12/16/12- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Wednesday

 I am a lover of coffee! It's not the caffeine, it's really the taste.  I gave up caffeine when I was pregnant almost 6 years ago.  I figured, why go back?  But this year I started to drink 2 cups of 1/2 caffeinated, 1/2 decaf in the a.m. ( I only drink caffeine because I read it can boost metabolism when combined with exercise).  I may have a cup of decaf at 12ish, but I don't usually drink any at dinner.  

 I saw an article in the June 09' issue of Prevention magazine questioning whether decaf in restaurants is really decaffeinated.  They said that upon testing, one out of every 6 cups of restaurant decaf (from 3 different restaurant chains), contained more than 20 mg of caffeine. 

There are test strips available online ( @ www.discovertesting .com ) that can check your java for you so your not up staring at your ceiling for the most part of the night after your dinner out!
