Congratulations. Yes!: I am happy to hear you are going off sodas- one of the best things you can do for your health! The healthiest source of caffeine is green tea- you can drink it liberally- it is loaded with beneficial antioxidants. Coffee is ok too- choose organic! See http://www. Umm.

also consider kombucha as a healthy alternative to sodas- I like trilogy flavor by synergy. ...Read more

Is it ok to stop drinking sodas and start caffeine pills?

Is it ok to stop drinking sodas and start caffeine pills?

Probably Not.: Caffeine from natural sources- coffee, teas, dark chocolate- is probably good for health in general. Caffeine, however, is not designed to treat fatigue or sleepiness or any other condition.

Not a fan of soda (diet or regular) or caffeine pills. They won't address the cause.

My general approach would be, after a good medical eval from pcp, to test neurotransmitters and adrenal function. ...Read more

Is drinking a 106 ounces of water a day bad for you because that's what I drink nothing else no soda and especially no caffeine I liove water?

Is drinking a 106 ounces of water a day bad for you because that's what I drink nothing else no soda and especially no caffeine I liove water?

Not too much but...: There is no consensus on how much water to drink but most agree it's wise to drink 1/2 to 2/3 ounce per pound of weight a day, so a 160 lb person should drink 80-107 oz./day. Drinking soda is very unhealthy. Water is the best thing to drink. However, if your city's water is fluoridated I advise drinking fluoride-free water. See http://bit. Ly/1npjceu

Is it normal to feel dizzy a few days later after stopping caffeine and diet soda?

Very Possible: Abruptly stopping caffeine can definitely have withdrawal side effects. The most common is a headache and a lot of people who drink coffee at work get "weekend headaches" when they don't drink as much caffeine at home. To some degree it depends on what you mean by dizzy. Lightheaded type dizziness would be expected as would a headache. A sensation of true spinning is different and not expected. ...Read more

Do I need to do anything for the caffeine withdrawals if I'm trying to stop drinking soda?

Do I need to do anything for the caffeine withdrawals if I'm trying to stop drinking soda?

Caffeine withdrawl: Being a former caffeine addict myself, I understand the fear. Withdrawl symptoms can range from minor irritability, to severe headaches. While unpleasant, it is not recommended to medicate for caffeine withdrawl. It is usually a very short phenomenon and I have never seen someone need to be hospialized because of it. I would recommend having tylenol (acetaminophen) and Motrin available. Maybe even sugarfree gum. ...Read more

15 min: The effects of the caffeine in soda should take effect within 15 minutes. Caffeine can raise blood pressure very slightly, but this should not be a problem unless you already have extremely high and uncontrolled blood pressure, or you are drinking gallons of soda a day, which wouldn't be good for many reasons. Hope this helps! ...Read more

I drink 2 to 4 liters of (caffeine-free) diet soda each day as my primary/sole source of liquid in take. Is this a dangerous or unhealthy choice?

See previous answer: It could be a healthy choice depending on what your other choices might be. Drinking beer? Much better. Drinking water? Not so much. Drinking sugar sweetened soda? Way too many calories in 2 liters of soda. I would consider this amount of soda, juice, coffee or milk excessive. Moderation in all things. ...Read more
