Does caffeine make you binge eat - or at least make it worse? A strange question, but a useful one. Less a rant about the evils of coffee, and more a challenge to investigate and question your dependence on this legal drug.
I give a quick overview of the health benefits and downsides of caffeine, one of which is less-well known but hugely important in the hit your morning coffee gives you. You need to know this information!
Includes 5 important questions that will help you to challenge your own caffeine consumption.
Question 1: What does caffeine symbolise to me?
Question 2: What is my tolerance level for caffeine?
