    Not 'some people' again. If you're coffee is black and unsweetened it's more or less just water. However, if it's a Starbucks special with cream, flavouring and so on it can easily be 400-800 calories or more. In which case you'd be getting 5 x 400 kcals easy (2000 kcals).

    mobster is exactly right

    if you drink starbucks everyday and order those $8 coffees you are screwing yourself

    plain coffee or tea will not cause weight gain. they have virtually 0 calories! but if you start drenching it will cream, milk, sugar, frosting, etc. you are suddenly at 600 calories which some starbucks drinks have

    Re: how many coffee cups a day

    An 8oz cup of coffee contains roughly 100mg of caffeine. The RDA of caffeine is to consume no more then 400mg of caffeine per day. Even that amount is pushing it in my opinion.

    Caffeine is fine in moderation but abusing it will raise cortisol levels and lead to adrenal fatigue. I personally feel that all these mega dosed stimulant pre workouts do more harm then good.

    I would limit your coffee consumption to 1-2 regular cups of coffee per day. Drink decaf after that.

    I think 3 or less is a good amount. That is kind of where I end up. I will be at the higher end on days where I really need energy and am going to train.
