Is Coffee Healthy? Coffee vs Tea

Food Wars: Coffee vs Tea

My Live Lean TV viewers asked for my thoughts on coffee and tea. Is there another food or drink that more people are passionate about than coffee? Well maybe al-co-ma-hol but at least most people are clear on the side effects of the fun juice.

It’s true, coffee consumption is way up there. It’s typically the first thing people go for in the morning to kickstart their day. Of course, that’s the caffeine talking.


People often overlook the overall health benefits of coffee and stop short based on the drawbacks of over consumption of caffeine (that’s a lot of “over” pre-fixes in one sentence).

In this episode of Food Wars we’ll explore the following:

1. Health benefits of coffee: including it’s antioxidant benefit and it’s role in realizing fatty acids from your andipose tissue (that’s the fat tissue you love to hate).

2. Coffee side effects: including it’s role in decreasing insulin resistance and how you can help minimize its effect.

3. Tea benefits: how you can choose the right tea for you based on caffeine content, antioxidant benefits, and minimizing the dreaded teeth stains. Also how many cups a day do you need for maximum antioxidant benefit?

NOTE: A few comments on my video have come up saying coffee dehydrates you. Research that I’ve looked at says otherwise.

  1. It’s in reality a great and helpful piece of information. I am happy that you just shared this useful info with us. Please stay us up to date like this. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Good info! I rarely drink either…I usually take a Super B Complex w/pantothenic acid for energy instead of too much caffeine..if I drink anything it’s Chai in the fall 🙂

  3. Nice video. I read about coffee’s dehydrating factor. But I am an honest believer in what we learn today will be changed tomorrow. Moderation is key. Now important things, coffee and tea consumption. Yes I drink both daily about 16oz of green tea a day, 20 oz of coffee with a little skim milk and more than my fair share of water. I love both coffee and tea and refuse to give up either or modify my habit . 😉
