    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.
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

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

    Dr. Bork Bork, I adore you in all of your well informed cleverness! I just ordered one of each of their six flavors!

    I am anxiously awaiting the Cavallo. I hope you post reviews on the various flavors in your journal, PB, cause it was sooo tough deciding (especially that dark roast Cavallo...)

    Ya, I was trying to decide too and then I just gave up and bought all six. If you buy over $75 (the six 1lb bags come to about $80) the shipping is free.
    Reviews will be on my journal. Stay tuned.

    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 ).
    Crio Brü and Crio Beans are Rich in Antioxidants, Minerals and Natural Energy - Healthy Chocolate for Healthy Living

    P.S. ignore the Dr. Oz poster.
