The Challenge • Remove caffeine from your diet using the Teeccino Kick the Caffeine Habit Program in a maximum of 14 days. (See tools below) • Eat only natural sugars as they occur in fruit and vegetables where they are bound by fiber. Let’s Get Started! 1) Kick The Caffeine Habit: The goal of Teeccino’s Kick The Caffeine Habit Program is to help you gradually wean yourself off caffeine by giving your body enough time to adjust to less and less caffeine daily. This gradual withdrawal from caffeine will help you avoid unpleasant symptoms like headaches, nausea, and muscle aches that are caused by a sudden drop in caffeine intake. The program is based on blending Teeccino with your regular coffee in gradual amounts over a two-week period that can be adjusted on an individual basis. If you want to drink ready-to-go brewed coffee at a café or at the office, we recommend you carry a thermos of brewed Teeccino that you can blend with coffee in the cup. Drip Coffee Brewing: Start by blending your normal coffee 3/4 to 1/4 Teeccino Caffeine-free Herbal Coffee in the filter. Gradually reduce the percentage of your coffee over a two to three week period until you are drinking 100% Teeccino. You should be able to avoid the painful withdrawal symptoms and also gradually adjust your body to less reliance on stimulants. Use the following proportions if you make a 10-cup pot of coffee daily: DAY Regular Coffee Teeccino Day 1-3: 4 Tbsp 1 Tbsp Day 4-6: 3 Tbsp 2 Tbsp Page 2 of 7 © Teeccino Caffé, 2009
Day 7-9: 2 Tbsp 3 Tbsp Day 10: 1 1/2 Tbsp 3 1/2 Tbsp Day 11: 1 Tbsp 4 Tbsp Day 12-13: 1/2 Tbsp 4 1/2 Tbsp Day 14: 0 5 Tbsp 2) Reduce Your Sugar Intake: Sweets to Avoid: • Avoid any foods with added sugar such as muffins, cookies, cereals, sodas, juice, candy and chocolate. • Stay away from cane sugar, honey, maple syrup and both fructose and agave syrup. • Avoid all synthetic sweeteners including NutraSweet, Splenda, Sweet & Low, etc. Watch out for hidden sugar in ketchup, mayonnaise and other condiments. Sweets you can eat: • Non-caloric sweeteners such as Xylitol, Erythritol, and stevia found in natural food stores. • Eat as many apples a day as you like when you want something sweet. Other seasonal fruits may be enjoyed such as berries, tangerines, oranges, kiwis, grapes, melons, and pomegranates. • Go easy on super sweet fruits like bananas, mangos, and pineapples. 3) Healthy foods you can enjoy: • Baby carrots, low salt nuts, unsweetened yogurt, nut & peanut butters on slices of apples, low fat cheese, salads, whole grains, and proteins like tofu, fish and chicken. • Natural foods with a low glycemic count. Check out low glycemic foods with a score UNDER 50 at: http://www.lowglycemicdiet.com/gifoodlist.html Beverages: • Instead of sodas, drink mineral water with a squirt of sliced lime or lemon or a splash of your favorite unsweetened juice. • Iced Teeccino: Refrigerate brewed Teeccino in a pitcher. Add milk or non-dairy milk and pour over ice. Sweeten with stevia or Xylitol. • Drink caffeine-free herbal teas. Rooibos is an excellent alternative to black or green tea. It’s high in anti-oxidants and other health benefits. Page 3 of 7 © Teeccino Caffé, 2009
Dessert: • Drink Teeccino Mediterranean Herbal Coffees like Vanilla Nut, Hazelnut, Mocha, and Chocolate Mint for a satisfying dessert without all the calories. Add frothed milk and if desired, sweeten with stevia or Xylitol. • Make a bowl full of fruits with vibrant colors. Add plain yogurt and sprinkle with toasted almonds. Energy Slumps: • Drink Teeccino Herbal Coffees when you feel a mid-morning or afternoon energy slump. Eat an apple to stave off hunger. They are high in fiber and will fill you up. Teeccino On-The-Go: • There are several easy ways to brew Teeccino when you’re on the go. Check out the Bodum Bistro Brewer, the Swiss Gold One-Cup Brewer and Mini Minit One-Cup Filters at http://www.teeccino.com/ProductsList.aspx?ProductCategoryID=4&ProductCatego ryName=Brewing%20Tools Helpful Herbal Tonics & Supplements: Herbal tonics that help rebuild adrenal health can help you restore your natural energy more quickly. • Eleuthero (Eleutherococcus senticosus) and Panax Ginseng (Panax ginseng or Panax quinquefolius) traditionally combined with licorice are considered adrenal tonics. Both are classified as adaptogens, herbs that increase resistance to stress, whether the cause is physical, chemical or biological, and normalize physical systems by strengthening the immune system, the nervous system and the glandular system. Adaptogens enhance the body’s ability to recover and may be taken on a continuous basis without causing any harm. • Other adaptogens that can be of help to weakened adrenals are astragalus, schizandra berries, and ashwagandha. • You might also consider some herbs to help detoxify the liver, kidneys and bowels. Milk thistle, or the extract Silymarin from milk thistle, is a proven liver protective herb that prevents the entrance of liver toxins into the interior of liver cells. It also stimulates the regenerative ability of the liver and increases the formation of new liver cells. Since the liver’s job is to detoxify drugs and toxins like caffeine, your liver will work more efficiently once it is no longer taxed by detoxifying caffeine. Page 4 of 7 © Teeccino Caffé, 2009
• Many people use caffeine as a laxative in the morning and need help reestablishing normal bowel movement. Teeccino with its rich inulin content and soluble fiber can usually accomplish this task alone since inulin supports the bifidobacteria in the colon and soluble fiber helps form a soft stool. If more assistance is needed, a bulk fiber such as psyllium seeds will gently promote normal bowel function and can even help reduce cholesterol! • To counteract brain fogginess while quitting caffeine, try herbal extracts including gotu kola and gingko biloba to help clear that fog and restore your normal brain clarity. • Nutritional supplements that support adrenal health are the B vitamins and in particular pantothenic acid (B-5). Co-Q10, chromium, potassium and magnesium aspartate can help provide a real energy boost by increasing metabolic efficiency. Quotes about caffeine and sugar Brendan Brazier, The Thrive Diet: “If stimulation is used when it will not help you achieve something of value, it is an uncomplimentary stress. I consider coffee drinking an uncomplimentary stress. I view it as a form of credit, similar to shopping with a credit card. You get energy now that you don’t actually have, but you pay for it later – when the “bill” or fatigue hits. Simply drinking more coffee to put off the inevitable is like paying off one credit card with another: It will catch up with you sooner or later. You’ll most likely pay a high interest rate as well, needing more time to recover than if that energy had not been borrowed in the first place.” “Food cravings, usually for sugary or starchy foods, are often telltale sign that the diet lacks nutrients or is tired. Cravings and chronic hunger, if not addressed, will lead to weight gain and fatigue in the short term and, in the long term, any number of health problems.” “Nutritional stress, for the average North American, is by far the greatest source of uncomplimentary stress…Not eating enough natural, unprocessed foods rich in vitamins, minerals, enzymes, high-quality protein, fiber, essential fatty acids, antioxidants, and good bacteria (probiotics) is a major source of stress on our bodies…Not having enough nutrients in our diet is a form of nutritional stress and therefore produces a stress response.” Page 5 of 7 © Teeccino Caffé, 2009
Mariel Hemingway, Healthy Living From the Inside Out “If you use caffeine throughout the day, then time and again you’re forcing your adrenals to respond as if there’s an emergency. It’s no wonder that when this becomes a habit it puts great wear and tear on the body…Without a regular intake, you feel withdrawal symptoms, such as powerful headaches. During one notorious episode when I quit coffee cold turkey at the height of my habit, I forgot all my lines on the TV show I was filming and the crew resorted to holding cue cards saying, “please have some java!’. Coffee had such an effect on my wiring that without it, I was turned upside down.” Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin, Skinny Bitch “We all know how difficult it is to stay away from sugar. But if you don’t exorcise this demon from your diet, you will never be a skinny bitch. Take a look around your kitchen and become aware of all the places the devil is lurking. Probably in place you wouldn’t ever expect to find ‘him’. Read the ingredients of your breakfast cereals, breads, crackers, junk foods, everything. Sugar is like crack, and food manufacturers know that if they add it to their products, you’ll keep on coming back for more.” Dr. Kathleen DesMaisons, Potatoes Not Prozac “Yes, you can be addicted to sugar, to sweet foods and to white-flour products that your body responds to as sugars. This addiction is physiological and affects the same biochemical systems in your body as do drugs like morphine and heroin. You can actually get high on sugar. Eating it can make you feel euphoric immediately afterwards. If you don’t have your regular sugar “fix”, you may experience withdrawal symptoms. Yes, You can become physiologically dependent upon the effect sugars have on your body.” Dr. Ron Rosedale, The Rosedale Diet Excess sugar poses a far greater threat to your body than excess fat (which isn’t good either, but is not quite as bad as sugar – diabetes can kill you faster!). When sugar combines with the proteins in your body (called glycation), it triggers chemical reactions that can be very damaging to healthy cells and can cause aging, disease, and death. Sugar burning also promotes the formation of potentially high amounts of toxic chemicals called free radicals, unstable oxygen molecules that can damage cells and ultimately lead to numerous diseases. My hunch is, the body probably burns off sugar first as a defense mechanism to protect you from the potentially lethal effects of sugar. Thus, if we bombard our bodies with sugar-producing foods, it becomes harder for our bodies to switch to fat-burning mode.” Page 6 of 7 © Teeccino Caffé, 2009
