Well, this one might sting a little so I’ve giving you a heads up.
And before we dive in, I want you to know that I am not ‘taking away’ your coffee or wine, but I do want you to think about them in relation to when, how and why you consume them through the vane of optimal health, healthspan, energy and strength.
Recently I was reading an article from, Robin Berzin MD, where she said she frequently sees these patterns in her clinic. People stay up late, watch TV or play on other screens, relying on a nightcap to help them doze off. In the morning they rely on coffee to fire up the day and start the pattern all over again.
A cup or two of coffee in the morning and a glass of red wine a few times a week may not create many health ripples.
BUT, if the cycle grows and takes on a “must-do” edge, it may be time to consider ways to break free!
And I have to be honest and say I see this ALOT in our online community and perhaps even more so since the pandemic.
And this cycle can lead to lethargy, gut issues and lack of motivation to want to exercise or make lifestyle changes.
So in today’s episode, we’re going to talk about the truth about coffee and wine, the effect it has on our brain, what this does to your hormones, and does it has a correlation with anxiety?
Remember: More is not always better.
If there’s one word you need to keep repeating to yourself, as if your life depended on it, it’s “moderation.”
