Q: How much caffeine should I have in a day and when is the best time to have it?

Studies have shown that it is safe to have caffeine in moderation. For the average adult this is ≤400mg/day (6mg/kg body weight) or 750mL of coffee/1L of black tea. During pregnancy or lactation this is ≤300mg/day or 500mL coffee/750mL tea. For children and adolescents this is ≤2.5mg/kg body weight. Too much caffeine beyond these levels can result in restlessness, anxiety, irritability, muscle tremor, sleep disturbance, headache, increased urine production, abnormal heart rate, sensory disturbances, nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, seizure, hallucinations, stroke and even death. If you are consuming more than the recommended amount, gradually reducing your caffeine intake can prevent withdrawal

How hungry are you on a scale from 1 to 10?

Have regular meals to keep yourself out of the Danger Zone (1-2 and 7-10) where people tend to make poorer food choices and eat more than they intended to. To achieve or maintain a healthy weight keep within the Ideal Zone (3-6) from the beginning signs of physical hunger to feeling satisfied. In our daily busy schedules and influences from the surrounding environment we often lose sight of our hunger signals and eat for other reasons apart from physical hunger. Stay in touch with your body by using the hunger scale from the Queensland Government.
