Its official, nutritionists are now claiming that our beloved coffee may be able to help you lose weight! You consume cup after cup of that bitter black nectar at the break of dawn every day to help you get through the morning blues, but it could also be helping you to shed those few extra pounds.
Apparently, if you consume a cup of coffee every morning before breakfast every morning, it will not only boost your concentration and levels of energy, but it will also aid weight loss. This is due to the fact that your daily cup of coffee can help boost your metabolic rate, by stimulating thermogenesis, helping you in turn to burn more fat. It also happens to contain chlorogenic acid, which helps to slow down the absorption of It That Must Not Be Names (carbohydrates). It also stimulates the hormone epinephrine, which helps the body to break down fat and prevents your body from storing so much of it. So if there are any coffee vending machines at your place of work, it might be worth moving desks near it so you can drink at your will.
The caffeine in just one cup of coffee can boost calorie burning by four percent over the course of two and a half hours. Not bad for a nice cup of molten. Make sure to avoid all of the added sugars and creams in order to reap the full benefits that coffee can provide. That means that black coffee is probably your best bet.
It’s now time to burst your coffee-related bubble in terms of how far this affects you and how often you can drink the dark nectar. It goes without saying that you’re not going to reap any benefits if you are necking milky lattes, cappuccinos and triple shot Frappuccino’s with extra whipped cream and chocolate sauce (as if I even had to mention that one, right?). Fatty and sweet coffee’s like these will, of course, add more calories to your system than it will be able to burn and is therefore void when mentioning how coffee can help you lose weight. This article is, therefore, aimed at people who enjoy a steaming cup of bitter black coffee in the morning.
You should not read this article and start necking coffee’s like there is no tomorrow though. Drinking too much coffee will diminish its fat burning benefits and make you immune to its powers! You, therefore, have to drink wisely and drink enough coffee to feel the effects, but not enough that you become immune!
And you really do have to drink it first thing in the morning – otherwise the benefits are diminished.
So there you have it, if you are a massive coffee fan and fancy losing a few pounds in weight, it could be a useful little gem of knowledge if someone ever comments on your coffee obsession!
