It may be surprising to some, but coffee can be a great way to help lose weight. Why? A couple of reasons, but first I’d like to preface by saying how annoyingly difficult it can be to actually lose weight, losing weight requires a lot of hard work that a lot of people are simply not ready for. But surprisingly, coffee can help you in this by increasing metabolism, reducing appetite and increasing your energy during the day to help you feel good enough to exercise.
The first way coffee helps you is by reducing appetite, reduction in appetite will reduce your overall calorie intake and increase the amount of healthy foods you’ll eat. Coffee has been shown to help with this and it’s not a secret that coffee itself is quite a healthy drink (as long as you don’t add copious amounts of sugar to it), reduction in appetite is one part of the puzzle.
The next part is by increasing metabolism, your basal metabolic rate essentially refers to “The number of calories your body will use without doing anything at all”, lying on your bed all day you’ll likely be burning around 1700 calories or more, increasing this rate will increase the amount of calories you can consume without going over your calorie deficit (which is vital to weight loss).
The last part is by increasing your energy during the day, this part is a bit anecdotal as I started recommending to my clients to drink coffee to stay energized and not rely on eating sugary foods instead, most of the time people will often feel “too tired” to work out. Drinking some coffee can easily help alleviate this issue or banish it entirely.
To finish this, I’ll leave a link to the top rated coffee makers for you to start drinking this great drink!
