  • So after reading marks post about coffee today, i have a query.

    Should i refrain from drinking coffee, decaf or otherwise, in the afternoon after i've completed a workout and am just lounging around and probably won't do much of anything the rest of the day?

    also does coffee help aide gut health or hinder it. I've seen conflicting reports on this.

    Wow I had this same question. I don't drink coffee all that often but when I do its almost always when I'm sitting around doing nothing.

      I drink at least half a pot every day, with coconut milk, usually upon waking. But I can have coffee anytime and usually fall asleep just fine. I like it before I work out, definitely feels better that way.

      It seems, in my N=1, that once I cross that threshold of casual drinker to daily drinker, additional coffee makes little difference to me. But if I am only drinking two or three cups a day and then have more late in the day, it does mess with me. Gray zone, there.

      Gut health? Helps me poop. That's pretty useful.

        Try Crio Bru instead. It's roasted ground cacao nibs that you brew like coffee. More antioxidants, lower acidity. Just a sugestion

            What? Crio Bru? It costs about the same as a good bag of joe-- about $6 or $7 for 12 oz (also it's produced here in Utah, so of course I'm all about promoting a local product ).

                Enjoy your coffee and cream or coconut milk and stop worrying about. It's all good.

                    Coffee is not paleo. it is not a "whole food". It contains significant doses of a psychoactive drug.

                    Why is this even a topic for discussion?

                    If you want to drink it, go ahead and drink it, but don't try and fool yourself into thinking its either natural or healthy.

                      This isn't a paleo forum.

                      It is a primal blueprint forum. Primal is what Mark says it is. He says coffee is fine.

                      Many studies have found health benefits from coffee.

                      It is most obviously a "whole" food.

                        Then all this has no more value than any other personality-led "because I say so" diet. The plain fact is that coffee is not in any way shape or form a primal food.

                          Although I do love a good coffee and usually have 1-3 good size mugs per day, I do have to agree with DeeDub.
                          If you like your coffee go for it but to try and convince yourself or others that it is for health reasons is a bit of a stretch.
                          Mark probably likes his coffee too, and probably treats it as part of the 20% not so primal part of the diet.
                          As for health benefits, you could get more studies to show the benefits of consuming Canola oil.

                              As a person of neanderthal descent, I would have eventually found something to aid my focus. Neanderthals pretty much always had potent plants around, often caffeine-containing ones. One downside to having a great sensory system and a brain that notices everything is a loss of focus. That's where the caffeine and similar substances have always filled in.
