I used to be a coffee addict~ (from 10 cups which eventually became up to 5 cups a day na lang). But ever since I said YES to the challenge to have that HEALTHY ACTIVE lifestyle, my 5cups became 0. Yup, ever since April 24, kinaya ko na walang coffee — so now I have 0 caffeine in my system for over a month already.

Let's face it, it’s not easy to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Honestly, I consider myself "a not so healthy eater" (prior to my fitness challenge). Lahat na yata ng hindi healthy eh yun yung mas gusto ko — did you know that I even cook hotdogs and eggs in butter. Yup, ganon ako kalala!

Oh and I could still clearly recall when I was sooooo addicted to coffee. My coffee is complete with "the works" — I drown it with milk, lots of creamer and sugar, and I think it's one of the culprits na din in my weight gain. 

Barlico — The Coffee Substitute
Don’t get me wrong ha, I’m not saying coffee ☕️ is bad for our health (in fact, when taken in moderation, coffee helps and give us antioxidants which is good for our health). What’s bad is yung anything that is too much. Kaya nga I’m glad that I discovered Barlico— it’s made of Barley & Chicory that taste and smells like coffee pero 100% caffeine-free! Hindi ko alam kung paano, pero sobrang lasang coffee talaga sya (well I think it is because of its ingredient, Chicory. It’s a better option to coffee lovers like me— gosh, meron naman palang alternative!
