    I drink alot of coffee, I've always drank it black no sugar. Before the diet, I was probably drinking about 8 mugs, now on the diet, am drinking more than that a day. Am just wondering whether it stalls weight loss? I've been comparing my losses with other people and mine seem to be a wee bit on the lower side. I don't know how to get off the coffee, am addicted to it I think, I even have a cup before going to bed sometimes. If I've been away from home for more than 4 hours and can't get anywhere to buy a cuppa, I get serious head aches and as soon as I have one the headaches go away. How can I stop drinking too much and is this the reason am not having bigger losses?

    I doubt it will have much effect on your losses , as long as you are drinking some water too ?? However that much caffeine isnt good for your general health , it can give you headaches and even palpatations and isnt great for your heart either .
    If I were you I would try and cut donw , maybe start swapping one coffee a day for caffeine free , then 2 , until you have weaned yourself off it .
    caffeine is a drug and I would say you are having too much !

    and I would also say that your losses may seem lower than a lot of other people as you dont have as much to loose as some . The heavier you are the faster ytou loose to start with , then losses slow down the closer you get to a healthy weight :)
