THE BEST COFFEE FOR YOUR HEALTH, ACCORDING TO EXPERTS
There’s no denying coffee has to be one of the most ordered drink in the world. We here in Australia drink almost 2 kilograms of coffee per person! Unfortunately, even though many of us worship the jitter juice, coffee can actually be affecting your life more than you know.
A nutritionist has recently jumped up on Instagram to ruin our day, telling us that not all coffee-based drinks are equal when it comes to our health.

Coffee vs. “coffee”! ☕️🤤 Which side are you? — ☝🏼 Most coffee chain offerings are loaded with sugar and fat which can make you feel bloated, while a simple iced coffee has more coffee, and no sugar and fat. Certainly good news for our waistlines but also for overall health! — 🔬 The literature favoring coffee as a means of improving life and healthspan seems to be weighed in favor of consumption (at least for the general population—everyone is different). — 🎉 In a recent study, people who consumed 1 cup of coffee a day (including decaf) were 12% less likely to die from heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes, and respiratory and kidney disease over 16 years compared to those who didn't drink coffee. People who drank 2-3 cups per day were 18% less likely. — ✅ The notable thing about this research was that the study population was highly diverse (this is called population heterogeneity)—it was varied in ethnic makeup, encompassing African-Americans, Japanese-Americans, Latinos and white people. This means that the effect is more likely to apply to the general population (although still, its a correlation, which can not prove causation). — ❓How does coffee work for you? Does it make you feel good? Or jittery? Let me know fam. 👇🏼 — Personally, I decided to redefine my relationship with coffee and now only drink a small amount once a day (not every day or multiple times a day as I was) as a pre-workout ergogenic. 🏋️♂️ — Study referenced: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28693036 • • • • • #weightloss #healthyfood #healthyeating #cleaneating #healthylifestyle #nutrition #healthyliving #weightlossjourney #healthychoices #protein #fitfood #coffeetime #cafe #iifym #instafit #glutenfree #healthylife #exercise #organic #coffeelover #fitnessjourney #gains #wellness #coffeeaddict #getfit #fitgirl #fitnessmotivation #fitspiration #plantbased #muscle
So, we want coffee, but want the healthiest version, what should be we drinking?
A regular iced long black. I know, I know. Boring right? But hear me out. Not only does it have 0 calories, but on the bright side you get more coffee and there are even health benefits!
A 2017 study found who smash one cup of coffee a day were 12 per cent less likely to die from heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes, and respiratory & kidney disease. Bottoms up.
