9 Things That Happen to Your Body When You Stop Drinking Coffee
You could lose weight
If you are a fan of sugar-laden lattes, creamy Mochaccinos and the like, eliminating such beverages from your diet could help you eliminate a considerable number of calories, as well. Not to mention you would also be saving some money in the process.
Don’t think home-brewed coffee and cream is any better. According to a study conducted by Duke University, people who consumed caffeine in coffee, tea, or soft drinks on a daily basis, had 10 percent higher sugar levels and were at a higher risk of suffering from cardiovascular diseases and obesity. On the other hand, eliminating your sugar-packed caffeine beverage from your routine could save you some extra 200 calories per serving.
You could improve your sleep
At first, cutting back on coffee will make you feel tired and sluggish because your body no longer receives the stimulants it has been used to. In the long run, however, your sleeping patterns and sleep quality will improve, especially if you used to drink coffee later in the day or too close to bedtime.
According to research published in the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine, drinking coffee (and other caffeinated beverages, for that matter) six hours before bedtime can have adverse effects on an individual’s sleep cycle that very night.
