how bad is coffee for you - Gwedin - 05-13-2017 09:27 AM

I would imagine that if you have some sort of 'issue' with processing coffee it would not be good for you.

nothing wrong with small/occasional quantities though, I s'pose. As long as you know your body and it knows you, etc.

Dunno about mentally though.

i think coffee contributes to me having the shits but i can't really say for certain.

what about large quantities? if i drink coffee it's a fuckhuge mug of it every day.


how bad is coffee for you - NiteRaidah - 05-13-2017 11:19 AM

yeah, I think larger quantities might be less of a positive.

Then again I don't drink coffee so I'm just speculating.

It shouldn't make you fat if you stop filling it with sugar. I have a friend who went keto and he just drinks it black now or just puts coconut oil or some shit in it (good fats in coffee are supposed to be nice and stuff). He buys decent local beans and grinds at home and uses a French press or something, that's how he can drink it black in the first place, lol.

i don't do any of this cuz i buy cheap powdered shit

so it's basically fine aside from the sugar one adds? and of course staying awake from the caffeine. i added two teaspoons of sugar. how bad is that actually gonna affect me as long as the rest of my diet is *relatively* healthy?


how bad is coffee for you - vonunov - 05-13-2017 02:24 PM

I wish I really knew. I assume total sugar in the diet should be taken into account rather than focusing on one thing.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coffee

This has a section on health effects but it doesn't mention sugar in relation to that. So I guess that the sugar should be evaluated simply as sugar and not as sugar having certain effects in concert with coffee, which makes it easier.

Losing the sugar should at least help you avoid a glycemic spike leading soon to undue hunger (which for me still happens eventually what with the stimulation) and loss of energy, while adding good fats instead should have the opposite effect.

IMO coffee isn't too bad, caffeine isn't really addictive either.

It's the sugar you should keep an eye on though.

yeah of course. i'm just curious as to how much sugar is two teaspoons of the shit out of how much one should consume daily as a percentage. if that makes sense. i really need to do actual diet math like shit to see what's going into my body but i'm so lazy when it comes to learning. gubmint oughta put a strong emphasis on health classes in school tbh, would've saved me having to do this shite myself and would be more useful for fucken life than the rest of the shit they cram in there and perhaps even cut down on obesity which is a massive strain on the healthcare system!!! i mean i'm pretty sure it is. anyway perhaps the obesity problem is mostly down to cultural laziness tho rather than a lack of education. or something. fruit is too expensive, needs to be subsidised somehow. paying out the damn arse for a bag of apples, god forbid i want fucken oranges. idk. bit of a tanget there. i hate that i'm only now beginning to give a damn about health and so much of society doesn't seem to give a flying fuck about it.

i replaced the morning cup with a cup of milk instead. i thought i loved drinking straight milk but it's already becoming very ehh... also due to the price of dairy here, i'm finding it's very expensive to drink a big fucken mug of it every day.

lel i suffered pretty bad for the first few days from not drinking it. headaches galore! i think. but god do i miss the taste and warmth of coffee. i don't think i consume too much sugar but i'd probably be surprised if i actually stopped and had a look. i know my strawberry jam that i have on toast in the weekends is fucken packed with the shit. i eat a shitload of bread too cuz sammies for work are so easy to make. wonder how much sugar's in that.


how bad is coffee for you - vonunov - 05-13-2017 05:11 PM

Lol yeah, that's the kind of detail I wish I knew. I'm flying barely less blind than you are. Razz

IIRC simple carbs are effectively sugar. Or they have the same effect or something. From what I've heard it all revolves around the effects on blood sugar and insulin. But if you have trouble buying milk it may be similarly hard to switch to whole grain. I'm just talking shit because it's not like I'm doing any of this. I'm broke so I takes what I can gets. I'm actually looking forward to eating clean at this point, lol.

If you haven't looked into glycemic index / glycemic load, that could be a good place to start.

Eh I'm a little skeptical on the whole GI/GL.

You can always start using peanut butter on your toast.
