I need to break my addiction To caffeine and sugar. I've become aware of the fact that I'm hitting somewhere north of 5 cans of Dr. Pepper a day at work, and I don't need the lectures on how god-awful this is for me, I'm well aware. As it is I want to lose about 15 pounds, and I think cutting a substantial amount of this crap out of my system would be at the very least a huge start in that process. So any pointers? I've not had my usual morning injection today, and I'm already struggling. Probably doesn't help that I got 5 hours of sleep, but that's about normal for me anyway. Will black coffee help? I drink the stuff black, though avoided it today as the heat index in DC is 105 and the idea of drinking a 140 degree beverage didn't appeal to me. That said, I'm shaking from caffeine withdrawal. I've tried switching to Gatorade to have something to drink (I have an oral fixation, and having something to drink helps--used to smoke and I think it has something to do with this.), but am wondering if that's really any better for me. At any rate, suggestions on things I can snack on through the day and what sort of drinks I could pick up (I take a drink break every 2 hours or so) would be appreciated.
