The Coffee Question – Friend Or Foe?

Caffeine is the world’s most consumed psychoactive drug, and coffee is still the most popular way of getting into our bodies. Hence the coffee question…

Should this be of any concern to you, or maybe your kids (average daily consumption of caffeine among youth, in it’s many forms, is growing at a rapid rate)?

Well, as usual here at HFF, the answer is… It depends.

Many factors come into play, including if you are a slow or fast metabolizer of caffeine, what kind of coffee you drink, how much and when you drink it, the rest of your nutrition and lifestyle habits (especially proper hydration), etc.

We’ve got a special treat for you today.  No, not a Pumpkin Spiced Latte, but something that is even more tasty, at least for your brain.

Below are three videos from one of our primary mentors for the last two decades, Paul Chek.  Paul is truly a holistic health and fitness pioneer, and knows more details about more topics than anyone I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting.

Warning:  these videos are longer than studies indicate the average adult attention span can endure (each averages about 15 minutes).  There are three videos, but you can skip the second one if you aren’t into brewing your own espresso at home.

If you’re into coffee, like yours truly, you owe it to yourself to set aside two 15-minute blocks of time to learn about 1) the benefits and potential downsides of  coffee consumption and 2) how to quit (just every now and then, definitely NOT for good!).
