Somehow I didn't like tea. It was just accepted that everyone drinks it, so I drank. Then I decided to just drink water. And so I drink it for more than ten years. I drink tea only when they are treated at a party. Many are surprised that I only drink water. As for me, the body needs water, and I quench my thirst with it faster, I don't like tea and coffee. I have reflux, coffee is generally contraindicated for me. When I drank tea, my health was better, but this is probably due to childhood, and sores come over the years.
I think that giving up coffee will certainly cause withdrawal and break down at first. But giving up tea will not lead to anything, that is, you most likely will not feel any difference. But for the sake of interest, I will try not to drink tea for a month and write about the results, unless, of course, I forget.
Nothing much will change. I haven't been drinking for a long time, and the only change is that my teeth have lightened a couple of tones. If you are overweight, you may throw it off, since chocolates / sweets are always used with tea and coffee.
For about 10 years now I have been drinking water instead of these drinks. In general, I feel better without any oppressors and pathogens of the central nervous system. If you suddenly have to drink coffee in the morning, then it is difficult to fall asleep at night (although according to the idea, caffeine works for 6 hours) Waking up with the help of such drinks as self-abuse. Naturally, the nerves are shaking strongly, I became calmer by abandoning them. To each his own, I like the rose hips more. Since substances in tea-coffee consume the body's internal reserves, it is better to minimize them.
Nothing really will happen, it all depends on the amount of water you drink. If you drink one coffee and tea, and then switch to water, naturally, huge changes will be noticeable, but if you drink 2-3 cups of coffee daily and don't forget about water, there will be no harm. Every day I have to drink a huge amount of coffee - up to 5-10 espresso, at home in the morning I drink coffee in a Turk, sometimes in the middle of the day I allow myself a latte, in the evening - a geyser. Before I started working with coffee, I did not drink it at all, and now I can say that my skin and the state of the digestive tract have not worsened even once, as well as my mood / general condition. I drink a lot (!) Of water, I definitely drink each serving of coffee either immediately, if it's espresso, or afterwards, maintaining balance, which is what I advise you.
Everything is a little different for me than for the people above.
1) You will start to turn back from too sweet drinks and pastries.
2) Unsweetened tea will no longer seem disgusting.
3) I have less allergies, my body condition has improved as a whole.
You will like it, try it.
I didn't want tea, and I don't want to. Because laziness and because the water tastes better. Water is the drink of the gods. For some reason, caffeine does not work on me at all, only my heart beats faster, so I don't drink coffee. I really don't want to go back to the old way of life.
I logged in purely to show off my school knowledge of chemistry and biology, just to show that they were not useless to me.
But I did not learn Russian, so I grew up.
And also I can not vouch for the accuracy of the information, because memory is not a reliable thing.
Everything I have said is just guesses and memory.
A person consists of 70-80% of water, i.e. if you drink it more often, you will force the body to renew itself, if you are already healthy, the difference is zero, if not, then it will help improve the general condition. What is the difference between water and tea? water is a pure solvent that takes part in the chemical reactions of the body, while tea is essentially a solution and when you consume it, your body first needs to extract water and then use it, because All the water from the solution, our body cannot, then we need to drink more tea for a healthy way, so to speak, but there is, then the body will spend time and energy on cleaning it, so it is better not to abuse tea. Sobsno because water is a solvent, it will help to remove all the bad from the body by dissolving it and leaving the urine.
It seems that that's all.
Well, different teas have their own different types of impact on the brain, some increase concentration, others relax, others calm down, and frequent changes in teas and constant brain strain may not have a very good effect on this, when switching to water, sleep may improve, but this is just my guess.
Here and so.
If you say something stupid in some place, then I ask for corrections in the answers.
I drank only water for four months. I didn’t want to drink tea (and I didn’t drink coffee anyway, not a fan), I didn’t shake from its smell and everything that people write. Although before my experiment I constantly drank tea (9-10 cups per day), I could never swallow pure water at all.
My skin became healthier, the problem with dryness and flaking went away, as- then some health problems went away. The mood was better. In general, nothing has definitely become worse, maybe there were some other changes, but I did not notice them then.
Drank only water (from liquids) for 30 days. I felt nothing. The weight did not go away, I did not think better, acne did not decrease. The only plus is saving on tea and coffee
About 4 years ago, I, too, for the n-th amount of time drank only water (I did not specifically decide to be treated, etc., but just wanted to), giving up tea, juice and soda. I ate oatmeal for breakfast and drank only water, otherwise I did not change the diet. Well, I started walking more. As a result, she only lost a lot of weight. I did not notice any obvious improvements in my health. 🤔
There will be happiness for the body, brain and cells. The caffeine found in coffee and tea increases the heart rate and also blocks the adenosine receptors, thereby activating the central nervous system. In addition, caffeine, binding to glycogen, causes the breakdown of the latter, and so the level of glucose in the blood rises, and we feel cheerful. Everything is good, but the body is stressed with such fluctuations in heart rate and blood sugar levels. Again, caffeine removes fluid, and we already lose enough of it in the process of life. So by drinking enough water and reducing your intake of coffee and tea (not necessarily excluded), you replenish the volume of fluid, which is why every cell is happily and actively doing its job.
It will be sad
I have not been drinking tea for a long time, it turned out that I could not escape to go to the store and buy another tea, did what was instead - hot water + a slice of lemon (knead it with a spoon in a mug) +1 cm finely chopped root ginger (knead with a spoon) + a spoonful of honey , a couple of days of such a replacement I realized that tea is no longer interesting to me. Add a couple of mint leaves for variety.
3 eyes will appear, the ability to read thoughts, divine and see the future
In general, if you drink tea and coffee in moderation, everything will be fine for you, well, unless you become a superman; (
This is all great, but every second writes "I don't drink for a year, I haven't noticed any changes" Hmm, guys, what's the point?) Okay, it's clear with coffee, you want to drink more from it, but you get drunk with tea at 2 times faster than water and much more pleasant. Why deny yourself something that is neutral for health?
What a strange question, I always live like this and nothing terrible happens to me. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ ___
I have not had tea or coffee for four years. Unless I'll drink tea once a month, more often I can't - headaches begin. On the positive side, which became noticeable about two to three weeks after the refusal, the dream deepened. I went to bed and immediately fell asleep, before that all my life I had been tossing and turning for some time, sometimes for half an hour or an hour. The awakening became abrupt. The frequency of dreams did not change, nor did their nature. The two-three-week migraines, which I did not expect at all, are gone, a nice addition. Here they wrote about the plaque in the language - also gone. At first it stopped being yellowish, then it disappeared almost completely.
Well, I saved a lot of money, I didn't drink bad tea, but it's expensive.
I have been living like this for about 4 years (I practically don't drink any drinks, except water). That is: I drink a couple of glasses in the morning, I take a bottle of about a liter to study, I drink a glass in the evening and a couple of sips at night, I take water in a cafe, I refuse tea at a visit and drink water with dessert, etc. The most interesting thing is that (most likely, due to my age) I did not need to deliberately exclude tea / coffee from the diet, I switched to this regime because I simply do not like other drinks, I like water. Well, and a little more due to the fact that there is a lot of talk about its benefits around, and at some point I wanted to become healthier, later I got involved.
I would not say that my health is like- it changed dramatically when I started drinking 1.5-2 liters of water a day. It just became a habit and became routine for me. Although, I do not deny that I can see a great contrast if I suddenly change my diet.
In short, you always need to choose a diet, listening to your body. If this water does not come to you, it is possible that you do not need to change anything (if you are guided only by the desire to improve yourself)
Several months ago, in fact, I read this question and decided to try drinking only water. I've been doing this for three or four months already. The results are as follows: there was no withdrawal syndrome, the smells of coffee and tea did not begin to irritate, I did not notice any serious improvements in the body. Something like this, I will experiment further.
Probably more than half a year I do not drink coffee and tea at work before that sinned with caffeine from 7 to 15 cups of strong coffee. I stopped drinking coffee when I had a very bad headache and stopped falling asleep normally. When I started drinking pure water, everything worked out even I stopped smoking, the headaches stopped and at the end I started getting enough sleep. Recently, the delivery of water to the office stopped for 3 days, and somehow it became figurative for me, and for the cold weather the skin began to crack and vigor in the morning was gone. P.s .: There was no withdrawal syndrome. Only one negative started going to the toilet very often (I drink more than 5 liters of water a day)
I once set up such an experiment too. The first week was very difficult, because I don't like to drink water just like that and only take it when I am thirsty. And I can't live without tea. After a week of torment, I realized that I did not feel any discomfort from the lack of tea and other drinks. And most importantly, I lost weight! Apparently, the water balance has finally been restored in my body and the body has ceased to retain water. In general, only pluses!
As a person who drank only water all his life, I will say that nothing. Yes, maybe I'm strange that I prefer water with a cake and get satisfaction (and in my childhood I drank borscht with water in general;) but the conclusion is that you drink tea, that there is no difference, this is just a habit, although it is still better give preference to water ...)
I can't say that I only drink water: I also drink teas, coffee and juices, but not enough. In this topic, I think the amount of water consumed per day is more important, and it is worth noting that if you drink coffee and tea, then you need more water consumption per day than without them, since coffee and tea remove water from the body, and the body becomes sad ... It is difficult to overestimate the benefits of water itself: it participates in absolutely all metabolic processes of the body, if we speak in general. About the harm to the body, with insufficient consumption of it, you can talk for hours ... Basis: problems with the kidneys, stomach, skin, and sometimes weight. You can conduct a simple test to determine whether I drink enough water: if the urine is dark in color, then the fact that you drink little is obvious. I saw many positive changes in my body: the edema of the body, the swelling of the face decreased, the general condition and mood improved.
After a year of drinking (and eating) tea every day, I decided to quit (forgetting about coffee too!). Six months have passed, I only drink water. The changes are insignificant: the teeth have lightened slightly, I have become a little less nervous and, as a result, have taken sedative pills. In general, nothing spectacular. When canceled, the water will seem absolutely tasteless and generally "not drinking", then, especially if the water is of high quality, adapt. I allow myself a cup of chach / coffee once a month, but no more - I don't want to go back.
For 3 years now I have not been drinking anything but water. At first I really wanted tea, the water was not terribly tasty. I never drank coffee. But this did not last more than two weeks, after a couple of months there were no problems.
There were no changes in the body. Cardinally, so that I would notice, nothing has changed. But most likely, it will be useful in the future.
I do not drink tea and coffee at all for several years. sobsna, nothing will happen. I have nothing to compare my health with, I drank very little tea and coffee before. but I'm not complaining, so drink some water.
I also conducted such an experiment, but did not refuse tea at all (once a week, at a party) and there was no withdrawal syndrome, I began to drink coffee very rarely (maybe once a month or less), about a month passed, really better I began to fall asleep, before I could not sleep for an hour, but now it is 10-15 minutes, there is still much less plaque on the tongue (due to which there is an unpleasant smell from the mouth). It also depends on the tea you prefer, it is better to buy an expensive one with tea than a cheap one with dust and sticks.
I speak as a person who has gone through all sorts of stomach ailments, therefore periodically for a long time giving up anything, including tea and coffee. Nothing will happen, even a year, at least three. If you try really hard, you can start to notice changes in skin and sleep as a placebo, but I compared it as an experiment - the difference is noticeable exclusively emotionally.
I stop drinking tea on expeditions. Absolutely. It's not tasty. I drink water, since there is a lot of it and it is purest. But, once, after a long route, even the water did not flow. Saved a natural source of mineral water in the taiga. Only after drinking a liter of mineral water did it feel better and the thirst disappeared. Natural gas water. I drink coffee sometimes, more often cocoa. Sweet cocoa. I need glucose. The loads are big.
And in the city tea is everywhere. Very sweet and strong. I like coffee in coffee shops and burgers. Not funny.
I don't drink coffee at all for 10 years. And for about the same time I do not drink tea on my own initiative. If offered, I help myself, but, as a rule, I drink water on my own. It's quite obvious to me that going to the teapot with a mug every 30-40 minutes is a habit. You want to drink less often (if you are sitting in a cool office). I drink when I am thirsty, and do not want to feel any taste.
I feel great. The teeth are white, the mug is clean, the weight is normal, the eruption is excellent, the vigor is light.
Everyone here writes about withdrawal syndrome, but the question did not imply a sharp refusal about tea and coffee (or am I wrong?). And they also write about a noticeable improvement in health, appearance and something else.
I practically do not drink tea for a long time - only when, for example, I eat something fatty and feel stomach discomfort (hot drink is solves), but very warm water may suit me. I drink coffee only if I cut it off at work, but I can do well without it.
A person who finds it difficult not to drink tea or coffee is most likely simply difficult to refuse the procedure itself (if this in his case did not develop into addiction like cigarettes). That is, for example, you opened your eyes. Well, or almost opened, it's hard to get up. You trudge into the kitchen, pour yourself some coffee, drink, and while you are drinking, you already have time to wake up, and cheerfully run on. There is a clear association and dependence. But for me it is a shower :) In the shower you can warm up, wake up and cheerfully run on. Or you are accustomed to sit and drink tea after dinner. The point will not be in tea, but in the habit of sitting and drinking tea.
So, I was distracted. I drink enough water every day. And I can tell you - there is no difference with what happened before! The only thing I really like is to drink a glass of water right after waking up. The body wakes up and stirs up faster. The rest is the same.
TOTAL: Acne has not decreased, fat has not gone away, health has not increased))))
I do not drink tea, coffee, juices and other drinks for over a year. Only water. I noticed an improvement in the condition of the skin, the feeling of dryness and tightness went away, I began to sleep better, my mood swings decreased. When I just started drinking water, I had a withdrawal syndrome - I really wanted coffee, I couldn't wake up in the morning without it, I fell asleep on the go, but after a couple of weeks everything went away. At first I replaced tea and coffee with water with lemon and honey, now I just drink warm water. Now she is very sensitive to odors - tea sometimes smells delicious, but mostly unpleasant, coffee too. Juice, hot chocolate and other drinks have to be diluted with water, because they are very sweet and rich.
Drinking water was not difficult, you just need to start!
I did not completely refuse other drinks, including strong drinks, but somehow it so happened that I drank a lot of water for three months. A couple of glasses with each meal, and one and a half to two liters just during the day. I can say that the shattered body fell into place, the tachycardia disappeared, a better taste for life appeared, the mood improved. I don’t know how much this is connected with such a "peculiar diet", but it seems to me that it is strong. Also, at some point, I just stopped drinking tea (I didn't feel like it) - too, my health improved, the plaque on my tongue and unpleasant taste in my mouth in the morning disappeared.
I did not notice any difference other than a deep feeling of dissatisfaction with the combination of "cake with water". And it takes a little more water, more often you have to go for the next mug. But this is the only thing that confused me for 3 months.
I probably haven't been drinking tea or coffee for 5 years now. During all this time I probably drank 3-4 cups of tea with friends. I do not particularly notice the difference in health. True, I almost never drank coffee before, and tea - a couple of cups a day. I drink juices, fruit drinks, dairy products. In general, if before giving up tea and coffee there were no health problems, some kind of painful addiction to them or disturbed sleep patterns, then nothing much will change afterwards.
I conducted an experiment on myself and for a month (February 2015) I drank only water and nothing else. Dmitry Nikolaev is right, the withdrawal syndrome is really present. The smell of tea made me sick and I really wanted to take at least a sip. This reaction made it clear that in fact all our eating habits are really just habits and have a completely physiological and chemical reason.
As for the positive results, the condition of the body, in particular the skin, has improved significantly (which could observe, because organs are not strongly felt and there were no problems with them before the experiment). Breathing improved, sleep better and easier to wake up. The mood became more stable and positive, the efficiency increased.
In general, as a result, I deeply accepted the wisdom of yogis that everything except water is food, and only water is drink.
Drink more water and be healthy!
If you are addicted to caffeine, you will have withdrawal for a while, and then everything will be normal. Water is a natural drink for humans, and tea and coffee do not contain any substances necessary for the body.
