Can I Drink Coffee While On The Master Cleanse Diet
Sure: There's no science to this particular fad. I suspect that whoever made up this mix of lemonade, maple syrup and pepper did it as a cruel prank. It won't remove toxins -- your body handles these itself. You'll lose weight only because it's so nasty. Why not get serious about exercise and fitness? This will actually make you feel good, keep you healthy and lean, and you might meet good friends. ...Read more
Refers to all the physical matter humans (like all living creatures) must take in on a recurring basis; only partially for energy. Like all life on planet humans are open systems which keep tearing down their structure & require intake of atoms/molecules from which to rebuild their structure. Intestinal lining cells replaced ~every 3 days. CaPO4 in bones ~every 6 years, ...Read more

Why avoid coffee?:
There is no need for people on a diet to avoid coffee. The caffeine can suppress appetite and stimulate metabolism. You might not want to add much cream or sugar. Black coffee has about 2 calories per cup.
Organic is the healthiest. Consider stevia as a safe non-caloric sweetener.
Of course tea, either herbal, green or black and water are good alternatives. ...Read more
Not coffee itself: Caffeine actually has been in the news quite a bit as of late because of some benefitial health benefits such as reducing diabetes, liver cancer, and parkinson's disease etc...It also has high antioxidant content and thus may have other health benefits. Unfiltered coffe may raise cholesterol a bit, but not filtered one. It is the condiments we add to coffee that have negative effects. Good luck. ...Read more

I would advise you with all of my experience to avoid anything given to you online until you get your examination and full medical evaluation in person! ...Read more
Started exercising with DASH diet but still smoking and drinking alcohol and lots of coffee (tried quitting but can't) BP still slightly high. Meds?
Not certain what you: Are asking. If you want to know if medications are indicated then the answer is no provided you can make appropriate life style choices. Perhaps some counseling to help you make these choices would be more beneficial in the long run than medications for your hypertension. I don't recall cigarettes, alcohol and excessive coffee being on the DASH diet. ...Read more
Can food cause stained teeth? I don't drink coffee or smoke, but still think I have fairly stained teeth. Are there any types of food that cause stained teeth more than others? Maybe it's my diet..
Smoking and coffee are just two things that stain your teeth relatively quickly. Tea and red wine are two others.
Teeth will darken and stain naturally from all the foods you eat over time. Talk to your dentist about a simple whitening procedure and add a more youthful appearance for a lot less than any other cosmetic procedure. ...Read more
When to worry about consistent headache (temple) (48 hrs). New diet 1200 calories, healthy. Drinking lots of water. Off lots of coffee for 2 months.
Low blood sugar?: 1200 calories is less than most adults' basal metabolic rate, thus low blood sugar could cause this headache. Caffeine withdrawal usually occurs within 6-24 hours of quitting it, so 2 months is too far out for that explanation. Bruxism (teeth grinding), sleep apnea, stress, or other causes of sleep deprivation could also present like this. Talk with your neurologist to get a definitive answer. ...Read more

I received gallbladder surgery 4 days ago and my doctor said I could resume a normal diet. Can I drink coffee, soda, tea, and eat chocolate & hamburgs?
That's fine.: There's no reason why you couldn't have black coffee while on blood thinners. And there's no reason why you couldn't add milk or natural sugar to your coffee. As far as artificial sweeteners, I'm not sure that there potential effect on blood thinners have ever been investigated, so I would avoid them. Stick with coffee, milk and sugar. ...Read more
It depends...: It depends on the indication for atenolol. If atenelol has been prescribed as an antiarrhythmic medication to prevent fast, irregular heart beats, one should not be drinking caffeinated beverages which can provoke tachyarrhythmias. If atenolol has been prescribed as an antihypertensive medication (to lower blood pressure), or after a heart attack, coffee may be less risky. Check with your doctor. ...Read more

The fancy ones do.: A regular cup of black coffee only has about ten calories. But you can accumulate several hundred calories in a latte or other fancy coffee drink, with all the heavy cream and whole milk and flavoring syrups. Stick to plain coffee with perhaps 2% milk or some flavored creamer - not a lot, just to taste. ...Read more
