    How much coffee is best for improving productivity?

    If I drink some coffee my mind seems to work faster even more clearly and I get more done, but if I drink too much I get distracted and can't concentrate. I'd really like to learn how to get the right balance. Does anyone have any tips?

    Personally, I'm a heavy coffee drinker, so bear that in mind when factoring in my response. 2 cups (standard mugs) usually gets my brain to a state of useful funtionality.

      That sounds about right. I think I may have actually just finished my third cup when I posted this question, and I was starting to go a bit ADHD - but then I'd had a couple of cups of tea beforehand too, which also have some caffeine.

    I love coffee.  I admit it, I used to drink a pot full almost daily.  Flavored, with cream, was my favorite.  But it took a toll on my health.  I used to tell myself it's good for us.  Coffee can't really hurt us. 

    I recently stopped drinking coffee.  No one who knows me would actually believe that if they didn't see it because I was such an avid coffee drinker.  But my doctor told me I would continue to have worsening health if I kept drinking it.  He suggested I switch to tea. 

    After the withdrawal stage (which came with headaches), and elimination of gluten and soy products from my diet, I have amazing energy.  I've lost weight.  I don't get distracted, fog brain, memory loss....and I'm healthier.  I've stopped taking my acid reflux meds! I also walk daily now. 

    So in my opinion, based on what I've tried that's worked, I stopped all together and that's the only thing that helped my health, mind, energy and productivity improve.

      Thanks for sharing your story, I'm happy you've had such a positive result from cutting it out, but I'm not quite ready to give it up myself.
