Spending money on making yourself UNhealthy…

Spending money on making yourself UNhealthy…STOP!

So how many of you grab one of these in the morning on your way to work or on the school run or just simply to start your day?  Do you just have the one or is it not until the third before you begin to feel human??  Did you ever think of adding up the price of your regular takeaway coffee each week??

An average coffee-to-go at any filling station is €1.80 a cup, if you had two of these Monday to Friday that’s a weekly cost of €18!  Do you drink even more than that a day?  Do you add syrups, cream, sugar? Do the pastries and bars strategically placed by the coffee machine lure you into making you feel ‘Well I should really eat something..?’  And that’s just a filling station, what if you “pop” in and sit down for a quick coffee and it’s upwards of €2 per drink. Starts adding up right?

What if I told you that for a mere €1 per day you could feel more alive than any cup of coffee could make you feel and full of more energy and vitality than you thought possible? (more on that in a minute).

Did you realise that high consumption of unfiltered coffee (boiled or espresso) has been associated with mild elevations in cholesterol levels. And some studies found that two or more cups of coffee a day can increase the risk of heart disease in people with a specific — and fairly common — genetic mutation that slows the breakdown of caffeine in the body.  So, how quickly you metabolize coffee may affect your health risk.  Heavy coffee drinkers may have difficulty getting enough minerals in their diet, even if they eat mineral rich foods or take supplements. Not to mention excessive caffeine intake can constrict the blood vessels and increase your blood pressure

Keep in mind that other beverages, such as milk and some fruit juices, contain nutrients that coffee does not. Also, adding cream and sugar to your coffee adds more fat and calories. Some coffee drinks contain more than 500 calories.  All of these fat filled coffees are adding inches to your waist whilst making your wallet super light!!

So if I cut down on my coffee intake, how do I get healthy I hear you ask?  Well for less than the price of a regular coffee a day you can purchase 12 months of gym membership at Ozone.  This membership comes with a great personalised program to get you started on the road to a healthier lifestyle and the need for coffee to make you feel alive will be no more!
