The Real Truth About Coffee and Weight Loss

You might rely on coffee only to wake you up in the morning and start your day. That’s what the rest of the world does to function. Just notice what happens when your workplace coffeemaker breaks to see what happens when people are deprived of their morning coffee!

But coffee has benefits beyond being your go-to morning stimulant.

Studies show coffee lowers your risk of developing diseases such as Parkinson’s disease, type 2 diabetes, and liver disease. It also improves cognitive function and reduces symptoms of depression. Part of its healing effects might be derived from polyphenols which, like with red wine, provide numerous antioxidants and an anti-inflammatory effect.

Now, research is building around coffee and weight loss. Let’s take a look at a few of those studies and the benefits of coffee they show.

Benefits of Coffee for Weight Loss

Studies show that coffee stimulates your metabolism. Your metabolism increases significantly in the three hours after drinking coffee. If you work out during that same time frame, your body will burn more fat. So, if you want to reap the most benefits, make sure to work out within 1-3 hours of drinking coffee.
