Significant weight loss guaranteed, or your virus back!
Noticed today that my fingers looked thinner than normal, and my wedding ring slid off very easily.
So, I weighed myself. Last time I did that was 24th April (before I got this) and I registered as 74.4Kg. Today ... 69.5Kg - Five kilos in under two weeks.
So far rapid weight loss you can see, get all your mates together and go have a barbie until you catch it.
What makes me laugh is that brings my BMI down to 22.7, which the means to NHS is describing me as "Healthy".
How am I doing? Not well - today's Surprise symptom is "Thick, solid, dark brown mucus" which if it continues is going to need a call to the doctor, as it's probably blood, and that's a bad sign.
O did manage to eat three small "biscuits-for-cheese" last night and kept them down, but nothing today, and it's been a week without coffee and that's not helping at all.

I decaffeinate myself about once/year - but I taper off over a period of 8-10 days. For the purposes of this, had I not decaffeinated I'd suffer a most distressing headache. It could readily compound other symptoms from other causes.
First, it is not terrible for you. Not why I drink it, but it is now essentially proven to prevent prostate cancer. Rather Unterrible.
And I like how it tastes.
And I like getting lit in the morning, when I'm already at max attention, to take advantage of the caffeine-makes-you-smarter (temporarily) effect: magic coding powers ensue (until about 1:00 PM or so).
A saying I made up some years ago: "Sometimes you just need better vices" and this one is really better than most (along with single malt scotch).
That's your opinion and I allow it. Not sure why you think being addicted to a drug is not terrible for you.

How does caffeine taste? Maybe you meant coffee? Caffeine has a bitter taste.

Nope. You mean coffee? I think your whole response might be around coffee which is not what I had said. Regardless, tomatoes also help prevent prostate cancer. So, why choose an addictive drug over a vegetable?
I can also lose weight by cutting off my leg. Doesn't make it a good idea.

Now that you mnention it, it suddenly occurs to me that after we were sent to our home offices about seven weeks ago, I haven't used my coffee machine even once!
At the office, I might drink at least one liter, sometimes two, during a normal working day. At home, I usually stick to tea (black, strong - usually Lapsang Suchong). I really was expecting that I would be brewing a lot of coffee for the home office, but that hasn't happened.
It certainly is not that my Home Coffee is any lower quality - quite to the contrary! From a rational point of view, you would expect a huge increase in my coffee budget, especially now that I am out of Lapsang Suchong and my tea provider is corona closed. It just hasn't happened. I might employ some researcers to try to find out why.
