Break your addiction to caffeinated beverages with this plan.
By Toni Gasparis
Coffee, soda, energy drinks, and other caffeinated beverages are a staple in many of our lives to help keep us awake throughout the day. But too much caffeine is not good for our bodies! If you've developed an addiction to caffeine use this detox plan from nutritionist Maya Feller to detox your dependency in just one week. Feller promises that this plan will help you avoid the side-effects of withdrawal, like headaches, and will improve your mental clarity, sleep quality, and energy levels.
Stop Drinking Before Bed
All caffeine consumption should stop eight hours before your bed time. That means, if you usually go to sleep around 10 p.m. you should stop drinking coffee or soda by 2 p.m. Caffeine stays in the body for 14 hours so if you have a dose in the early afternoon it should keep you alert and energized throughout the rest of the day. Consuming caffeine too close to bedtime can disturb your sleep cycle and result in poor sleep quality.
