There is some debate about the use of coffee on the Zone. There is quite a lot of evidence to support the fact that caffeine raises insulin levels in the body. Just how much caffeine causes this effect is at the heart of this debate. Sodas and sugary drinks with caffeine are definate no-no, but how about a cup of black coffee? Most of the research I have found states that having one cup of coffee or caffeinated tea per day will have little overall effect on your insulin levels. I am personally of the belief that my one morning cup of coffee does more to help than hurt me. I would love to hear your feedback on this subject! Post thoughts to comments.
