Let's talk coffee!

Hi! I've been juicing for about 5 months and have maintained a weight loss of approximately 40 lbs. I started at 208 lbs, and am currently holding between 167 to 171 lbs. I watched both of Joes movies and upon watching the second one, I picked up on a comment about obstaining from coffee. I have never done this with my previous juicing, and while I'm currently initializing a reboot, I want to know what are the reasons behind staying away from the coffee if you're drinking it natural with no added cream or sugar?

    Thanks Stevieb! I did find some information under the FAQ once I looked around a little more. I'm doing a slow ween before jumping right out of the coffee scene, seeing as I've been drinking it avidly since age 12. Hit 165 today... that's over 40 lbs since June!

    Can you please direct us to the info on giving up coffee? The reasons? My husband doesn't want to give it up. I'm a tea drinker so the transition is easier for me. We went vegan for 8 weeks before we started our juicing reboot. Started today. Fingers crossed.

    To the purist, caffeine is evil on a reboot. I'm not a purist, and in my book, a small amount of caffeine won't hurt much, but too much caffeine on a reboot can cause your blood sugar to roller coaster in a bad way. The caffeine will also rev up the stomach, making the hunger harder to deal with. Your husband doesn't have to give up the coffee if he doesn't want to, but he really should cut way back or his reboot will be much more difficult.

    I actually drink diet Mt. Dew on a reboot, but I cut back the quantity, and I do just fine.

    Ultimately, giving up the caffiene is the best way to go, but that is not as easy as it sounds for some of us. Do your best to cut back.

    Hey Trewben,

    On the coffee since age 12! Wow!

    40lbs lost since June sounds like a nice sensible rate and now gearing up to tackle the coffee issue…doing great and working things through sensibly.

    Good on ya!

    I've had some bouts of sluggishness from the weening, however, I am quick to replenish the energy with the good stuff. So in my quest for wholesome foods and nutrition, I found this quite amusing I took these picture from the shelves at Walmart last night.

    Just when you thought you were safe from additives... check out the firming agent.

    6 days ago I went off the coffee, yesterday I thouht I'd have a little half and half; half caffeinated, half de-caf. I can't believe that the thing I loved the most almost made me throw up. I couldn't stand the taste; coming from an avid coffee drinker, that's a bold statement. I am excited that more and more of the good is crowding out the bad to the point that I'm not banging my head against the same brick wall anymore!

    With all the health benefits of coffee I make it a regular addition to my smoothies. Other than the caffeine I don't understand why the cut is necessary? I've always had my coffee black and I don't react to caffeine so I'm planning on staying on my 3 cups per day...cheers!
