Health Myths…busted, or not? ~ "Coffee Boosts Metabolism"

Coffee Boosts Metabolism

Although coffee may boost metabolism, it is only for a short period of time and adverse effects would cause more problems in the long run. Consuming excessive amounts of caffeine can contribute to insomnia, anxiety, irregular heartbeat, and many other unpleasant side effects. Those with conditions effecting the heart, are prone to anxiety attacks, or have mood swings may want to avoid having too much caffeine.

I used to drink a whole pot of coffee in a day! My coffee drinking increased when I was in college and while other classmates attested to coffee helping them stay up late at night for that exam crunch time, it never seemed to keep me awake. Although, I experienced higher stress levels, anxiety, irregular heartbeat and crankiness.

My weight dropped when I reduced my coffee consumption, increased my water intake, improved my eating habits and exercised regularly. I still enjoy a cup now and then. But, I do not add any cream or sugar to my coffee. In fact, I occasionally like to add just a little bit of cold coffee to my meal replacement, Shakeology to change up the flavor. The nutritional benefits in Shakeology kick all other “health blend” drinks out the door!

As with anything you see promoting quick weight-loss in magazines, drug store shelves, infomercials and the internet. Always do your research, check with your medical professional and be sensible when making health and fitness choices….your life depends on it!
