Don’t abstain from your favourite foods - try consuming in moderation to mix pleasure with health benefits
The Truth: Coffee is commonly associated with caffeine, which in large doses can have some unpleasant side effects such as causing anxiety, irritability and mild dehydration. However, a moderate amount of coffee (up to 4-5 cups consumed throughout the day) is perfectly safe and can be positively beneficial due to the large amounts of antioxidants it contains which help keep the body's cells healthy.
How much can I drink? You can drink up to 4-5 cups a day, though if you have a lower caffeine tolerance stick to 1-2 cups.
Discover seven more reasons why you should stick with your coffee fix.

I have always beleived that a balanced diet is the best way to go.
If you deprive yourself of things that you are craving, will result in that you just want it more and you might even binge on that specific food. While if you allow yourself to eat it in moderation, you will feel more satisfied.
