Have you ever thought of coffee as a booster for your metabolism or a fat loss helper? Most people drink their coffee to get through the day, or just simply love the taste of it. The different kind of beans, flavors, and aromas are quite interesting. Other than adding your own personal touch to each cup of course, all types of coffee usually have one thing in common, the common factor is caffeine! Caffeine, as we all know, stimulates and gives your body energy thus helping you with your Weight Loss, but did you know it also has the power to boost your metabolism and curb your appetite? A single cup of black coffee only contains 2 calories!
Now as great as coffee is, please don’t forget to drink your water. Personally, when I drink a lot of coffee I feel the diuretic effect. Coffee tends to make you use the restroom more often and while getting rid of fluids is effective, it will also make you dehydrated. Keep in mind for every cup of coffee you will need to drink at least 2 cups of water. Other benefits of coffee are lowering risk of heart failure, liver failure, diabetes, and it is the number one source of antioxidants according to recent US research studies.
