Caffeine: Daily use vs. Performance

It’s the holiday season again and everyone likes to give themselves a present right? Well then try the gift of a caffeine-free lifestyle. A number of my coaching clients have recently challenged themselves with this journey of detoxification and are now, just two weeks later, realizing large improvements to their health and fitness.

Some of the results have included the ability to nap on command, sleep through the night consistently, manage stronger friendships/relationships and read their favourite books or detailed textbooks for greater periods of time.

Why does a caffeine-free lifestyle create such positive changes? Because like refined sugar, caffeine is a powerful drug!
