Hi again .... In my last few posts I have been talking about being tired and stressed. It seems that when we are like this a lot of us tend to go for that quick fix of a cup of coffee.... Hands up , be honest if this is you........
I know I have.... You will find a lot of information about caffeine and its effects on the body...... Does it increase inflammation..... Does it make you more stressed by raising you heart rate etc, etc.
I have gone through the ban caffeine 100% from my diet but over time I have come to implement these rules for drinking coffee...........
If I wake up tired in the morning then definitely I do not drink caffeine after 2pm. In fact I like to have 1 coffee in the morning with my wife for enjoyment and a catch up. That satisfies my love of coffee without damaging my health I also make sure I never drink coffee on an empty stomach as this can lead to exhaustion and feelings of false hunger later on.
Let me know what you think........
