Coffee for weight loss
I would like to offer you not to talk about green coffee, which is considered to be an effective way to lose extra kilograms, but about black coffee. It can be both harmful and useful. It all depends on how your body refers to it (contraindications – high blood pressure or heart diseases), in what quantities you drink it, what quality of coffee you choose and many other factors.
We are accustomed to wake up in the morning smelling its alluring smell, and its extraordinary taste can give us a huge emotional charge for the whole day. It occurs thanks to caffeine. It improves mood and productivity during the day. Many people rely on caffeine to combat sleepiness. If you are a coffee lover and wish to lose some weight, this article is exactly for you!
How does coffee help to lose weight?
Coffee temporarily reduces appetite, which may be useful for weight loss by reducing the craving for unhealthy foods such as fast food, sugary desserts and salty snacks.
The presence of caffeine has a diuretic effect on our body, which can lead to rapid loss of unnecessary kilograms. Caffeine stimulates diuresis, which increases the amount of fluid released during the day.
Black coffee for slimming is able to increase the number of calories you expend during the day. Caffeine stimulates the central nervous system, speeding up the rate of metabolism, helping you to burn more calories regardless of whether you relax or swim in the pool.
Also, if you feel tired, coffee provides necessary increase of energy level, which can then be used to get a few extra workouts a week.
Thus, coffee may help you to lose weight. By the way, we have already considered one variant of the diet based on coffee. Now, I will offer you some options that don’t require a special menu or a schedule of food intake. What could be simpler? Just drink your favorite beverage and lose weight!
So, the ingredients that we need:
100 grams of honey – 50 grams of coconut oil – 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
Mix all ingredients and a wonderful mixture is ready! You should add one teaspoon of the resulting paste into a cup of hot coffee and enjoy! It is recommended to keep this mixture in the fridge.
I just hope that you like cinnamon (to be honest, I can’t stand it). BUT! Cinnamon can easily save you from extra fat accumulation! It speeds up metabolism, has a beneficial effect on digestion and normal functioning of the gastrointestinal tract, and many other positive benefits for figure and health in general.
The coconut oil contains special fatty acids, which also accelerate metabolism and strengthen health of the liver. In a complex, coffee with cinnamon and coconut oil enhances the effect of caffeine in several times. I think the benefits of honey are well known.
