start the day with coffee

What do you do first thing in the morning? For some people, the answer is to grab a cup of coffee, with or without caffeine. But doctors warn that this seemingly harmless habit can actually cause many health problems over time, including heart disease, skin problems, and others. If you want to keep your body healthy and looking good for years to come, it’s time to kick the habit and start fresh with these tips on how to stop drinking coffee every morning.

The risks of starting the day with coffee

Coffee is a fantastic and life-giving drink, but it can also have detrimental effects on your health. If you are not careful, one cup of coffee can affect you throughout the day. For example, drinking caffeinated beverages in the morning can make it difficult for you to fall asleep at night because caffeine stays in your system for 6 hours. Drinking coffee also causes you to lose sleep because it increases blood flow and releases adrenaline, which will lead to an increased heart rate and sweating. The risk for developing high cholesterol goes up by about 10% if you consume three or more cups of coffee per day. Furthermore, after consuming a large amount of coffee over the course of many days, tolerance builds up so that people who used to only need two cups now need four or five cups just to get the same amount of caffeine they used to get from two cups. The most dangerous side effect is addiction: people often develop a dependency on it and need it every day just so they can function properly.

The potential benefits of starting the day with coffee

The benefits of starting your day with coffee are twofold. First, it wakes you up and helps you start your day off on a good note. Second, it can help improve memory, reaction time, and focus. However, these positives come at a cost.

A recent study found that after an hour or so of drinking coffee, there was decreased mental function in subjects who drank four or more cups per day. Another study found that those who drink two cups per day had double the risk of developing cirrhosis compared to those who don't drink coffee at all. In addition, this caffeine addiction could lead to withdrawal symptoms such as headaches and irritability when going without it for extended periods. Drinking coffee throughout the day has also been linked to other health issues including heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.

How to enjoy coffee without putting your health at risk

If you're looking for a new way to enjoy coffee without putting your health at risk, here are some tips:

* Use almond milk or soy milk instead of cow's milk. * Make sure that it is organic and non-gmo. * Ask for half a cup or less of coffee when you order it. * Add a dash of cinnamon or stevia instead of sugar. * Add some coconut oil or ghee in place of cream. * Drink coffee after eating something like a healthy breakfast. * Drink decaf instead of caffeinated. * Limit yourself to one cup per day.

* The only real way to know if you have any health risks from drinking coffee is to have an MRI scan done and see if there is any damage present on your brain. * Be sure not to drink coffee too close to bedtime so that it doesn't affect your sleep cycle. * Don't drink too much coffee too fast or else you'll get jittery and experience caffeine withdrawal symptoms such as headache, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, irritability and depression. * It's also possible to develop dependency issues with coffee where people feel they need it just to function normally in their daily lives.
