I'm also way too dependent on coffee. I've been an addict for the last few years, and I get awful headaches if I don't have my morning coffee. I've tried cutting out coffee before-- last spring, I tried detoxing off of it, but ultimately failed. During my few months of Primal vegetarianism, I had a lot of digestive issues (maybe from the soy?) and attempted cutting out coffee then too... but also ultimately failed. No more of that. I don't want to live my life dependent on it.
I also don't usually have dairy, but if there's high-quality cheese around (oh man, brie!), I'll go crazy. Again, not enough self-control. That can't continue.
Tomorrow thus begins the 30 Day Paleo Challenge (as outlined by Whole30... but without any nuts or coffee). I need to regain my control, break my coffee addiction, and make my jeans fit perfectly again. No coffee, no dark chocolate, no dairy, no nuts. Wish me luck.
