I made the switch to black coffee, I've found that I've really underestimated, or actually I've overlooked a lot of the subtle flavors of black coffee. The other main reason is that I don't want to consume sugar or cream.

Just like when I started drinking beer and my friend handed me a storm king stout I hated it. But it seems like everyone who had an intellect for beer loved stouts so I eventually learned to actually taste beer and the same is happening with coffee, vegetables, and herbs as my diet is changing.

The next big thing is tasting plain cold water aka being a water connoisseur. There's actually a lot of flavor notes in those water bottles we take for granted!

I've even heard pizza restaurants ship tap water from new york city to put in their dough because they can't settle for water outside the city to make the pizza taste as good.

I believe it's also taken from the shores and springs right there.

"In 1789 during a walk, the Marquis of Lessert drank water from the Sainte Catherine spring on the land of a M. Cachat. The marquis, who was allegedly suffering from kidney and liver problems, drank the water regularly while he walked, and claimed that his health improved. Encouraged by Lessert's advocacy of the 'miraculous' water, local doctors began to prescribe it as a health remedy. In response to the growing success of the water, Mr cachat fenced off his spring and began selling the water. The first baths appeared in 1824. The name of the spring was changed from Sainte Catherine to the Cachat Source. Two years later, the Duke of Savoy gave his permission to start bottling water from the spring and in 1829 the first Société des Eaux Minérales (Mineral Water company) was founded."

Apparently on their website evian.com they say it helped cure Marquis de Lessert kidney stone.

But unfortunately - "Ever since the outbreak of the avian flu, evian water has had a difficulty marketing its products due to an unjust phonetic association. Although quite arbitrary, skeptics have been “flocking” away from the brand with so many alternatives to choose from." - The Water Connoisseur




I'll try it next time and give a review

I just like the taste...although I knew about the "miracle" cure properties....they were probably just dehydrated like everyone else is. And the walking didn't hurt either....

from the video above mia a - 1 month ago

"All this makes sense... Heart attacks are due to stress & everything negative.. If you're living a happy fulfilling loving life people don't get heart attacks.. Your emotions/thoughts are powerful. "

I apologize about the video's resolution.

be careful though



Sorry about the last video I posted, After watching the whole thing I realized they were trying to push their own filter so I edited it to this video above. This one is better and more informative yet a little more boring.

You might say I'm getting a little off topic here with water but then again it's best to know what type of water to use to make your coffee

that's a lot of coffee

"Just about everyone loves coffee, but almost no one loves coffee in the way Honore de Balzac did. He worked 16 hours a day, tossing back cup after cup of specially blended Parisian java (some sources say he could down 50 cups in a day). To overcome caffeine tolerance, he ate dry grounds, and on an empty stomach, no less, famously saying that after a mouthful of coffee beans, 'sparks shoot all the way up to the brain. Ideas quick-march into motion like battalions of a grand army....'." Adrienne Crezo

Talk about left ventricular hypertrophy (thickening of the myocardium (muscle) of the left ventricle of the heart.). I guess that's the reason I don't want to take Modafinil. I've got pretty paranoid with my health after some previous ailments.

"Caffeine has many metabolic effects. For example,

It stimulates the central nervous system.
It releases free fatty acids from adipose (fatty) tissue.
It affects the kidneys, increasing urination, which can lead to dehydration.
Caffeine is in coffee, tea, soft drinks, chocolate and some nuts. Whether high caffeine intake increases the risk of coronary heart disease is still under study.
Many studies have been done to see if there's a direct link between caffeine, coffee drinking and coronary heart disease. The results are conflicting. This may be due to the way the studies were done and confounding dietary factors. However, moderate coffee drinking (1–2 cups per day) doesn't seem to be harmful.

Caffeine-habituated individuals can experience "caffeine withdrawal" 12–24 hours after the last dose of caffeine. It resolves within 24–48 hours. The most prominent symptom is headache. They can also feel anxiety, fatigue, drowsiness and depression." - American Heart Association

I wonder what they'd say about the amounts Honore de Balzac consumes.

Anyways, I know one thing if you want to sleep at night, don't drink coffee in the afternoon - Effects can last from 8 to 14 hours.

I think it is very individualized. For example, I drink coffee throughout the day, not that much after the initial (large) jolt in the morning, but off and on at least up to about 4:00 - 5:00 PM. No problems getting to sleep.

I used to enjoy a cup at night just before going to bed -- it actually was relaxing and helped me sleep. That "shouldn't" be possible, but I have encountered other people who have told me the same thing. (But not many! )

Finally, although there is certainly such a thing as "habituation" (and it might very well actually be "addiction" ), I have recently stopped coffee entirely a couple of times for a few days at a stretch, with no "withdrawal" effects at all. On the other hand, I know someone who said that stopping coffee was the hardest thing she ever did.

So it probably is a combination of what you're used to ("habituation") plus your unique metabolism, and both of those may change over time, too.

Bob.

Someone who drinks two or three cups of coffee in the morning and no more for the day, then, would have essentially eliminated all but a good-sized sip's worth of caffeine from the system by wake-up time 24 hours later. People who keep on topping off their caffeine reserves throughout the day, however, will always have a substantial reservoir of the chemical in their bloodstreams: a prime condition for the body to redress its biochemical imbalance by boosting production of counter-caffeine chemicals. To put it briefly, coffee drinkers can't win the battle with their own biochemical natures. But in trying to, they can push the biochemical balance so far to one side that any interruption in the caffeine supply can have severe and debilitating side effects: violent headaches, uncombatable drowsiness, and frequently depression.

The problem with making flat statements of this kind is that for some people they just don't apply. "Caffeine has a tremendously wide variation in action," Regestein admits. "The people who say 'I can drink a cup of coffee right before I go to bed and go right to sleep' aren't lying." Hard biochemical research confirms the fact. Carney describes "one common strain of laboratory mouse, Jackson's Lab's SWR strain, inbred since the 1920s, who is just totally immune to the effect of caffeine: there's no dose that will excite him--not 100 milligrams per kilogram, which would be equivalent to 100 cups of coffee in a human.

"But take that mouse and breed him with another strain called CBA, who's essentially the great-great-great-grandson of the common European white mouse. The first generation of offspring will all look like the CBA mouse and show his caffeine sensitivity, which means that the caffeine resistance of the SWR mouse is genetically recessive. Then take those first-generation mice and cross them among themselves, and you get offspring spread right across a bell curve: mice who are significantly less active than the SWR mouse, who are actively depressed by caffeine in fact, all the way across the activity spectrum to mice a good three standard deviations above the activity norm, mice that are rocketing right off the walls of their cages. Caffeine sensitivity is obviously not a simple genetic either-or: at least two genes are involved, and probably more, to get that kind of result."

But though people who say they can drink coffee at any hour and still go to sleep aren't kidding, they may be kidding themselves. For one thing, their ability to go right off to sleep may just mean that their tolerance of caffeine has grown to the point where an incremental dose has no further effect.
