I used to drink Tall Red Eye or black eye from star bucks (depending on my mood and energy levels) prior to my workouts, but I recently stumbled upon John M. Berardi article about the dangers of consuming coffee/caffeine.
Basically he said
"So the final word on coffee and caffeine is this ï¿½?? stay the heck away from it! The only way to minimize the damage it causes may be to drink your coffee with a very low carbohydrate meal and eat only low carb meals for the next few hours after your coffee intake. I know, I know, it now sucks to be a coffee drinker! But giving up your java may bring you some great health and physique benefits"
What would I be able to take in place of coffee to get the same benefits? I used to take shock therapy but my body no longer reacts the way it did when I first started taking it, this might be because my body has built a tolerance to caffeine. Not really a fan of popping pills before a workout. Coffee was such a delicious drink but I don't want to sacrifice gains for taste.
Would appreciate if someone can enlighten me on this matter.
