If you’re like me, there’s nothing better than a good cup (gallon) of coffee in the morning. My day just isn’t right if it doesn’t start with eggs, bacon, and that delicious black gold. I watch the news every morning and it seems like a couple times a month I hear the results of some study claiming that coffee is the greatest or worst thing you can do for your body. So which is it? Is coffee good or bad?
Well folks, I’ve been scouring the interwebs for the last few hours trying to find definitive proof that I could share with all of you. Unfortunately, I’ve come up empty. There are even some studies that say 1-2 cups is fine, but more is bad. Other studies say if you aren’t having 5 cups a day then you aren’t capitalizing on the anti-oxidant potential. Coffee apparently helps with short term memory, dementia, Parkinson’s, and is anti-diabetic. Yet somehow causes high blood pressure, stomach problems, and high cholesterol. Now I’m really confused… So who’s right? I think it’s nobody and everybody. You’re confused now too? I realized that I should try to think about coffee from a logical standpoint. Does it make me feel good?
I think coffee is about like everything else, as long as you drink it in moderation, and it makes you feel good, it’s probably fine for you. I have a pretty good idea of how specific foods make my body react. Some people are lactose intolerant, but milk makes me feel better after a workout than a protein shake. I’ve learned that I can’t handle gluten in any form. I feel awful after a slice of pizza, so I stopped eating it. I think every person is different and as long as you’re aware of that, and eat within those boundaries, you’ll continue to feel great.
So, how does coffee make you feel?
