Today we’re going to talk about how much coffee a person should drink and what can happen if someone drinks too much coffee. Coffee contains caffeine, which blocks a certain chemical that makes you sleepy. 

Consuming too much coffee can affect cortisol and adrenaline. Cortisol can help regulate your blood sugars if they’re too low. But, cortisol decreases insulin sensitivity. So, if your cortisol is too high, it can knock you out of ketosis. 

Cortisol spikes at about 8:30 am. If you drink coffee throughout the day, you’re continually spiking cortisol. As you do that, you start stressing out the body, which has side effects. Spiking adrenaline can also put you into fight or flight mode. 

If a person wants to drink coffee, I think they should consume no more than 8 oz. of coffee in one day. 

Potential side effects of consuming too much coffee:
• Fatigue 
• Insomnia 
• Less ketosis
• Anxiety 
• Less cognitive function 
• Decreased serotonin 
• Tight neck 
• Less digestion 
A few good things to try:
• Decaf coffee
• Teeccino
• Tea (naturally decaffeinated)
