Coffee: Good or bad?

By October 29, 2013 December 18th, 2015 articles, Videos

It’s no secret that coffee is a common go-to beverage for people on the go, in need of a little boost. Unfortunately, in today’s caffeine-crazed world, it’s all too easy to find a cup that can throw your diet way off and set you back.

It’s a shame too, because all of the crazy combinations and recipes for all of the different types of beverages really give coffee a bad name. In fact, drinking coffee has a variety of benefits.

In fact, coffee has been linked to a decreased chance of developing Type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, skin cancer, oral cancer, and liver cancer.

In addition, studies have shown a correlation between caffeine intake and an increase in power output during workouts. Those who consumed around 3 mg of caffeine per kg of body weight were able to produce more power than those who didn’t!

And, of course, we’re all familiar with the post-caffeine jitters. That’s why it’s good to take vitamin C afterwards. It’ll help metabolize the caffeine quicker. So, those of you who work out in the evening will be able to rest assured (no pun intended) knowing that you can get your energy boost and still be able to sleep later!

However, that’s not to say that we’ve found an excuse to go out and drink a Trenta Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappucino. A lot of these specialty coffee drinks can easily run you hundreds of calories, with a ton of sugar and fat — the more stuff you add, the more it’ll cost you (in more ways than one). These culprits include whipped cream, sprinkles, higher-fat milk, whitener, sugar, artificial sweeteners — and the list goes on.

Luckily, Marc’s got a go-to version he uses when he drinks his coffee, and it’s delicious! His high-protein coffee is a simple blend of black coffee, with a half-scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream Whey Iso by Beyond Yourself. So here you get a good source of protein, low in calories, no sugar, and the caffeine you want to keep you going!



So remember, everyone, coffee doesn’t need to be something you stay away from in your daily life — in fact, it’s definitely worth embracing! With all of the health benefits, great taste, and its ability to give us a little jolt, you should definitely have a cup! Just remember to keep it simple with Marc’s high protein version.
