So it continues!!
I am feeling much better in myself, but still having the odd headache - so I definitely think that it is caffeine withdrawal. I have been researching this and discovered that you should not be affected by headaches unless you are a heavy user of caffeine. I would not have classed myself as a heavy user but upon further reading a heavy user is someone who has about 5 cups a day! Therefore that's me!! If you drink 5 or more cups of tea or coffee a day (or even energy drinks) the recommendation is to not just stop drinking it cold turkey, but to reduce gradually. Too late for me, but definitely something to consider.
Any headaches I have had in the past I have put down to dehydration - but that is not the case now. I hope to report next time that the headaches have gone altogether. I can't deny that I have been tempted to have just one cup! But I have refrained.
Where's that loo???!!!
My colleagues, and family, will confirm that I am constantly in need of the toilet at the moment - it does appear to be easing off a little though! Due to this obvious side effect, I would recommend that you have access to a toilet at all times!!!!
BEWARE: it can look like you have some serious problem when you are dashing in and out of the toilet!! I suggest being as open as possible about your experiment to prevent tongues wagging !!
I am a busy mum of two teenage boys, and between them and work I am forever running around. I have always been interested in fitness, and I make sure that exercise features regularly in my life. However many of my friends are not into fitness like me, yet want to be healthy. I want to help people make healthy lifestyle choices which will impact on their fitness, without necessarily feeling the need to throw themselves full force into exercise.
