Caffeine Free

We live in a fast-paced, modern world, and everything is go-go-go. Unfortunately, that means many people rely on caffeine to get through the day. And while there’s nothing wrong with caffeine, too much can induce an unpleasant, jittery feeling, and you may start relying on it for focus and energy. 


A caffeine-free diet helps you break free and look after your health without needing a stimulant.


Benefits of a caffeine free diet


Living a caffeine free life may feel impossible, but it has extraordinary health benefits:


Minimises symptoms of anxiety - The physical symptoms of anxiety occur because you have too much of the stress hormone cortisol circulating in your body. This increases your heart rate, making you feel panicky and on edge.

Caffeine rapidly stimulates your body, which includes your heart. Therefore, it may exacerbate physical symptoms caused by anxiety and even induce panic attacks. Cutting out caffeine keeps your heart rate regular, lowering physical feelings of anxiety.


Decreases stress levels - A non-caffeinated diet keeps stress hormones lower than caffeinated options. So, choosing something like chamomile tea over coffee can balance your nervous system and decrease stress.

Improves sleep quality - Caffeine, especially coffee affects your body long after consumption. It stimulates your body and brain, suppressing the sleep hormone melatonin and preventing you from falling asleep. Therefore, non-caffiented options can greatly contribute to falling asleep faster.

Lowers risk of dehydration - Caffeine flushes everything from your system which can cause dehydration. However, non-caffiented drinks hydrate without instantly removing water, vitamins and minerals, improving mood and stamina.

Aids nutrient absorption - Caffeine contains compounds that may inhibit you from extracting vitamins and minerals. So, skipping the caffeine can help you absorb nutrients more efficiently.

Stops you from relying on caffeine for energy - In a busy world, it’s easy to rely on caffeine for an energy high. But that can mask the root cause of low energy levels, such as a lack of sleep or a high-stress job. Cutting the caffeine means you no longer use it as an energy crutch and can instead tackle fatigue healthily.

 

FAQs


Below are some frequently asked questions for following a caffeine free diet.


Is a caffeine free diet good for you?


There are plenty of benefits to cutting out the caffeine. It prevents a caffeine addiction, which can cause headaches and irritability. It also lowers the risk of dehydration and helps your body absorb nutrients more effectively. 


How do I eliminate caffeine from my diet?


Caffeine is addictive, and the more you drink, the more addicted your body becomes. You can go cold turkey but you may prefer to cut down gradually. Make your coffee weaker, drink less caffeinated fizzy drinks (like Coca-Cola) and reduce the overall amount of caffeine you're consuming. Ensure you stay hydrated to reduce side effects and cravings.


Can you lose weight by not drinking caffeine?


Cutting caffeine doesn’t directly make you lose weight, but many people add milk and sugar to coffees, which contribute to weight gain. Caffeinated sodas also contain a lot of sugar and additives, so eliminating them from your diet will help you maintain a healthy weight.
