    anything good or bad about taking coffee? Just wondering. Thinking about starting to drink coffee in the morning to wake me up.

    So this could be completely unrelated, BUT:

    I started taking Creatine again about 2 weeks ago, and right about the same time I started taking it, i started getting a strong headache about once a day right around where my sinuses are. I went to the doc and they perscribed me some antibiotics to take, but they arent helping. neither is any of the regular over the counter sinus stuff.

    Could it be the Creatine? I am getting plenty of water (drinking about a gallon a day), but I can't help but think it might be the creatine. I am taking 5g a day with the ON 2500 capsules. Any input? :hs:

    An early morning jog, a decent breakfast, and a nice hot shower wakes me up better than any amount of coffee ever could

    its a strong source of caffeine. Read up on the pros and cons of caffeine if you are really concerned.

    I dont stress myself out over something like coffee, start every day with it.

    i think coffee is great. just make sure your not taking in a ton of calories in the cream and sugar, that stuff adds up.

    yes im sure nothing you ingest is treated with any kind of chemicals because you of all people manage to bypass every kind of processed food available and live a completely healthy and natural lifestyle devoid of interference from evil corporations and tainted ingestables.

    BEAST MODE NGR.

    I interchanged that and RAPE FACE as my phrase of the day quite often saturday night.

    There may have been alcohol involved.

    Coffee doesn't hold a candle to morning cardio. I feel great after morning cardio. :bowdown:

    Although, sometimes when I'm kinda tired, I drink a cup of black coffee before a afternoon workout.

    i average 3 - 4 cups of dutch stuff a day (black), great energy boost for work out, altho abuse can lead to a high heart rate and bp level... sometimes certain protein brands go good with coffee. think i drank a liter of it once in once sitting, stew leonards chocolate french vanilla

    That isn't coffee, that's a soft drink. Black espresso, with optional sugar or macchiatto foam.
