Although most people like to drink coffee as soon as they open their eyes, the nutritionist warns that drinking coffee in the morning on an empty stomach is very harmful. Olivia Hedlund, a nutritionist, explained that caffeine can cause major problems with the intestines and hormones.
She said that coffee is acidic and that's why you shouldn't drink it on an empty stomach. It also causes the body to go into a state of high stress. Instead, he recommends eating eggs, drinking milk, and eating berries or other fruits, including apples, and pears, before drinking your morning coffee.
Coffee is not only acidic, so it's hard to stomach in the morning, but it literally makes our body release cortisol and puts us in a stressful state, explains Hedlund. It can also cause hormonal problems such as acne. She said: "If you drink coffee first thing on an empty stomach, stop what you’re doing and listen.
You are messing with your hormones. Coffee is not only acidic, so it’s hard on our stomach in the morning, but it literally causes our bodies to go into a stress response, to shoot out cortisol, and to put us in kind of a fight or flight state."
