    Hi Dekan,

    While I can't seem to find a list of caffeine foods to avoid, you might get some more info from the article Caffeine Myths and Facts that may help.

    You might also want to ask our Health Expert, Elaine Magee, MPH, RD on our Food & Cooking Community . I've been told that Elaine has a great book series on "What do I eat if I have...".

    Speaking of sun tea, here's an article on just that subject! What's Good about Iced Tea (and what you need to watch out for)

    Hope that helps!
