I've been drinking coffee most of my life, first thing I look for in the morning. I've never spent time on breakfast, just a couple of cups of java and I'm all set until lunch time. Is it the caffeine that keeps me from feeling hungry in the mornings? I'm sure the caffeine has something to do with my lean physique , must be a metabolism booster? I've recommended trying coffee each morning to my sister, as she's always been a bit overweight (said coffee irritates her stomach). Hmmmmm.
