Wait 1-2 Hours Before Drinking Coffee in Morning

I used to drink coffee first thing after waking up in the morning.

Then around 2014-2015, research suggested it’s better to wait at least an hour before having that first cup.

Here’s what they found.

  • Cortisol is high first thing in the morning, and you won’t really feel the effects of the caffeine.
  • It’s possible that taking caffeine at this time will result in a crash later.
  • Your body loses about 1 liter of water every night while sleeping, so hydration should be your #1 priority.

Instead of coffee…

I recommend drinking water or sparkling water.

Drinking water first thing in the morning is a killer health habit.

In Japan, it is a common recommendation and practice to drink 3-4 cups of water as soon as a person wakes up.

Being properly hydrated simply makes the body work better.

Also, with caffeine, I don’t recommend going much over 300-400mg per day.

This seems to be a good sweet spot for improved performance and alertness without overdoing it and causing energy crashes.

This gives you about 3 times to have caffeine each day.

Roughly 2 coffees and 1 Octane.

*If you wait until you feel your first sign of hunger in the morning, you get a better bang-for-your-buck from that first serving of coffee.

This will kill your hunger.

Wait another 1-2 hours and drink some Octane.

Then one more cup of coffee before your workout.

Sometimes I’ll drink Octane a couple of hours after waking up, then 2 cups of coffee later on.

The order doesn’t really matter.

It just feels great being fully hydrated with steady energy and no crash.

Then after my workout or after walking…

I’ll drink a cup of Kino Collagen mixed with yogurt or hot water.

With The Lean Stack bundle, you get both Octane and Collagen.

Water, Coffee, Octane, and Collagen Protein during the day is such a simple approach to getting lean.

All you have to worry about is dinner.

One awesome thing about drinking enough water in the morning is that your skin will improve over time with proper hydration.

Get The Lean Stack

Collagen improves skin tone and skin elasticity as well.

So not only will you get lean with The Lean Stack…

Your skin will look more vibrant.
