Do be careful of caffeine overdose though... more than 3.5mg/KG bodyweight could cause your lower esophageal sphincter (LES) to decrease in basal LES pressure and distal esophageal contraction, which is known to promote the reflux of gastric contents up into the esophagus.
I drank about 4 cups a day when I had my first kid to battle the fatigue and sleepless nights, it got worse after a year or two, and has been giving me GERD problems ever since.
I had to lower my dosage to 0.5-1 cuppa a day now
Haha ok let me clarify. 4 lattes per day between myself and the wife, 1 each in the early morning before I leave for work and late afternoon after I come back. So in general two cuppas per day per person.
I don't pay attention as much about the caffeine intake, more so on the milk intake as someone else mentioned. Since I love overdosing my lattes, that's something like 220ml of milk per day for me alone, not helping in my aim to reduce sugar/fat intake...
