears off a few hours later, the crash can take your blood sugar with it. If at all possible, quit the coffee BEFORE the reboot. You do not want to go through caffeine withdrawals during your reboot if you don't know what you are getting yourself into, as that just doubles the misery.

    Personally, I keep up the caffeine, I just reduce the quantities.

    I've weaned myself down to 1 cup a day and plan to keep reducing. I realize no nuitritional value. After my coffee I do drink a 16oz bottle of water w 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar which equalizes blood sugar. I am one of the lucky ones that can fall asleep an hour after a cup.

    I gave it up during the reboot. After the first 3 days I didn't need it. I had amazing energy levels! And I work 12hr night shifts!

    I had to give if up if I was going to juice a few times a year. I had a horriible detox when I was on coffee. I did not want to go through it again.

    l will have my espresso, one (1oz of liquid and yes 9 calories) per day. My liver can take it. And if there is any adverse affect, physicaly or psychologicly l will say so. Any comments?

    I say go for it. I'm not a purist, and one espresso on a reboot won't hurt your liver in the least. Watch your blood sugar, as caffeine on a reboot can send it on a roller coaster. You might find the need to back off a bit, but play it by ear and see how it goes.

    If anything, a shot of espresso can help with the weight loss, though marginally. It revs the metabolism and increases calorie consumption. On the down side, the caffeine crash that can occur a few hours later can be brutal, so I would go for it and see how it goes for you.

    How about green tea? A cup of tea a day on Reboot be ok?

    Green tea is supposedly good for you, and a cup or two a day on the rebbot would be fine. Try to find some high quality Japanese or Korean green tea, you will be amazed at how much better tastes than western green teas. Avoid the cheap asian green teas - like with cheap western teas, they tend to be a bit nasty, ya gotta find the expensive stuff.

    That's my three liquids. 1 cup coffee, then 16 out of water w/ ACV, then green tea for duration of day.

    I find that when I'm on a juice only regimen, my need for caffeine is cut in half. And I usually feel better when I consume less caffeine. You may find in time you can do without the coffee, or without as much. Be careful of the caffeine/sugar roller coaster and crash! I tend to experience caffeine crashes in the afternoon when I drink too much caffeine, and it's worse when juicing only.

    If your goal is to detox, then caffeine puts extra burden on your liver and postpones the cleansing process. However, if you are just looking to lose weight, then caffeine is beneficial as it speeds up your metabolism.
