Topic: OT: Benefits of Coffee, Was: It's been grand (9 msgs / 431 lines)
1) From: Lynne
Oh, I agree with you there, Aaron. While there are so many warnings out
there advising people not to drink coffee, there are many studies that show
the benefits - and lets not forget that they use the standard crap that most
people *think* is real coffee - imagine doing a study with the great beans
we get? Man, that stuff out there would kill anyone!
I wasn't even aware, but I've actually been skipping meals. On the surface,
that doesn't sound bad, since I still need to lose more weight (I really
lost quite a bit when I went through my fiasco move to the Apartment From
Hell - combination of no money at all, stress and the stairs for that second
floor apartment). But in reality it's better to eat a small, healthy meal
than skip one entirely. Somehow it doesn't bother me to go without eating
all day,  but I know it throws the metabolism out of whack - that's what
I've been doing. I end up eating too much at supper, also - which also has
been getting later, and later, lots of time just because I forget to
eat/cook. Plan to get lots of fruit & veggies I can eat raw, so I won't
continue to do this...
Having two culinary-challenged sons living with me doesn't help matters... I
sometimes wonder if they'll starve - or end up living off of Cheetos & ramen
soups - when they finally move out...
It fills the stomach,
<Snip>
Yes, and also, the flavor of my homeroast stays with me for hours
afterwards.

Continuing the OT,
Benefits of Coffee, Was: It's been grand,
Lynne,
I'm really on the same page with you, I love my morning cup but I have found
myself not eating on a regular basis and not eating the famous "fruits and
veggies" that help with digestion. What makes it so hard is having two young
sons makes it even more challenging.
If you can stay on track, try to eat better meals on a regular or more less
regular schedule, not too late at night, no too large portions, etc etc. I
think your boys will follow. I say this because I'm having the same diet
problem.
If there is a bottom line here it's that good coffee won't get you but our
eating habits or lack of, will.
It's a complex subject but in general we humans have a lot in common when it
comes to what we eat.
I think I'll go make some oat meal.
Best wishes Lynne,
JoeR

That's the life- my steel cut oats are cut by the steel blades in the
blender. Been gonna roast 'em first before I cook them up. Love that
Scottish oatmeal or Welsh porridge. Today's the day!
Cheers -RayO, aka Opa!

(Just finished the last of my homemade granola.. )
Well, my sons are 24 & 25 (how did that ever happen? they were babies, like,
yesterday..) My 25 yr old was on his own for three yrs, but somehow, after
he moved back.. well, I guess it's too easy to let Mom do the cooking. As
for the other son - he claims he's dangerous in the kitchen, and frankly,
he's proved it. His idea of vegetables are potatoes, spinach and corn. My
daughter has given me ideas on how to sneak the spinach into his food (hey,
if he's hungry enough...) because she's genuinely concerned about his awful
eating habits.
You would think that with two vegetarian sisters & all the creative meals I
prepared those days, he would have grown up with a *little *better eating
habits... well, no one in my family likes greasy food, so that says
something. And they are all concerned about my health - I was eating all raw
fruits and veggies (actually, I didn't stop drinking my coffee then, so I
guess it wasn't totally raw), and I felt great back then. He's even told me
that he wishes I'd do that again... and I might, since I seemed to get rid
of the pain that returned - with a vengeance - now.

Mike,
Ummmm now I'm hungry. Have you thought of teaching a cooking class in your
spare time. <];^)
I tried to make an extra large wink. I know how much time you don't have at
the moment. I have seen your culinary skills though and would pay to learn a
couple. Maybe in the future.

Have only one son (age 24 too) and no daughters--he is a senior at a  
local fine-arts university and prefers to live at home with us. I know  
it's irrational of me (at his age, I had been married for four years  
and living three thousand miles from the "nest"), but I'm hoping he  
stays home till he gets married or moves in with a serious girlfriend.  
I'm not ready to let my baby go.  His field is improv comedy, and  
Chicago is the center of that universe, but he is considering getting  
an MFA in theater or an MA in creative writing if he is not working  
steadily as an actor, writer or production assistant by the time he's  
been out of school a year; we're hoping he choses Northwestern, DePaul  
or N.E. IL U. (Columbia College, from which he's getting his BFA in  
May, inexplicably does not offer an Master's in drama)--but dreading  
his getting his own place.
Between him and his dad, they go through a pound and a half of my  
homeroast a week. (At home, I rarely drink anything but espresso or  
espresso drinks any more, but they're drip devotees).

The caffine can end up causing a small raise in blood glucose.  When
it falls, it can end up making you crave sweets ( carbs ).  As long as
you watch yourself with your craving and you don't eat a bunch of
carbs following your coffee (within about 90mins to 2 hours you have
to watch it), your proboly fine.

Eat a little fat or protein with a little bit of low-sugar or less-or- 
un-refined carbs (e.g., a tiny piece of dark chocolate, or butter or  
cheese on a piece of wholegrain bread or toast) and you shouldn't get  
the rise in blood glucose (or the insulin spike that follows and makes  
you hypoglycemic, thus craving more carbs).
