Old news. what happened to you Farkers? You used to be on top of things. I saw this 3 days ago on network TV.

It's because their stomachs are too full of coffee to shove down another 14 Twinkies.

"They found people participants who drank an additional cup of coffee each day had a slightly lower risk for type 2 diabetes."

Plus you burn off calories twitching and fidgeting.

Duh. It drives down your blood sugar. That's how I ended up with hypoglycemia so many years ago, when I was drinking around 10 cups a day to keep up with my work schedule. Thankfully no problems in the meantime though.

Hmmm, appetite suppressor suppresses your urge for that second Cinnabon. Years down the road, that's potentially thousands of uneaten Cinnabons.

So yay? I drink a minimum of 4 cups a day during the work week, and slack off (without withdrawl syndrome) on the weekends. I don't add milk, cream, or sugar. I think I only drink coffee because of the taste. It does nothing to keep me awake or anything like that.

/type II happens to run in the family
//is lazy and uses a Keurig and drinks the flavoured k-cups, doesn't care about the chemicals
///will only add cream and sugar to coffee if that cream and sugar happens to be an alcoholic beverage
 
2014-04-26 02:10:19 PM  
so one extra cup slightly lowers the risk.  Does an extra pot lower it drastically?  Since I only drink black coffee double bonus?

So there is a downside to not getting diabetes.

From my experience it'll make you shiat your calories straight back out. Which I guess would keep you off the insulin rollercoaster.

Didn't work for me and I've always had my coffee black.

/Damn you, dad!
 
2014-04-26 02:17:49 PM  
The kind of people I know who have more than one cup of coffee are usually quite active - being active helps keep weight down. Coffee can suppress the appetite too. So what the hell kind of correlation is made? Only the best kind: a spurious one. How about this: watching your caloric intake, and exercising will inhibit the onset of type II diabetes. Ric Romero is really needed here...
 
2014-04-26 02:22:30 PM  
I'm willing to bet that the results are skewed on account of soft drink drinkers (soft drinkers? soft drunks?) making up for the increase in diabetes. As someone stated earlier, caffeine addiction is a hell of a thing. Caffeine addicts who drink coffee just consume less sugar than a caffeine addict with soft drinks.
 
2014-04-26 02:28:54 PM  
I drink about a pot of coffee a day and I'm pre-diabetic, so this study is complete bullshiat.

/neglects to mention the 60 oz. of Coca Cola I drink on the average day
 
2014-04-26 02:43:09 PM  
Gave up the 2 tsp of sugar in my coffee a year ago, worried about the extra sugar intake. Probably making up for it in other foods..

/drinking stout beer made it easier to switch to black coffee.

Sanguine Dawn:  Caffeine addicts who drink coffee just consume less sugar than a caffeine addict with soft drinks.

Given that a 12oz can of Coke has something like 12 tsp of sugar (or the equivalent in HCFS) then yeah. I like sweet coffee, 2-3 tsp ain't that unusual in an 8oz mug (I just measured how much the mug I'm using holds), but any more than that and it's just too damn sweet. And yes, the more coffee I drink the less sweet I make it.

Of course I'm still chubby because I eat like a pig, but unlike one girlfe in the '90s I don't put on 20# a month by guzzling 2 liter bottles. My calories come mostly from fat, like any good cannibal.

Sugar in coffee turns it into some kind of sweet drink that isn't coffee.
Now, for those who take it black maybe a bit of sugar is good.
I take it with milk and I find that milk is sweet enough to take the bitter edge off.
 
2014-04-26 02:54:03 PM  
I hope it works. I drink a pot of coffee black. I also stuff my face with bon-bons. Do they cancel out?

How much coffee is "an additional cup"?

Maybe it works on the same principal as weed. We overload our systems with sugars and fats etc. and our bodies adapt to the new intake. Maybe moderation isn't the key.

Maybe it's you exercise and health freaks that mess up the adaptation because you send your bodies a reset signal when you are in the middle of patching your OS. You need to commit and let the update complete.

/Maybe it's the coffee and weed talking.

There is no artificial sweetener that has yet been developed that doesn't have an absolutely horrible taste, smell, and aftertaste.

I have no inherent philosophical problem with eating artificial sweetners, after all, ALL food is chemicals, no matter if it's from a lab or grown in your backyard.

But for some reason, sweet things that aren't sugars and also don't taste nasty just don't seem to be possible.

Stevia is a plant, so it's technically not artificial.

(I agree with your point, though)

I once tried stevia as well, but then the walls started melting and I couldn't stop laughing.

Turns out "stevia" and "salvia" are two different things.

I was thinking more along the lines of the article not mentioning whether they had controlled for people drinking coffee in lieu of a sugary, caffeinated beverage but this works too.

There's a Vietnamese bakery across the street from my work...iced Vietnamese coffee is VERY addictive.  They sell Bánh mì there too...if you ever find a good shop for Bánh mìyou're in heaven.  Serioulsy it's like $2.50 for a sandwich that kicks Subway's ass any day.

I usually take mine black (especially when I'm just making single servings with my AeroPress) but if the coffee's been sitting in a carafe somewhere long enough for it to develop church-basement levels of bitterness and acidity, I have to adulterate it with some milk or cream.

/I do, however, like a sweet drink now and then, just as a special treat.

An extra cup of coffee may help if is keeping your weight down.

If there is a chill in the air the extra cup of coffee may help dehydrate you and give you cramps in the night.

If you've got to much sugar in your system you could be up several times in the night to pee as your body tries to flush it out. If you've been drinking coffee you may already be dehydrated to start with.

Then as you wake up with leg cramps and are hopping around trying to streatch it out the only thing an extra cup of that is going to do you any good is another cup of water.
