I know what you’re thinking, why in the world would anyone want to give up coffee? Saying anything bad about coffee is like telling the French that cheese is unhealthy. I’m not going to go into great detail about why coffee may or may not be great for you - like most things, in moderation, studies have indicated that it is actually good for you! The key word being “moderation”, which many Americans have a very loose definition of. The problem is that most people don’t have one cup of coffee a day but have up to 10 and we can all agree that that’s not healthy. Also, let’s be clear about what a “cup” is because going to Starbucks and ordering a Venti Coffee does not mean that it counts as your first “cup” of the day ;) You are in reality drinking 2.5 cups of coffee. My point is - just because it fits into a "cup", does not mean it measures 1 cup. I think we're on the same page now.
