PostPosted: Tue Jan 02, 2007 11:10 pm 
i was wondering how many cups of coffee are ok in a day for someone who is health conscious.
are there any long term side effects from having say 3 to 4 cups everyday? can one have more?

Good question Dino. I've heard and seen "studies" that cover the entire specrum, from good to bad. Personally, I've been drinking about 2-3 cups a day and have had no problems. As long as I stop around noon, other wise I'll have trouble getting to sleep. the latest thing going around is it may help ward off Alzheimer's. Anyway, I trust Wikipedia, and here is their take on it.

From a professional stand point, no more than 2 cups day for coffee. I have a friend that was like 5 to more a day and coffee will play a big part later in life with the blood pressure. She drank that much and did have problems. They told her to quit the coffee. She did cold turkey and went in a caffeine with draw and did do some real tricks on her. She had to go back drinking the coffee and whining her self off.

After a couple of cups of coffee a day find another great drink to use. Water is the greatest. I takes all the nasty stuff out of the blood stream and also helps vital organs to function better and get cleaned out...

Your choice to stay with the coffee or try a different drink...

an add on here to mistys post....you can have a cup of coffee before your workout to take advantage of the caffeine as a thermogenic. I agree, dont go overboard.

I avoid caffeine altogether, save for the weak iced tea in the summer.

Fun Fact: Coffee, tea, and dairy leech iron from the body.

I honestly think that athletes are better off without caffeine.
