Seems like many of us in the Diabetes OC have this particular monkey on our backs. It's been tough, but I'm down to two 12 ounce cans of regular Diet Coke per day. (I can't make it in the mornings yet without my fix.) That's about 90 milligrams total of caffeine per day, or less than a cup of tea. A few weeks ago I was downing quadruple that number (!) in soda and coffee.
Alongside the benefits of feeling less dehydrated and jittery, I'm hoping detox will help my blood pressure levels a little. My "high" number has ticked up a few notches in the last year and I'd like to reverse that trend.
Because, who wants to end up like this?!
