Damn camera! The picture is supposed to show me drinking a tall blended coffee at coffee bean. As I have written in "inserting coffee in my pantyhose", caffeine is a common ingredient found in diet pill. This became the basis of a vague diet guide called coffee diet. Coffee is promoted heavily as a good beverage to help people lose weight while maintaining the muscle. Sounds like a great news right? The coffee diet suggests us to drink 5 glasses of coffee throughout the day.
While I might happily do so, coffee turns out to be a "not so good" drink for our body. In fact weight loss is even out of the question if you drink too much coffee everyday.
The reasons that this diet became highly popular were because coffee is rich in anti oxidants and a lot of fad diet like master cleanse diet and cabbage soup diet, which were also popular, did not include coffee in their diet. I can tell that it's hard to stop drinking coffee for a while. That's why this coffee diet gained some popularity, especially amongst coffee lover. Here are some reasons why loving Starbucks too much is harmful.
Thankfully my rate of drinking coffee is just one cup of coffee in the morning. And a n additional tall Starbucks without whipped cream on weekend. The first reason why coffee is not a good beverage for diet is because coffee is closely associated with sugar and cream. Amongst million of coffee cults, I am sure that most of them won't enjoy coffee if it's served without sugar and cream. This is one of a problem, since the sugar and cream are definitely not good for your waist if it's consumed in excess. A solution is to consume coffee with skimmed milk and low fat sugar. But this is also not good if consumed in excess.
The second reason is that coffee affects our blood sugar and blood pressure level in a bad way. The stimulant function that caffeine causes to our body will trigger a release of adrenaline. The adrenaline in turn will release sugar to our blood. This is what makes us alert after drinking coffee. Too much coffee can put you into risk of heart attack. So by all means let's drink our coffee moderately. I know that in USA people tend to visit Starbucks everyday. Luckily in my country, Starbucks outlets are so few that it's impossible for me to visit them everyday. Drink your coffee in moderation and next time you go to Starbucks, say "No whipped cream" please.
