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.
That's right 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. A must read! 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.
Jul 05, Michal Wigal rated it did not like it. Terrible nonsense. Pyramid scammer and a quack. 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 the connections are tenuous at best. I don't doubt caffeine, especially in excess, can have downsides but don't listen to this guy. He's full of it. Jul 20, Staci rated it really liked it. Lots of science I learned a lot and will be moving forward without caffeine!

I used to drink a pot or two of coffee daily. But scientists have also recently found that drinking caffeine contributes to smaller breast size: Telegraph newspaper reports: And now to book review itself It is a huge book and I won't be able to cover it very extensively - I will try to give you a general idea and pick out some of the more interesting points. Jump to top of article Jump to Chapter: Politics of Coffee.
Having said that, quitting wasn't that difficult. After all, I gave myself two years to do it! Here is my account on the benefits: Benefits of Quitting Caffeine.
Stephen Cherniske includes some testimonials in his 'Caffeine Blues' but mostly the book focuses on the dangers of caffeine. Although reading the book provides plenty of inspiration to quit, the extent of the huge benefits of being caffeine-free only become apparent once you experience it yourself. I highly recommend you try. Here are some tasters:. I had no idea that I was such an angry and frustrated person. Caffeine is the Trojan Horse.
It looks like a gift but instead delivers adrenal stress, low blood sugar, mood and energy swings, fatigue, depression, malnutrition, and disturbed sleep. I occasionally mention to people that I have quit caffeine and feel that the benefits are amazing. Most of the time their response is anything but enthusiastic.
Often people go a bit quiet, with a slightly depressed look on their face - or maybe a look of boredom - and mumble something like: In any case it is a non-starter of a conversation. Only very few people follow up with a question, asking me to describe the benefits. I have learned to not mention it and just say 'no thanks' if someone offers me coffee or tea. As with many other amazing health secrets that I have learned, I normally try to not mention anything about them, unless someone comes and asks me specifically.
An exception being people close to me - friends and family - whom I try to carefully drip-feed bits of information, so as not to overwhelm them or make them feel like I am criticising their choices.
There is nothing more certain to make a person lose interest in a topic than if they feel that someone is trying to 'feed' it to you.

On the other hand, addiction plays a role:. The illusion of enjoyment presents itself in the face of misinformation, denial, and addiction. So my guess is that you think you like caffeine but you don't really For many more powerful and surprising self-help techniques on how to combat anxiety and mood swings, read my article here: It's not because we lose it.
We throw it away. We fall into the trap of sedentary living, poor diet, and caffeine. When we stop moving, we lose metabolic efficiency. Stephen Cherniske's 'off the bean' -programme concentrates to a large extent on increasing our energy levels while weaning off coffee and all other forms of caffeine.
He advices weaning off coffee slowly, gradually mixing different healthy substitutes into the coffee, while at the same time focusing on reducing stress, and supporting your adrenal glands with rebuilding , to be able to handle stress better. I am writing this because when "Caffeine Blues" came out I just knew I had to read it. Several years ago I began to realise that coffee was much worse than we had been told, because I noticed that I got an arthritic pain in my wrist within ten to twenty minutes of a cappucino!
This book didn't just tell me how bad coffee was - it told me how GOOD I would feel once I was totally caffeine free for two months. Somehow, this book sold me on giving it a try. And it was right!
For example, I no longer have the drained feeling that I sometimes used to get in the mornings. This is one of the best health books I have ever read.
It is written by Stephen Cherniske who is a Clinical Nutritionist. After reading it I realized that caffeine does NOT give us energy. However, he explains that this drug is so powerful that one needs to go for three weeks to two months without any caffeine before one notices the difference. And how many of us have ever done that?
