A former Mormon has revealed the bizarre list of rules she had to follow when she was a member of the strict religious group – from a ban on coffee to extreme regulations about dating.

Alyssa Grenfell, 31, regularly shares tidbits from her past Mormon life to social media, documenting her journey from active church participant in the ultra-religious sect to finally leaving the group.

In a recent YouTube video, Alyssa, who now lives in Austin, Texas, with her husband and two kids, shared the list of rules she was forced to follow when she was a member of the church.

‘I did not drink coffee until I was 23,’ the mom-of-two shared in the clip. ‘Because I thought that if I drank coffee God would not let me through the Pearly Gates.’

The bizarre rule is just one of many that Alyssa believed to be true, until leaving the Mormon church with her husband when she was in her late 20s.

She explained that Mormons follow a health code called The Word of Wisdom – which was a scripture essentially given to Joseph Smith when he was organizing the church in what was supposedly a health code given to the Saints for them to follow.

She added despite common misconception that coffee is banned due to the caffeine, that’s not actually the case.

‘Mormons do love their Monster energy drinks, their Red Bull caffeine – you¬†know even Dr Pepper, Coke, Diet Coke – those are all well loved within the Mormon community so it is not about caffeine,’ she pointed out. ‘The reason coffee is prohibited is just the coffee itself – nothing more.’
