I've read countless testimonies about caffeine being linked to arthritic pain.

Just arthritic pain or other joint pain?

Man my knees are aching this morning.

I just signed up with a coffee-of-the-week club, too.


Probably both but I don't remember specifically.

I'm certainly no expert on the subject. What I always tell poeple is to experiment and try going without a food for a month or 2 and see what the results are. Research and digging on the internet/books/magazines will help as well.

You may be able to get away with a moderate amount of coffee.

Different poeple sometimes have different results.

3 years ago, I added 2 cups of coffee back into my diet. Then just last year, I started feeling the same sharp pains back into my heals. I had grown accustomed to my 2 cups and wanted to keep it that way. The pains got worse, to the point it affected my training. So I cut out the coffee and walla! No more heal pains after abstaining for just 2 weeks. No other changes in diet or training had occurred and the pains have not returned. So the caffeine must have been the contributing factor.
