    I can appreciate your purism for health, but you have to remember, life is to enjoy. And not to say we NEED coffee or any drug in order to enjoy life, but they can certainly add a satisfying quality if done in moderation. And I think, as you point out, this is where most people get in trouble. It’s our responsibility to determine how much is "too much". I, for example, love Tea. But I know, like coffee, if I drink too much, I crash, probably for the reasons you’ve outlined here. I also love alcohol, particularly beer. But I also know if I consume too much, it has a negative effect. The compromise is moderation. If you lightly season your food, it can result in an awesome dish, yet if overdone, it kills it.
    You love to run. I get the sense it gives you a high. Yet, many believe too much running is hard on the body. But you continue to run. Why? Because you enjoy it and do it in moderation (I assume). We’re all hard wired to enjoy different types of experiences. It’s not black and white. So I say, relax and enjoy what brings you happiness (with care).

    Whats the track title and artist at the end of this video?

  3. Wei Han on April 15, 2021 at 1:50 am

    I don’t really drink coffee. If I catch up with friends for brunch I might grab one cup every now and then. But I will never be like “oh it’s the first thing I reach in the morning” and I really don’t get when people say they can’t live without it. I mean coffee is not that tasty at all compared to many other drinks.

  4. Vergel Acopio on April 15, 2021 at 1:50 am

    Very imformative nice

  5. isaac obadia on April 15, 2021 at 1:51 am

  6. E-Z On Raw on April 15, 2021 at 1:52 am

    I really enjoy drinking black coffee with a little bit of stevia to sweeten it. I find that it aids in digestion and it always stimulates a movement or 2 or more, It also gives me great energy before my morning workout.. I like it 🙂

  7. Αβάσιμος Πρίγκιπς on April 15, 2021 at 1:52 am

    I just drink coffee because I like the taste…It never gets me more energetic or so…

  8. nomadoda on April 15, 2021 at 1:54 am

    I do drink a cup every day, but I think I’ll try giving it a break for a while.

  9. Julie Oxbøll on April 15, 2021 at 1:55 am

    I’ve liked the taste of coffee since I was very young. Now I drink 1-2 cups of coffee/cold brew almost every day, but I can go days without it too. I sleep 7-8 hours every day, which is the perfect amount of sleep for me, even without coffee i feel energized. Coffee just gives me that small extra boost 🙂

  10. Nabendu Mohabbat on April 15, 2021 at 1:56 am

    "I can’t get going until I have my cup of coffee" "I need my coffee first" words of an addict. Imagine someone saying "I’m no good until I smoke a joint" "I can’t get going until I snort a line of cocaine" "I can’t function unless I take my pill"

  11. Nikan Creative Teaching on April 15, 2021 at 1:57 am

    hey good video, two questions. have you made a video on keto diet? what about all these claimed benefits from bullet proof coffee

  12. Sephiroth Tiefenbach on April 15, 2021 at 1:59 am

    I usually drink decaf coffee because I love the taste of coffee and I’m sensitive to caffeine. I know it’s acidic and bad for my stomach, but I guess you could say I’m addicted to the taste lol. I try to only drink it on special occasion.

  13. Andrei Piatra on April 15, 2021 at 1:59 am

    Coffee isn’t the most common drug, but dairy (Casomorphin).

  14. jj shoot on April 15, 2021 at 1:59 am

    Sugar in fruits does the same thing as coffee … don’t pick on coffee … its only juice from the *coffee bean* — and its a tradition all over the world …. I have it a few days a week …and if I don’t it doesn’t matter …

  15. pAcA[A] on April 15, 2021 at 2:01 am

    I have never ever drink coffe, or smoking, i dont understand how people cant live without coffe…

  16. Reef Nasser on April 15, 2021 at 2:01 am

    It’s been nearly a year since I gave up coffee.

    Natural beard but not natural hair

  19. Ron on April 15, 2021 at 2:04 am

    Coffee is disgusting and never liked it. It is very bitter so you need a lot of sugar and milk to make it drinkable. But it is also very concentrated and it leaves you with a horrible after taste. Never liked it. Lucky me because it is very toxic for the body especially the adrenal glands. it is very exhausting for the adrenal glands because coffee promotes stress hormones like cortisol and adrenalin. Btw, they found in most coffee asbestos because the conveyor belt is made from it in countries like Africa for example. Unfortunately the whole world is drinking this shit.

  20. Lalo C on April 15, 2021 at 2:05 am

    I really enjoy the taste of coffee, but I want to avoid the caffeine. Is decaf coffee a good alternative, or does it have negative effects as well?

  21. Calm DOSE on April 15, 2021 at 2:05 am

    Excellent! Keep up the great work!

  22. Hillary for President on April 15, 2021 at 2:06 am

    White men who sleep 9 hours or more each night have a 71% greater risk of having a stroke.

    Why don’t you cut your beard??….It looks wierd

  24. Yuri Barboza on April 15, 2021 at 2:09 am

    very good ✅

  25. Slava SS on April 15, 2021 at 2:09 am

    I guess he has no family and no job? Easy to say- pls get enough sleep…. in reality no time))

  26. Frank Zap on April 15, 2021 at 2:09 am

    That tiny sip you just had would have made me peak..

  27. Jay Krupa on April 15, 2021 at 2:10 am

    Ohhhhhhh and all that sugar isn’t bahahahahahahahahhahahaha

  28. Vladimir i Richi on April 15, 2021 at 2:11 am

    I agree.

  29. E-Z On Raw on April 15, 2021 at 2:11 am

    Also, I fast daily 18-24 hrs drinking plenty of water 2Liters a day, eating a variety of plant based foods including beans in my big salad every day with lots of variety and some good fats in moderation as well as a flax oil supplement and a multi vitamin.

  30. Peter Vlčko on April 15, 2021 at 2:12 am

    tea, loose one. sort
    dragon well
    jasmine tea
    pu ehr
    gun powder
    cyelin tea
    so on.

    correctly done. couple of teapots, if you don’t have irritated bowl and colon, those make miracles with you. they are clean your body, and have a lot of health benefits such as killing pathogens, antioxidation, etc.

    tea is most common rejuvenating and curing herb used on the planet and it has reason to be that way. like everything can be misused and can be harmful to body. meditation during tea drinking period is very potent and meditation itself brings another deep relax state for body. tea should be used correctly and need to be high quality, stored in fridge in containers which do not allow air to come in because tea oxidize and losing its properties, some gaining like pu ehr is tea which mature over time and became better, but usually it is not a case and forget tea bags sort of tea which are like when you sweep bottom of the truck after you delivery proper one those are worst.

  31. A S on April 15, 2021 at 2:13 am

    Whats that song at the very start ?

  32. E-Z On Raw on April 15, 2021 at 2:13 am

    I don’t eat high carb anymore. I don’t label my diet as anything but whole plant based foods. I feel great, and I don’t worry about hitting a macro nutrient ratio either. I have eaten that way, all fruit, or raw till 4, etc but I find that eating a variety of foods is important with good fats in moderation. This is what really works for me now.. Cheers : )

  33. Craig D on April 15, 2021 at 2:15 am

    i remember when i had my first beer

  34. curandero verde on April 15, 2021 at 2:15 am

    Sugar & fructose are a drugs too…A small to medium cup of coffee (organic) a day is good for you…

  35. Earthy Green on April 15, 2021 at 2:16 am

    Soda is really addicting

  36. Gainde 113 on April 15, 2021 at 2:17 am

    You can also stick to decoffeinated coffee.

  37. Sean Byrne on April 15, 2021 at 2:18 am

    The you for being a constant advocate for the true sweeter things in life. Whenever I’m feeling shitty about something, your wisdom and self tested advice always reminds me of what it is to to be happy and human and that I don’t need to do what everybody else does in order to be successful.

  38. Morg Ellon on April 15, 2021 at 2:18 am

    After I started drinking yerba mate, coffee just seems really harsh. It doesn’t the nutrients and that sense of repleneshment I get from mate, either. I wouldn’t really recommend coffee to someone who hasn’t had it, but I would definitely recommend yerba mate. It’s probably the most important factor that contributed to my improvement in health over the past year. Mate contains caffeine and other xanthines, so it is a stimulant, but the effects are completely different from coffee, in my opinion. It has even helped me overcome, or at least greatly reduce, many other unhealthy behaviors. It simply replaced them with something more enjoyable.

  39. The Communist on April 15, 2021 at 2:21 am

    Bitter?? Put some sugar in!

  40. Tracy on April 15, 2021 at 2:22 am

    You’re stimulated everyday by the fruits u eat major sugar rush

  41. Dejan Burnik on April 15, 2021 at 2:23 am

    I don’t need coffee either! I feel best when I sleep 7 hours and I also noticed that I need far less sleep if I meditate and practice spirituality regularly.

  42. Gainde 113 on April 15, 2021 at 2:31 am

    Coffeine is a blocker of serotonin.

  43. L K on April 15, 2021 at 2:32 am

    I was thinking about this today. I see these studies about green tea being so good for you, but I’ve tried to drink it and I hate the feeling of caffeine! I know it’s a net positive, maybe I’ll live longer like the studies say if I drink green tea… but I just hate how it affects my consciousness! I can’t think as clearly and that bothers me. Sure I can bang out certain types of work but no doubt caffeine makes it harder for me to solve complex logical problems.

  44. Emanating Faucet on April 15, 2021 at 2:34 am

    Exactly. I completely agree with this & I like how you approach matters

  45. Pavel Franta on April 15, 2021 at 2:34 am

    I drink coffee, masturbate sometimes, I have a WIFI router in the same room where I sleep, I have friends who smoke weed… BUT what I really miss is drinking coffee thru that mustache !!!!! what kind of fruit should I eat?

  46. My Split Routine on April 15, 2021 at 2:35 am

    Good one thanks. I agree with you. could you please do one with the beer 🙂

  47. 福ちゃん on April 15, 2021 at 2:36 am

    Good video!
    What about green tea? I drink it daily because I like the taste and it helps me to not over eat( ´∀`)

  48. Aleks Judentum on April 15, 2021 at 2:38 am

    what about magic mushrooms(psilocybin) or LSD for example?!

  49. Mark Tassi on April 15, 2021 at 2:40 am

    I was a coffee addict for 15 years. Hard to give up. Now I’m almost never tired.
