    From the very article...a Dr. said "'There is an overwhelming wealth of evidence showing that caffeine does increase alertness levels by acting as a stimulant on the central nervous system by prompting the release of adrenaline,' he said.

    I stopped drinking coffee and other caffeinated drinks because I don't like having to rely on it to wake me up in the morning, without the caffeine withdrawals I don't need to drink it, and my caffeine withdrawals included headaches, extreme tiredness and dizziness.

    I much prefer hot water and lemon in the mornings now

    I'll take my medical advice from the Daily Mail when I start getting the truth about celebrities from the National Enquirer.

    Speak for yourself.

    Even if coffee weren't a stimulant, it has other benefits, including antioxidants. We should all have a cup!

    I still drink coffee. I'm not anti it as someone said, just anti people who use it as an excuse.

    caffeine is the number one ingredient in most weight loss and/or fat burning pills. caffeine is a proven stimulant that has many health benefits when taken in moderation.

    I am not saying it is effective for fat burning or weight loss, although IMO it is to a degree, but I dont know anyone in my life that use it as an "excuse".

    Coffee before bed helps you sleep faster. ;)

    It's also an appetite-suppressant.

    D'ya know what? I don't care if it doesn't wake me up, I enjoy not only that first mug of coffee in the morning, but all the coffee I drink, else I wouldn't drink it. :drinker:

    It's not just the coffee, it's the morning ritual I enjoy. I get up way before the fam, have my coffee, and poke around on the internet. I love everything about it from the way it smells to the way it tastes. My days are much happier with coffee. Plus, it's sterile and I like the taste.

    I agree. Way to throw in a good quote too :)

    I agree that coffee doesn't wake you up. I get more of an energy boost from a piece of fruit. That comes from someone who has 1-2 cups of coffee in the morning. I don't need it to wake up but I do enjoy it with my breakfast.

    I like it because it's tasty and is a good low-calorie appetite suppressant. I drink decaf - just a smidge of caffeine is acceptable for me.

    I pulled this off of WebMD.... Here is the URL http://www.webmd.com/food-recipes/features/coffee-new-health-food

    Coffee may taste good and get you going in the morning, but what will it do for your health?

    A growing body of research shows that coffee drinkers, compared to nondrinkers, are:

    less likely to have type 2 diabetes, Parkinson's disease, and dementia
    have fewer cases of certain cancers, heart rhythm problems, and strokes

    “There is certainly much more good news than bad news, in terms of coffee and health,” says Frank Hu, MD, MPH, PhD, nutrition and epidemiology professor at the Harvard School of Public Health.

    As long as you dont load it up on sugar and cream, I think you are good to go....
