Lifestyle Tip: The Real Caffeine Effect!
[back to top]
Most people start the day feeling dreadful, and feel they need a caffeine spike to get them going - which is great, but have youever considered what cost that pep up has to your health?
Caffeine over excites your adrenal glands - then later on in the day they become exhausted, leading to a depletion of the "wakeup" hormone serotonin and therefore sugar cravings and massive energy crashes.
Just two cups of coffee will boost production of cortisol (which is produced by the adrenal glands) for 18 to 24 hours - whencoupled with our usual day to day stresses, its no wonder they're tired out!
Excess cortisol fluctuations leads to your body storing fat on the centre of your stomach, as well as restricting sleep quality sinceyou cannot fully "switch off" when your cortisol levels are high. This of course means that you struggle to get to sleep at bed time,so you have another poor nights sleep and wake up needing more caffeine to get you started the next day.
There seems to be a lot around at the moment about caffeine being good for you - just remember that these studies have beendone on athletes rather than us "normal" people - so whether you drink it before exercise, after exercise or while balancing aunicyclist on your head, caffeine will still have a huge effect on your body.

The over-riding response from the few people I've mentioned this to this week has been wrinkled up noses - but honestly, this isreally good - give it a try! It's one of Jamie Oliver's recipes from the Big Fish Fight a few weeks ago.
about 10 minutes
4 mackerel fillets. Butterflied and pin-boned1 red chilli1 spring onion1 clove garlic1/2 inch ginger, peeled1 lime - zest and juice4 teaspoons sesame oil4 tablespoons soy sauceHandful fresh coriander2 teaspoons runny honey
1. Make the dressing by finely grating the chilli, spring onion, garlic and ginger into a bowl
2. Add the lime zest, juice, sesame oil and soy sauce and mix
3. Coarsely chop the coriander and add it to the sauce along with the honey
4. Leave it for an hour or so to infuse if you have time. NB: It doesn't look like much dressing, but a little goes a long way!
5. Griddle your mackerel skin side down on a high heat. When the skin is nice and crispy, turn the mackerel over to finish off
6. Serve the fish on top of some boiled rice and drizzled with the dressing
