This past Sunday I shared that I have chosen to deny myself of all forms of coffee for the next 36 days (Lent). Its one thing to stop drinking coffee because of its delicious taste but it’s a whole other ball of wax when you stop because of its harmful effects on the body.
I have come across many articles recently that say drinking coffee is a major cause of many ailments and it can possibly lead to death (so can everything else if you take too much of it!) Anyway…I came across a website “(http://www.energyfiend.com/death-by-caffeine) that allows you to choose from hundreds of drinks (not just coffee) all you have to do is enter your weight, and click “kill me”. The result shows you how many of that item it would take to bring things to an end for you.
Here were a few of my result (particularly with drinks I like):
· It would take 266 shots of espresso to put me down
· After 455 cans of diet coke I’d be pushing daisies
· It would take 603 bottles of Nestea Iced tea before I’d croak
· And finally it would take 91 Grande Americano’s from Starbucks to take me out.
So to all you Starbucks fans out there….FEAR NOT…remember this word as you order your next cup of goodness…”MODERATION”.
