And because of our hectic lifestyle here, many of us turn to the wrong fluid...COFFEE....and really excessive!!


Yes, you are right....or worse, beer and hard liquor.

I don't think coffee in moderation is a big issue. I have mine black now and seldom have more than one or shots a day.
I have a pile of stuff that pushes out squiggly waveforms from smaller squiggly waveforms that sometimes come from 1's and 0's.
It's wonderful to behold as long as you don't let the magic smoke out.

Oh,  I love coffee.  Just like you Wiz, I have mine black ... 1 during breakfast and another after lunch.  Moderation is good.  Used to drink 6 or more a day until I met my wife and she got me into green tea   :)

Couple of people have touched on sleep which is definitely critical to our health state.  During our waking moments our nerve cells are constantly active and become more or less fatigued. Sleep gives the body cells an opportunity of ridding themselves of waste and of repairing themselves.  In fact, our body has the ability to self cure any illness it is facing.  It also influence the way we eat, think and function while we are awake.  Typically for an adult, we need 7-9 hours of sleep daily.

Funny that you mentioned sleep... look at the number of posts after midnight, when all of us should be asleep!

I also like green tea but the caffeine in gt can be even higher than coffee

I used to take my coffee as latte in the mornings and sometimes later in the day too...but only at night after dinner when we have guests that want one. Black was only since my trying to get off sugars and carbs as the is a lot of sugar in milk.

So far I have dropped 1.7kg's in 5 days...I'm sure that's not going to be maintainable for long but it's going in the right direction for now. My blood sugars on the decline too so that's good too.

Normally, the initial drop is from fluid in your body...after that is taken out of the equation then we are talking about actual weight loss...

Green tea (Longgin) is good in helping to manage cholesterol

After my gym, I usually go to e hawker centre for an ABC juice. A= apple, B= beetroot, C= carrot and celery. All of these with a dash of lemon. It's very effective in detoxifying e body and slimming it down. Quite effective for me. This was a recommendation by a colleague who shared with me that her friend was downing this concoction everyday after being diagnosed with cancer. Each time she goes to e doc, e tumor kept shrinking till it was gone. She has continued to take it everyday.

PS - beetroot on its own is near impossible to drink.

I was with you until the last sentence the juice made her cancer tumour go away! If that was the case don't you think people will be selling the stuff for millions as the latest cancer cure and it will be global headlines? There is no quick fix for cancer.....

Have to agree on the cancer to some xtent...while I doubt you can rid yourself of some cancers, for sure lifestyle and diet will definitely help.

My wife had RCC and lost a kidney about 12 years ago...I think was about 4 years ago had a relapse but in her lymph nodes...still classed as RCC. This time she had much better treatment as there was lots of progress made. Oral chemo was much less impactful and also she had a course of 7 weeks 5 days a week Tomotherapy which Mt E has/had I think the only one is asia...bar japan and maybe oz. That maybe changed now. Its a really cool targeted high dose treatment based on pinpoint accurate CAT scan assisted. Used when the organs around the tumour are sensitive. Ideal for throat and nasal, brain and other locations like close to spine etc. Not cheap for the Tomo...$25K back then .. but so far so good.

Remember Prof Chao? The Pathology guy?
Well he ate well, drank well, and died in his sleep in his 60s... that's a good way to go... his son, sadly didn't fair so well... he succumbed to SARS...

It is not necessary that green tea has a higher content of caffeine than coffee.  If you brew green tea, only steep in hot boiling water for a minute.  This method gets you all the anti oxidant and nutrients from the tea leave without much caffeine.  This is according to my wife who practices tea culture.

Good that you are losing weight minus sugar in your coffee.  However, do watch your carb intake, which is the main culprit for most blood sugar spike.  Try complex carb like brown rice and whole grain.  Cheers.
