☕ 30 Day No Caffeine Challenge Summary – Including Health Data ☕ 2022

This is the summary for April's 1 month difficulty, which for me, is giving up caffeine. In this video, I'll not only share my anecdotal experiences with going caffeine-free, however I'll also share some data around my biometrics

Over the course of the month, I'll track my biometric information (resting heart rate, high blood pressure, sleep rating) in addition to anecdotal observations of my productivity and mood. At the end of thirty days, I'll decide if there was any benefit to going caffeine-free.

Excellent article from Johns Hopkins on coffee:

Tazo Zen green tea:

The Withings items I utilize to determine myself:
Scale:
Blood pressure cuff:
Sleep mat:

I'm devoted 2022 to putting myself in the very best shape I have actually ever been in. To that end, I'll be doing a number of one month difficulties. After 1 month, I will examine if the benefits call for making these into life-long changes.

Over the next 12 months, I will be tackling my physical health, emotional/spiritual wellbeing, and my creativity/mental capability, one month at a time.

  1. Wow – a 40-point difference between the Keto Mojo and the Freestyle Libre??? That’s incredible. Anyway, call it failure if you need to but it seems to me that you just learned how your body works best (with or without caffeine) – that doesn’t sound like a failure to me. It’s like that old story about how Edison didn’t fail with his 1000 experiments to create a lightbulb – he just discovered 1000 ways how not to make a lightbulb. Stay true to yourself, Steve.

    1. I’m waiting for a reply from Levels Health on if/when they are going to move on to a different CGM as part of their subscription. The Freestyle Libre, in my experience, just has too high of a defect rate (probably 1 out of every 3 or 4).

  2. I wouldn’t say it was a failure. It was a success.. You found out what works best for your body… 👏 👏 👏

  3. For April (and past), wife decided we need to plank before going to sleep. And I have completed roughly 3.5 days of a 5.5 day fast.

    1. I’ll be doing some extended fasts this summer. I’ll let folks know in advance, in case they want to join in.

  4. Thanks for sharing your results. Any guesses as to why it took you longer to fall asleep when you were not consuming caffeine?

    1. I have no idea why, but there was no denying the correlation. As soon as I started consuming caffeine again, I was falling asleep promptly.

  5. Yeah, I knew myself better than to try the no caffeine challenge. I’m a late bloomer when it comes to drinking coffee—didn’t care for it until my 30’s. But it’s something I really enjoy and I’d hate to stress myself out trying to cut out something that does me more good than harm (if any).

  6. Hey Steve! Thanks for another great video. Did you “fail” at your challenge? Factually yes. But you failed at you not being your best self! You quitting was a huge win in my book! I am curious about you falling asleep slower off caffeine. Stimulants do work the brain harder so maybe that allowed you to rest sooner? I know I fall sleep sooner if my brain is spent. In any case, I am glad you are back to the place you want to be. I hope all is well with the entire SK clan. Be well my friend 🙏

  7. Thanks for this update. Your data driven approach allows you to discern quickly what is beneficial to your health and well-being. Love your show!

  8. Learning is never failure. I never drink coffee , don’t like the taste, but I have one or two 16 oz chai teas almost everyday. Feels like a luxury to me.

  9. This whole caffeine challenge has been fascinating. Thank you for being the guinea pig! lol Also, it wasn’t a failure, it was a learning experience. Lots of good data and experience for future reference. I was really intrigued by this challenge when you said you would be doing this and this is the first “set” of videos I’ve decided to comment on, but I’ve been a fan/follower for like over a year now. But I was curious about the caffeine stuff simply because of my ADHD. It’s funny, before I went keto/carnivore, my doctor was fully aware of my ADHD and not wanting to take meds for it and said to drink 2 Cokes in the morning to “get myself going”, lol. Of course, I don’t drink soda anymore, but I have tea and coffee. I also really enjoy green tea myself. If you ever want to try something new, my favorite green is Citron Green Tea by Adagio Teas. It’s really good, it’s got dried citrus pieces in it. My husband said it tastes like a cup of Fruit Loops, lol. As for myself in April, I took up intermittent fasting again with the 18/6 route, sometimes 20/4 depending on work load and I have felt much better from it so I’m gonna stick with it again. Also, fascinating side accident, my resting heart rate has lowered by almost 10 since I started it up again. As you can see, I love data too! Hope you have a wonderful day, Steve! Can’t wait to see your challenge for May! (sorry for the book!) ❤

  10. Personally, coffee has really wrecked my keto routine this past year. It wasn’t till the past few years that I become a regular coffee drinker, now I’m hooked and having trouble scaling back. I find the urge to have my cold brew early in the morning and with the cream it ends my fast a lot earlier than I want. Since starting keto about four years ago, I had no problem breaking my fast with food till 11 or noon, and had no fatigue issues w/out regular coffee so I know I can do w/out it. I don’t like that it has a hold over me the same way sugar/carbs did pre-keto.

  11. Steve, I always appreciate your statistical approach. Measures help validate (or negate) the mission. And I don’t see it as a failure, but as the experiment it was.

  12. I was an everyday coffee drinker as a teacher. My students best line “don’t bother her she hasn’t had her coffee” 😂 Since I came off work in 2013 I stopped drinking coffee eventually down to none at all. I am a British tea drinker and have been since a toddler 🙂. I miss it and I think it has contributed to not being productive, focused, and lack of energy. So I’m going to try the opposite. Going back to coffee for 30 days. We’ll see how it goes 😀

  13. Absolutely no failure here ! Actually I would call that a great success ! The whole purpose of these challenges are to find what’s good for you, right ?! I must say I’m impressed. You succeeded in not letting pride or ego get the best of you for the sake of “succeeding”. You were willing to say you “failed” and move on. In French we call this “lâcher-prise”. Letting go. Not always easy to do!
    So hats off ! Very interesting and informative to watch. AND !!! It reinforces the fact that I too, will never quit coffee again ! 😉

  14. Self assessment is not a matter requiring “failure” as a measure. Clearly, if one wishes a certain outcome, lacking that criterion, it may seem like a fail. I like Thomas Edison’s take – the best way to get great ideas is to have lots of ideas. Best wishes, Steve!

  15. I find I have more issues with the “other things” in my caffeinated drinks and foods (chocolate) than the caffeine itself. I really have to use a LOT of caffeine (No-doz caffeine pills and the like) to have issues with it, and then it is more a gut and nausea issue than anything else. So when I start feeling the issues most people say is from caffeine, I cut out the artificially sweetened non-caffeinated colas/sodas and teas for unsweetened decaf tea and my unsweetened bakers chocolate, which gives me some caffeine. And in a day, I sleep like a big log… which makes my puppies happier as I am not moving about in our shared pile of mats, blankets and pillows on the floor. Someday I will get a new mattress after my roofer comes and replaces the roof.

  16. Your caffeine experiment was really interesting to me, and it proved that the effects on different people are really unpredictable! Some people can get benefits from quitting, others it just makes things worse. Thanks you sharing your experience 👍
    I was tracking exercise this month and deliberately trying to do more. We have a really long hallway on the way to the bathroom so I would find different exercises to do on the way like squats and lunges. My results: I gained a lb in the past 2 weeks but my measurements are all the same so I’m hoping that was a decrease in fat and an increase in muscle 💪
