Addictions Come in Tall, Grande and Venti with a Side of Cake

Sugar addict? Check.

Coffee addict? Check.

Massive headaches all the time? Check.

I’ve been getting headaches for years. You think I’m exaggerating. I wish. In high school I had an MRI because the headaches were getting so bad. It came back inconclusive and I got some medicine. Took it once and decided never, ever to take it again. Over the years I’ve had long absences without headaches {weeks at a time} and then times where they come daily {and then lasting for days}.

Over the last few years I’ve been more in the daily category. My friend, Rachel, asked if I’d charted when the headaches occur most. I hadn’t really, but decided to try it this last month. And the results: They are random with some increased intensity if 1) I don’t drink coffee till the afternoon or 2) I am close to my cycle and eating more sweets. That lead me to wonder how my diet might be effecting my headaches.

Does sugar really harm me? Is coffee that bad? Would my headaches decrease {or even disappear?!} if I cut one or both out??

Friday I’m starting a new “diet”. I’ll be posting about the details tomorrow, so be sure to stay tuned.

Oooh, headaches–I’m so sorry! My sister has been plagued with headaches for years. Curious to see how this goes for you and hoping it’s a success!

Uh oh now I want cake and coffee haha. Seriously though, I hope you can figure out how to make those headaches stop. Can’t wait to hear what you have planned-wonder if it will include cutting out sugar and adding caffeine earlier in the day.

Oh, I can’t even imagine! I mean, I do understand the caffiene headache but nothing as severe as yours. I’ve been taking the Real Food For Rookies class and it does appear that food really does affect us. So, can’t wait to hear more about your “diet”. Hope it works!
