Two cups of coffee a day, is it OK?

I love coffee. I tried to restrict myself drinking a cup a day. However, how hard I try, I ended up with two, one in the morning and another cup in the evening. Do you have similar problems? I wonder if it is OK?

I also wonder sometimes about that cause I've been drinking 3 to 4 cups of coffee a day. My parents are restricting me to only a cup, but I can't help it. It's a part of my everyday routine. Well, may be I'll try to lower it down to 2 cause it doesn't hurt when listening to other people's advice.

Two cups of coffee is nothing. I used to drink 4 cups of coffee. Of course too much of anything is not good - so now I'm down to two cups or one cup, if I really wanna be good. But mostly two cups. Like I said, you're still in the moderation period. So don't worry about it. Just enjoy the two cups that you get! =)

yes. up to four is fine. it also has anti oxidants and helps prevent heart disease, some forms of cancer & the various benefits from caffeine itself. Oprah had it on her show she said up to 4 cups is fine but no more than that.Its really weird coz i get headaches when im not having at least 3 coffees a day, because my body is actually looking for the caffeine.

Welcome to Mylot sarinahahmad. You have joined a good site and I am sure you will spend good time here. Drinking two cups of coffee is quite normal. There is nothing wrong in it. Why do you feel for it?

Yes, it is ok. More is too much for you all. I can't have a coffee in the evenings.

I would say two cups of coffee is just fine. You cannot believe anything they say anymore about the coffee. One year, coffee is good for you, the next year you are supposed to stay away from it. It's like chocolate. I say yes...2 cups is just fine. I love coffee. I drink 2 cups a day. Sometimes 3 if it's a really bad day. I know people that drink a pot of coffee a day!!!
