Control this before it controls you

There’s something most of us drink every day to give us an extra “oomph.”

It can help you power through a workout, a meeting, or basically ANYTHING that comes your way.

Or … it can leave you feeling drained, unable to sleep, jittery, and even in a sad mood.

You’ve probably guessed by now … it’s caffeine! 

The good news: caffeine can be healthy and actually good for you … as long as you don’t drink too much of it and it’s organic (there are some crazy toxic chemicals in coffee). 

For most adults, that’s about 400 mg (or 4 cups of coffee) according to the FDA, although some people are more sensitive to it than others.

Personally, I start most days with a cup of organic coffee with a non-dairy unsweetened creamer before my workouts. I always drink 24 oz. of filtered water prior.

BUT … here’s the thing: caffeine is actually addictive for many. 

Have you ever missed a day and wondered how you were going to make it all the way until bedtime before you fell asleep?

Or got a crushing headache because you skipped your morning coffee? Ugh.

PLUS … did you know that studies show drinking too much coffee in the morning is directly linked to feeling tired later in the day? 

No good. 

If you find yourself RELYING on coffee, tea, or energy drinks to get through the day, it might be time to rethink your routine, so that caffeine becomes an “extra” instead of a crutch. 

A routine that includes:
●    Healthy, energy-promoting foods (high quality proteins, fruits & veggies, healthy fats, etc.)
●    Fresh air & sunshine
●    Water & workouts
