This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Feb 23, Pamela Merritt rated it it was amazing. This book will “open your eyes” about what we’ve been doing to ourselves with that morning indulgence! This well-researched and well-reasoned book methodically goes through all the reasons caffeine is far from harmless.
And he also debunks the myth of moderation. How can we moderate our intake when corporations put caffeine in all kinds of things, like chocolate, and don’t even put how much it is on the label? The author made such a persuasive case for caffeine’s addictive and detrimental qualiti This book will “open your eyes” about what we’ve been doing to ourselves with that morning indulgence!
The author made such a persuasive case for caffeine’s addictive and detrimental qualities I have completed a two week tapering off process, as recommended in his “Getting off the Bean” program. Though I only had one big mug in the morning, and don’t drink soda at all.
I’ve had fatigue issues and already hope I’m right in feeling a difference already, though he warns it can take weeks to divest all the caffeine aftereffects from our systems.
The most frightening part, to me, was the ability of coffee to be a “stress multiplier. In fact, research indicates that the stress hormones released from caffeine undermine our ability to think, sleep, and cope. Very convincing and enlightening book. Oct 19, Libbeth rated it it was amazing Shelves: My many teas a day habit was contributing to my mood swings. I quit tea and coffee cold turkey in and boy did I have a headache for a few days.
It is recommended that you reduce your intake gradually but I am a bit of an all or nothing girl so just got it over with. I drank various herbal teas for a while when I quit but now I pretty much just drink rooibus redbush a naturally caffeine free tea that, to me, tastes sweet without milk or sugar.

Reasons why you should give up coffee
Pyramid scammer and a chernisek. He has a nonaccredited degree and has been subject to regulatory enforcement. Half of what he says isn’t even real evidence.
Lots of faulty science and pulling together studies to show that every malady known to man is due to caffeine when chfrniske connections are tenuous at best. I don’t doubt caffeine, especially in excess, can stpehen downsides but don’t listen to this guy. He’s full of it. Jul 20, Staci rated it really liked it. I learned a lot and will be moving forward without caffeine!
Oct 19, Loree rated it liked it Recommends it for: This book is shelved under the section of “food for thought” in my own library.
I used to drink a pot or two of coffee daily. I stopped drinking coffee for a while after reading this one.
In blued experiment I was able to realize how strong an influence it has on me. I am mindful about how and when I drink coffee. I warn you, you may feel like kicking the caffeine habit for awhile after reading this one. Jan 16, Karli rated it it was amazing. I quit caffeine before even finishing the introduction of this book.
In the midst of new literature about why caffeine is allegedly good for you, I still think Cherniske provides more compelling evidence for why it caffeone not. Oct 08, Brent McGregor rated it it cafteine amazing.
Overwhelming evidence by way of medical studies and market research all wrapped up in one rather large volume. Whether you find your caffeine fix in coffee, soda, power drinks, or pills, the results are still the same. This has been the go-to book for most health related topics for over fifteen years and is still relevant today. Without going into adrenal fatigue, depression, obesity, brain problems, and everything else imaginable, caffeine is as much a poison as is sugar — and just as desirabl Overwhelming evidence by way of medical studies and market research all wrapped up in one rather large volume.
Without going into adrenal strphen, depression, obesity, brain problems, and everything else imaginable, caffeine is as much a poison as is sugar — and just as desirable. You don’t need to read it stephej start to finish like a novel. I’ve been picking through it for months and finally drove through the whole thing to get the full sense of this work.
Not to fear, there is an end section on how to beat this addiction with real world substitutes to redirect that pesky muscle memory ritual. Oct 03, Trudy rated it it was amazing. I read this book and it was amazing to me how much I didn’t know about what caffeine does to our bodies.
After reading this, I was totally off caffeine for 6 months. But it is a slippery slope chermiske I have slipped to the bottom. Maybe I should reread this, or review my notes from reading it to regain my motivation! May 25, Annemargaret Olsson rated it it was amazing Shelves: This is my second time reading this book. It really is a wake-up call when you realize how much caffeine affects your body. Now, getting off the caffeine is another story – though the author does layout a plan to bleus the reader reach this goal as well as providing alternatives to coffee and decaf coffee.
The book is very well written – an easy page turner. I highly recommend this book. Dec 03, Bljes West rated it liked it. It’s pretty interesting for a technical book on nutrition. The evidence is quite compelling that caffeine and coffee are not good for you and I was convinced to stop drinking coffee, even decaf. I feel much better, sleep better, and have more energy since quitting drinking coffee after having drunk it for about 15 years. Jan 17, Fishface rated it it was amazing Shelves: A very good read that explains a great deal about what caffeine is doing to your body; how you may be ingesting much more of the stuff than you realized; and why it is making you tired, depressed and hurting all over, rather than the opposite.
Explains how to get off the stuff as easily as possible. Jan 04, Adam Crafter rated it it was ok Shelves: You may or may not wish to quit caffeine… If you do there’s enough facts and fear in this book to help you quit. If you don’t want to quit caffeine there are also books out there that recommend caffeine and all of its health benefits… Read both before you decide!
Good info, lot of typos I enjoyed the book and got a lot out of it. I knocked 2 stars for typos on almost every page, with some completely changing the meaning of a sentence.
