Coffee, when consumed in the right way, can in fact be used as a health and fitness enhancing tool.
In one recent study, athletes who consumed caffeine pre-exercise burned 15 percent more calories for three hours post-exercise, compared to the control group.
Other functional benefits of a pre-workout cup of coffee include improved microcirculation, pain reduction, improved endurance, muscle preservation, and improved memory.
When used before exercise, coffee will give you a good boost, and will work to optimize the benefits of exercise; stimulating energy production and fat burning.
Taken after exercise, coffee is more likely to inhibit recuperation and rather continue mimicking the effects of exercise on your body.
If you exercise in the evening, you may want to skip the pre-workout cup of coffee however, as it can disrupt your sleep cycle by keeping you alert well into the night.
Ed. Notes: Drinking coffee can not only help well-fed people of the North lose weight, it can also help the hungry people of the South put on a few pounds. Coffee comes from poor tropical places. Landowners in the tropics do especially well by the Northern demand for coffee … which is why everyone should own some land and not have to work the orchards for others.
The best way to reform land ownership is to institute land dues or land taxes. Having to pay dues makes it impossible to profit from owning more than one can use and just trying to be a middle man. Owners with excess sell off their excess in order to avoid paying land dues. That leaves more land available for former tenant farmers. It’s a reform that has worked wherever tried.
If only there were some way to tie drinking coffee in the North to sharing out land in the South!
