I quit coffee completely after years of being a 4+ a day coffee drinker.
While I'm feeling better (no more coffee headaches, fatigue) and am sticking to eating 80-10-10 to a "T", I do notice that I'm gaining weight!
My 80-10-10 eating is really more 95-5-5 (I go very low on the Overts!).
Could I be holding extra water because I no longer ingest caffeine, which can be a diuretic?
Has anyone experienced this?
Coffee's a well-known appetite suppressant, so you gaining weight post-coffee is a probability for sure. That said, new 811'ers often gain weight in the short-run. So it could be that, too.
I don't feel that coffee necessarily suppressed my appetite, however, I do feel like it was a diuretic.
I have been doing 811 for a month now. Perhaps my body is adapting to no caffeine and 811.
Thanks, Jacob. Riding it out, for sure!
