    Starbucks coffee

    so i am not much of a coffee drinker, the odd latte once, max twice a week ,if even that much.

    my question is how many calories are in a tall and/or grande starbucks latte...

    and i have heard that coffee is worse for you on a casual basis than it is every day (1-2) cups... is this true?

    i have also heard that caffeine can help you with your lifts, but since i don't sleep well i avoid as much caffeine as possible.

    and what about herbal tea?

    my understanding is that it is worse to jolt your heart with caffeine periodically, say once a week, than having a couple of cups of joe every day....

    this was something i heard about 4 mnths ago and i wanted to know if there was any truth to it

    You would be more sensitive to the stimulant effects of the caffeine, but I doubt it is going to make a difference whether you drink 1 cup of coffee everyday or 1 cup of coffee every week. Either way you will still be getting the stimulant effects, but if you only have coffee every now and then you would be more likely to notice the stimulant effects.

    i have also heard that caffeine can help you with your lifts, but since i don't sleep well i avoid as much caffeine as possible.
    Increased energy would help with your lifts.

    I am a regular starbucks customer, and a coffee feind in general.

    I drank latte's for years, until I cut earlier this year, when I switched to plain black drip, which has virtually zero calories. I've since abandoned the drip for straight espresso.

    Then again, I have a high tolerance for caffeine. I've been drinking coffee since age 11.

    My point is, caffeine isn't really bad for you IMO.
