I can't remember if I read this or someone told me that Charles Atlas discouraged his students from drinking tea and coffee. Any thoughts on this? I am a cup a day coffee drinker, but wonder if I there would be a more healthful alternative to my morning cup of Joe. Any recommendations? I have read that green tea has more health benefits.

Coffee is one of those things that has gone back and forth as good for you and bad for you. Right now science has it nailed down as good for you. I drink 4 to 5 cups a day with a little cream, no sugar. I think black is the best, but all in all it's a healthy beverage.

Now, a latte on the other hand? Or a mocha? Or 4 packs of sugar per cup? That's a totally different story.

Some "experts"(Caffeine Advantage) claim that caffeine is a good drug but that coffee is not the best delivery system for the drug.
I suspect many physical culturists reflexively deny the "science" behind caffeine research & claim caffeine aint natural( whatever that means)

It's obvious Atlas offers good guidelines but not gospel

Well, as Atlas was with his highest quality candy, so am I with my coffee (black) and my sweet tea. Oh well ...

I too enjoy a couple of cups a day.

As with anything in life I'm sure that in moderation it's ok. The link below has details on diet etc and also mentions caffeine (about half way down).

It's interesting stuff and can honestly say I've never felt better than when I cut out acid's etc from my diet. Of course I still have coffee but try to limit it and afterwards drink the same amount in water etc

Caffeine's "sweet spot" varies greatly for each of us. Research indicates that once it's established it coninues to deliver the benefits; unlike many other drugs you don't build up a toerance to caffeine.

Folks who don't like coffee or caffine pills, can get a healthy(?) fix from guarana & green tea
