So, I've been dealing with extremely SLOW weight loss ever since I quit caffeine towards the end of January. I started off the year with a full coffee habit and jumped into the 21-Day Sugar Detox. I lost 13 lbs over the course of the 3 weeks and switched to caffeinated tea on the third week and then weaned myself off caffeine completely by the time I finished.
Since then I've lost only 3.5 lbs (sticking to a Primal type eating plan). I weigh over 230 lbs, so the issue isn't that I'm close to goal or anything like that. The only thing that REALLY changed is the no caffeine. I quit because I had heard it was bad for weight loss and insulin levels (quitting is encouraged on the 21-day sugar detox).
What do you all think? Anyone actually experience weight gain or stalled weight loss from drinking coffee/caffeine? Or anyone have the opposite issue, which I appear to be having, lack of caffeine actually stalling weight loss? I really enjoy my morning coffee, so if it's not a problem, and might even be helpful, I'd like to add it back in.
