Some things you should do are as follows:

1. Note the dose and get to know your body.

There is no definite measure for the dose of coffee may be consumed. However, most studies reveal that drinking 300 mg of caffeine (about 1 to 3 cups of coffee a day) does not give negative effects on most healthy people.

However, everyone has their own limits on the consumption of caffeine. Most people can consume 2 cups of coffee a day without any problems. But there is also experiencing the ill effects despite drinking less. Someone told me after drinking a cup of coffee becomes difficult to sleep through the night, otherwise there is sound asleep after drinking coffee. So please to understand, the best way is to listen to your own body's response!

2. Recognize the "Effect" of Coffee what you drink

while sipping coffee actually feels good, but often followed by guilt. Recognize the danger signals of coffee so we know when to stop drinking coffee. Danger signals include: restlessness, palpitations, sleep disturbances and mood disorders (eg, irritability).

A coffee drinkers who stopped drinking coffee may experience "caffeine withdrawal" that characterized by throbbing headaches, but these symptoms will disappear after 24-48 hours or get a new dose of caffeine.

3. Recognize Caffeine Content

After knowing the dose and the response of the body, it helps us to know the content of caffeine in products that often we consume. In order not to copy the recommended dose has been reached, yet we still consume other products that contain caffeine, so feel the bad effects of coffee. Some other products that contain caffeine should be considered such as: soft drinks, coffee candy, tea, chocolate, headache medicine.

Method of processing (roasting and brewing) also affects the content of caffeine in coffee. For example, a study shows, a cup of coffee at Starbucks contains an average of 259 mg of caffeine compared to coffee with the type and size of the same cup at Dunkin Donuts, which only contains 149 mg of caffeine.

From other studies, decaf coffee (coffee without caffeine) good to those who are obese because it can raise HDL ("good" cholesterol) by about 50%. Whereas in those who are not obese can actually lower the HDL cholesterol that can increase the risk of heart disease.

4. Coffee Mix

According to the study, 5mg calcium is lost for every 6 ounces of coffee we consume. Therefore, try to combine the occasional coffee with a few tablespoons of milk. In addition to healthier, you can also feel the other varieties of coffee right??

Many say the coffee and cigarettes are a true friend, but it's wrong. Smoking can damage the enjoyment of coffee. Therefore, the true coffee connoisseurs will not smoke.

Note: too much coffee just is not healthy, what if the coffee + cigarettes?

5. Periodic check-ups and groups "Anti-Coffee"

Perform periodic checks on health, in this case are a measure of blood pressure. The earlier known hypertension, so the better for further management and treatment.

There is some 'class' which is not recommended to drink coffee. The following groups are advised to avoid the coffee: pregnant women, children, the elderly, people with heart and blood vessel disease (eg hypertension). Well, if you already belong to this group, forget the coffee!If you want to be healthy but still want to enjoy a cup of coffee, make sure you select a low-acid coffee black. Low acid coffee is on Kopi Luwak or organic coffee. Further information about the various aspects of coffee can be read on a variety of articles in this blog:
