BODY WEIGHT: 180 lb


I was only 14 years old and the daily thing was to go to the coffee shop and get something that would allow me to stay awake during my classes. For 6 months, pretty much all i would eat or drink was coffee and fruit (more coffeie then the fruit). I had insomnia for 4 months sometimes not sleeping at all for a week. I played sports and did well in school, but I was also losing A LOT of weight with out even realizing it. The caffeine i would consume would give me what I now call 'fake energy'. I would burn more energy in a short amount of time so that meant i would have to drink more coffee.

I lost 30 lbs in the first month.. 3 months into it I had lost 60 lbs. I began falling asleep and then waking up to find I had slept though a couple days.

So I quit. cold turkey. And let me tell you, those who say caffeine is not addicting are wrong. But i did it. it took me another few months to gain most of my weight back.

Now i look back and remember when i would have 1000mg of caffeine and then go for a run and do faster then anyone. But i wasn't really worth it when i would collapse afterwards...
