Should I Give Up Coffee?

should i quit coffee

As I have been reading articles on how to make changes for a healthier lifestyle, I keep coming up against conflicting information on coffee drinking. I used to think that coffee was some sort of super food cause it seemed like every week I was hearing something on TV about it being good for cancer or other ailments. Well, now that I have been doing this research, it seems like the opinion on it is split.

Some people say that coffee is good for you and to drink it every day. Other people say that coffee is not good for you and that you should stop drinking it period.

So, how do you know what to think, right?

I have been really giving this a lot of thought because I really want to make the best possible decisions when it comes to things like this. I mean, I do think that is really the only way to be sure that you are giving yourself the best possible chance of success. So, this has really been messing with my mind this week. I mean, I’d hate to give up coffee only to learn on down the line that it truly is a super food. And on the flip side, I’d hate to keep drinking it and find out that it is worse for you than expected.

Since I cannot seem to find any real consensus on this either way, I have decided to come up with a compromise that lets me kind of straddle the fence here. I will continue to drink coffee for the health benefits. BUT – I will do so only in moderation due to the possible negative health consequences of drinking coffee. And based on some of what I read, I need to switch to only organic coffee to make sure that I am not getting any pesticide residue in my java.

Hopefully, this is the smart decision for me and I will not harm my health in any way.
