    Like almost anything moderation is the key.I have 2 cups in the morning - just regular brewed coffee, and then I may or may not have 1 more during the day.
    Total 4 at the very most but sometimes 3, usually 2.
    There is no evidence that says a bit is bad but a heap that suggests (only suggests mind you) that a few cups is beneficial.At worst a few cups is not bad for you.

    Health Benefits of Coffee - WebMD

    Study: Drinking Coffee Has Health Benefits - ABC News

    Benefits of Coffee - high in antioxidants

    The physical health benefits aside, I love a cuppa - and I mean that ,it is one of my biggest pleasures of the day ,and it is essential to my mental wellbeing.
    These days I would prefer to meet a mate/chick for a coffee rather that a beer so I`m not out on the turps.

    Don't like to have too much coffee, but def find it helps up the intensity of the workout. But too much and I get the shakes.

    I love my coffee. And smashing a double espresso before my Saturday morning workout gives me a great energy increase.

    But as usual anything in moderation.

    Coffee has a two edged sword. It's one powerful fat mobiliser at the cellular level and a CNS stimulant, which is great for making you alert. That's great.

    Consume too much in one sitting and and it'll be like taking a mini speed tablet (not that I've taken one before) but have seen the effects first hand: and it's not a pretty sight.

    What's too much? Everyone has a differnt threshhold. I don't drink coffee at all and it acts like a drug on me if I was to consume it. Stopped it at the age of 15 with soft drinks.

    these people are the biggest dicks. I don't like coffee and dont drink it either.

    If it helps them work so much, how come I am in every morning earlier than them and finish my work for the day by 3 when at this time they are still stalling for time and fart arsing about.

    So annoying, these seem to be the same people who make your day go slower as you have to wait on them for work sometimes.
