The best coffee for the time, the best day and the best coffee place is your luck at the weekend, so it always happens to many young people, the millenials, make appointments and then meet somewhere.

Unbelievable for them, regardless of coffee can be a fun routine in the morning, quoting the sites CNN Indonesia, June 17, that drinking coffee also has the best moment of the day that you live.

Lyndi Cohen, as someone familiar with her, a nutritionist based in Sydney, Australia, said in an interview in the Daily Mail Australia, yesterday, that it was a bad habit when you woke up and you grabbed a cup of coffee.

Ah, she did not know how it happened in such a way, that was the most delicious morning moment. Haha.

But she has an argument, she suggests to hold back a little.

"When you wake up, sometimes your cortisol is peaking."

As nutritionists say about it, the cortisol hormone or better known as the stress hormone is produced more when the body is physically or emotionally stressed. This hormone also plays a role in the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and proteins in the body to provide energy.

"Caffeine affects the production of body cortisol. If drinking coffee is the first thing you do in the morning, your body produces less cortisol and you become dependent on caffeine to encourage you to be energized."

This explanation could be the answer for those who feel addicted or need a cup of coffee to start the day, she says a better time to enjoy coffee in the middle of the morning, between 10.00 and 12.00 am.

Thus according to her opinion, because at this time, the cortisol hormone decreases.

One should end the coffee session before lunchtime, during the day, replace your coffee with herbal tea or decaffeinated beverages.

"Everyone has a different tolerance for caffeine, but for the sake of a quality night's rest, do not drink coffee six hours before you sleep, I recommend, at 2:00 is your last time for coffee."

Lyndi also said coffee has a positive effect on sports activities.

"It's true that drinking coffee before exercise can help you lift heavier weights, more sessions in one type of movement or run faster."

Caffeine can increase your metabolism by 3-11 percent, it helps you burn fat, she says.

Lyndi further advises against consuming more than 400 milligrams of coffee a day, equivalent to 2-3 cups of coffee in a café or four cups of homemade coffee.

"Keep in mind that everyone's coffee intake is different, however, try to know your coffee intake."
