I’ve said it before and I will say it again – I believe 1 to 2 cups of coffee a day can be healthy.
With that said – I think most people actually drink about 3 to 6 cups!
If that sounds like you, you may want to consider cutting back. The problem with too much caffeine goes beyond the jitters – it can anxiety, sleep issues and serious hormonal imbalances.
I know this habit isn’t an easy one to break, so these are my top tips to cut back your coffee intake:
1. My nutritional advice is to have no more than 1 to 2 coffees per day. (That means 2 shots of espresso, not 4!)
2. Start your day with warm lemon water before coffee, which can be dehydrating.
3. Drink your coffee before noon. I try to drink my coffee around 9am. I would also advise you to skip the afternoon coffee because caffeine can stay in your system for hours and make it difficult to fall asleep.
