like coffee?

monday is the only day of the week when i might feel like i "need" coffee




on my old blog i wrote about coffee, so this is mostly taken from there . i’m not necessarily addicted or “lost” when i don’t have it, but i usually have about one cup a day not only for the energy boost in the morning but also because i love the taste :]



i researched my love for coffee with good ol’ google and was directed to a ton of sites that offered legit information as well as people’s personal opinions. as per WebMD :

Pros:
  • less likely to have type 2 diabetes, parkinson’s disease, and dementia
  • have fewer cases of certain cancers, heart rhythm problems, and strokes
  • antioxidants!
Cons:
  • both regular and decaffeinated coffee contain acids that can make heartburn worse.
  • caffeine can raise blood pressure, as well as blood levels of the fight-or-flight chemical epinephrine (also called adrenaline)
so there are a lot more pros and cons that coincide with coffee but here’s the bottom line. coffee is not bad for you. drinking one [12oz] cup of coffee a day will do no harm but if you over do it, some of those cons may start creeping up on you! (heartburn? no thanks.)
don’t like drinking coffee black? if using creamer, stick to the regular stuff. don’t go for the fat free stuff because, like diet soda products, there are actually more chemicals used to make the creamer to keep it “skinny” that could be more harmful to your body. if you still want to stay away from regular creamer, just simply use non-fat (or less fat) milk. looking for sweetness? onepack of a splenda type product will do the trick :]
i hope this info was just as helpful to you as it was to me!
