Drink coffee after breakfast, not before, for better metabolic control

Coffee is now the world’s most popular drink, with around two billion cups consumed every day. In the U.S. about half of the people aged 18 and over drink coffee every day, while in the U.K., according to the British Coffee Association, 80% of households buy instant coffee for in-home consumption.

A strong, black coffee to wake you up after a bad night’s sleep could impair control of blood sugar levels, according to a new study.

Research from the Centre for Nutrition, Exercise & Metabolism at the University of Bath (UK) looked at the effect of broken sleep and morning coffee across a range of different metabolic markers.

Writing in the British Journal of Nutrition the scientists show that while one night of poor sleep has limited impact on our metabolism, drinking coffee as a way to perk you up from a slumber can have a negative effect on blood glucose (sugar) control.
