DON’T DRINK COFFEE TO EXCESS

Ok I’ll be honest, this was one of my hardest challenges. I’m a coffee addict. I simply love sitting in Costa or Starbucks coffee shops writing my articles. Simply Heaven. But as they say too much of a good thing isn’t actually good for you. 

Studies do show that drinking coffee can lower risk of diseases like type 2 diabetes, neurological disorders and liver diseases. So in the right amounts it’s definitely good for you.
However, just because a little bit of something is good, it doesn’t mean that too much will be as well.

Again I’m not saying you have to cut out coffee or tea entirely. But you do have to limit your consumption. In its guidelines on caffeine consumption, the EU’s food safety watchdog has advised a daily limit of 400mg. This equates to about 4 cups of coffee.
What I will say is Green Tea is an excellent option if you are looking for a hot and healthy beverage.
There of course are other Don’t Do’s if you want a healthy lifestyle. Unprotected sex with a stranger would be one thing not to do. Driving without a seat belt. Taking recreational drugs. I would say these are things that just a little bit of common sense would say don’t do them.
