How much coffee is too much coffee?!

Question: i'm almost hittin' a whole pot these days

Answers: i'm almost hittin' a whole pot these days

"Though moderate caffeine intake isn't likely to cause harm, too much can noticeably affect your health. Heavy daily caffeine use — more than 500 to 600 mg a day, or about four to seven cups of coffee — can cause:
* Restlessness
* Anxiety
* Irritability
* Muscle tremors
* Sleeplessness
* Headaches
* Nausea, diarrhea or other gastrointestinal problems
* Abnormal heart rhythms"

You may not notice the full effect of these problems, since your system is so acclimated to the caffeine. The more you drink, the more hooked on caffeine you can become, and you'll have to drink even more of it to get the "hit" you crave. You should try to cut back to three or four 8-oz. servings per day over time. An easy way to do this would be to substitute decaf or tea for some of your beverage servings, or use a blend of caffeinated/decaf grounds in your coffeemaker. Drink more water, too.

Coffee doesn't dehydrate you, by the way. That's been discredited: "There is no evidence that consumption of caffeinated beverages causes a fluid-electrolyte imbalance that is detrimental to health or exercise performance."

8 should be the limit. So, I think you're okay.

Coffee dehydrates. Basically having one cup of coffee is the equivalent of minus 4 cups of water.
You should have it in moderation.

i think that 4 REALLY big cups/ mugs shoold be efficient. besides get more sleep and you won't need that much.

hahahaha too much coffee there is no such thing..or at least in my world!

Too much is when it doesn′t taste any more. I′d say over 4 big cups.

Anything over 2 cups will raise your blood pressure 20 points.

i think drinking it every day and even only once a day is still too much.
