As an A I have always felt a little smug about being able to drink coffee, but I am now wondering if it is catching up on me. I had to have a gastroscopy recently whilst having something researched and the outcome was that I had an unidentified inflammation in the stomach, not any of the usual suspects that path. could identify. So I am eliminating coffee to see if my tolerance has decreased with age, despite my blood type.I had been having up to 3 cups a day, usually of processed coffee powder.
Cheers,
Jenny

As Lola said, moderation!  Sometimes we can have a little of something that would turn on us if we had more of it.

Hello BTDers,

12 days and no coffee! It's getting to be a habit with me.

I will pass on the Java Mate...the combination of Yerba Mate and Ramon Nut that "tastes like coffee and feels like mate".  On my side, those nuts can be left on the jungle floor for I did not feel well yesterday after drinking it. Of course I will give it another try to rule out other factors but it won't be right away.

Cordially,
Margaret

Good going, Margaret!

Regarding caffeine and O's, it is the coffee that is avoid, not the caffeine.  Green tea has caffeine and it is not avoid.  The Ramon Nut is not tested by Dr. D, so we have no way of knowing what its' effect is on the body.  It could turn out to be an avoid, so if you don't feel good with it, you're wise to eliminate it.

The past couple of days, I have drunk Mate instead of green tea, just to see if I like it, and green tea stains my teeth so much I'd like a break.  I do like the tea, and I find that it seems to have less caffeine than the green tea.

The thing I was talking about with choosing either green or brown mate is the choice of raw or roasted.

Darn it, Lola!  I thought I'd found a solution!  I think all the foods that are best for us are deeply pigmented.  All those rich colors are the reason, or the result, of the healthy components in the foods.  But, I don't think the mate stains quite as badly as the green tea.

And, oh, I was mistaken about the roasted mate.  The different teas we have are a choice between smoked and unsmoked.  I have been buying the unsmoked.

Quoted from Victoria
As Lola said, moderation!  Sometimes we can have a little of something that would turn on us if we had more of it.

Well I've tried moderation before and it always ends up being a case of "just this once" which escalates. So for the moment at least while I am trying to pinpoint the cause of the inflammation I am treating coffee as the major suspect, and totally eliminating it, and after 5 days I am clear of symptoms. But it won't be proof for at least another fortnight according to my gut feeling (excuse the pun).
My son, also an A, was a coffee freak but recently found that it made his mind race alarmingly, so he has gone cold turkey. He also finds that if he uses it in moderation, such as once a day, it invariably turns around to bite him, or to use another analagy, it is like the crack in the dam wall which will always enlarge.

Update here:
Fell off of the wagon ONE day this weekend.  We were out of town for my son's soccer tournaments, and  we all overslept for his first game!  We had to leave the house in  five minutes flat... horrible for me because I like to linger for an hour and take my time getting up.. especially now that I don't have coffee regularly.  Anyway, we ended up in the car, stunned , and at a Starbucks...  I gave in.. had some coffee.. my eyes felt puffy soon afterwards..  it tasted fine, but not overwhelminly wonderful...On Sunday I went back to green tea and bennies... had bennies the whole weekend, otherwise!  Anyway, I think I'm doing well and making progress....
