Tips to Feel Healthier

The Caffeine Effect on Body Health

The effect of caffeine in the diet can be dramatic: irritability, stomach upset and disturbances in sleeping patterns. Caffeine can be found in many food items, but it chiefly reigns in coffee and tea.

Too much caffeine may lend the dieter the impression that they are experiencing the jitters due to low blood sugar. 'Real Diet Needs' may be confused with "Diet Jitters' or 'Diet Wants'.

While dieting, you certainly don't want the jitters added to your pot of Diet Confusion. Therefore, diet smartly and keep caffeine consumption at 300 milligrams or less per day - or about 2 cups of coffee.
