    Veyatziv- Have you tried Green or White Tea? These teas have less cafeine than Coffee and may be what you are looking for in a drink to finish the nightly chores.

    Sorry, shindy. I was completely joking – I have no idea “how much” is OK and I would imagine it varies by individual greatly.

    Yank the Aussie: I juice fruits all the time. When I have a cold I squeeze every citrus I can find into a cup and drink it. But that has nothing to do with coffee. And as for Ginseng and Guarana – I don’t care if the molecular structure is exactly the same as coffee – that is the same argument that splenda uses to substitute itself for sugar. If you want to quote me the Rambam on “being shomer the guf” then avoid these products. Coffee is much less of a problem.

    jewish feminist- nothing to be proud of. Its as if id say that I never ate peppers in my life(i dont like them!!!). Anyway- nothing wrong with a cup of coffee a day, even two.

    Just in case anyone missed my post earlier in this thread, I just wanted remind you that my brother had a horrible seizure (while driving a car with his wife and 9 children). He drank around 12 cups of coffee a day. The doctors told him the coffee was one of the factors that gave him the seizure. It caused him to get dangerously high blood pressure. He started out with just 1 cup, which led to 2 cups, then 3 cups, until he reached the 12+ cup mark. His doctor forbade him from drinking even one little cup of coffee ever again. You never know how many cups of coffee can be toxic for you body. Some people’s bodies are more sensitive than others. If you’re going to consume large amounts of coffee, I would suggest buying a home blood pressure monitor (you can get them for cheap or even free now days), and see a doctor more regularly. Also, keep your eyes open to any new symptoms you may be experiencing, the earlier you catch things, the better your chances are for recovery.

    “Totally nothing to be proud of, on the contrary you don’t know what you’re missing!”

    I just tried my first cup of coffee yesterday and really liked it. I drank it with lots of milk and sugar, so the flavor wasn’t quite so strong, which made me realize that that’s also an important factor to consider. I don’t know how you all take your coffee; maybe you drink it black, in which case this isn’t relevant. But aside from the nutritional value of the coffee itself, it’s important to monitor the amounts of milk/cream/sugar/half and half/splenda or whatever else you put in your coffee.

    Even having discovered that I like coffee, I would never drink more than one or two small cups a day for fear of addiction.

    Smartcookie, it’s not a fair analogy, because peppers don’t come with any dangers of addiction or other health risks. I happen to love peppers, and I could tell you that you don’t know what you’re missing, but I recognize that people have different tastes. So it was with me and coffee until yesterday.

    I’ve read repeatedly that articles and studies about coffee are generally talking 6+ cups per day.

    re feivel: why hyper patients should avoid RAI even though the vast majority of the endocrinologists in the US recommend it:

    It will leave a patient hypO for life, and not all docs modulate it well. (I have undying thanks to Rebbetzin Weisenfeld zt”l for bringing up that point, which made me think it over.)

    The risk of developing thyroid eye disease increases; if already present it will almost definitely be exacerbated.

    Many more reasons. Check out the [email protected] board. The homepage, when I last checked it out is excellent.

    To the olam: does this win the prize for greatest tangent from the original topic 😉

    #803370

    Squeak, that’s not funny.

    Tzippi, this doesn’t come close to winning the prize. My vote goes to the “How to Block the Internet from my Children” thread, but there are plenty of others.

    As a side note, this thread should really be called “*Are* 3 Cups of Coffee a Day Too *Many*” and not “*Is* 3 Cups of Coffee a Day Too *Much*”. (Nitpicking, perhaps, but I’m a grammar enthusiast. Yes, one of those.)

    I had coffee again this morning. I definitely like it, but I will monitor how much I drink.

    squeak, I did enjoy your comment.

    jf02, Don’t start bad habits. Whats the mitzvah of drinking coffee?

    #803372

    As I said, I’m going to monitor how much coffee I drink so that it doesn’t become an addiction or a “bad habit.” No, there’s no mitzvah to drink coffee. Can you honestly tell me that every action you take in life is a mitzvah? I don’t believe that’s possible.

    tzippi,

    Rebbetzin Weisenfeld z”l was a distant relative of mine & someone I very much admired, so I for one appreciated that tangent.

    If I need to get up early and stay up late I drink about a quart of double strength coffee with added cocoa powder either before or after shacharis. I try not to do it too often.

    Itzik, for your situation I would recommend using duct tape to hold your eyelids open. Coffee is for enjoyment.

    LOL – never found the taste of coffee too enjoyable except as a yogurt or ice cream flavor. for me it is a cheaper and more natural version of Red Bull.

    As far as I know, Red Bull was and remains kosher under the supervision of Dayan Elzas of the “Federation” of London. The Red Bull site still has the same information which is that it is kosher supervised but does not mention the agency.

    Just to be sure, check Red Bull by calling or writing to Rabbi Eliezer Eidlitz from KosherQuest. He is very reliable and will always go out of his way to get and provide up to date information.

    Itzik, it is my guess that you never tasted coffee. Drinking instant does not count. See the other coffee thread (which is titled for some reason “How much time do you spend on YWN).

    You are right Squeak. I have not tasted real coffee and I am referring to instant.
