I admit to drinking coffee daily.  I love coffee.  I did have to cut back, though.  I used to drink an entire pot of coffee daily.  At first, I cut back one cup per day for a week at a time.  Then, I drank half a pot of coffee daily for years.  Recently, I’ve cut back to 2 large cups (technically, 4 cups) per day.  Sometimes, I add the third (6th).  Honestly, I’m not sure I could cut back any more than that.  How about y’all?

There Is A Limit When It Comes To Coffee

If you need a pot of Joe to get through the day, you might want to dial it back. Turns out, there is a limit when it comes to coffee consumption.

Research published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition reveals that six or more cups of Java ups the risk of a heart ailment by up to 22 percent.

The study marks the first time scientists have attached a cup number limit that notes when damage could start setting in. “Coffee is the most commonly consumed stimulant in the world – it wakes us up, boosts our energy and helps us focus – but people are always asking ‘How much caffeine is too much?’,” asks Dr. Elina Hypponen of the Australian Centre for Precision Health.

How much coffee do you drink in a day? What happens if you skip your daily jolt?
