How + Why to (Maybe) Give Up Coffee

One of the first things that clients and detoxers ask me is:

Do I have to give up coffee?

Followed closely by: do I have to give up drinking?

The answer to both is simple: the only way you can know how certain foods (or beverages) are affecting your body is to give them up for awhile and then see how you feel.

Throughout this process, it’s important to examine how you feel a few days after the initial detox symptoms subside (you’re likely to experience some headaches or fatigue if you’re deep into a caffeine habit).
