For many people, coffee consumption has virtually no effect: They can drink a cup of coffee at 7 o'clock and be ready for sleep at 8 o'clock.
For other people, on the other hand, coffee can affect energy levels, sleep quality, etc.
How do you know if you are drinking more coffee than you should?
According to Caroline Cederquist, MD, it's important to listen to your body.
First, you need to understand that "a lot" of coffee for someone may be nothing for someone else.
However, there are clear signs that you are overloading your body with caffeine. These signs include symptoms such as:
- Feeling nervous
- Rapid heartbeat
- Hand tremors
- Frequent urination
- Insomnia etc.
To avoid these unpleasant side effects, Dr. Cederquist recommends sticking to FDA guidelines (no more than 400 mg of caffeine per day) or consulting a doctor to determine what's best for you, as well as judging your tolerance based on how your body reacts to caffeine.
If you have noticed that excessive coffee is harming you, but you don't know how to "leave it", try consuming decaffeinated coffee gradually, consuming less and less caffeine.
