212: Is Coffee Good For You? Sincere Hogan

Is coffee good for you? Do you need your coffee in the morning before you can do anything else? Are you dependent on coffee? Is that a problem?

Those are just a few of the topics I’m getting into on this episode of Sincere Hogan. Coffee is a staple of the modern diet, and really modern culture in general. While some people are addicted to it, and there is always that danger, it is also important to understand that there are incredible benefits to coffee as well.

At the end of the day, everyone is different, and a substance like coffee will affect everyone differently. One of the most important things for you to do is to track the results from anything you eat and drink. Learn about both the good and the bad of coffee, but then track its influence on you, and make your own decisions from that information!
