Some studies have found that your morning cup of joe could bring big weight loss benefits.
Because of its caffeine content, coffee may aid weight loss by boosting metabolism and fat burning.
According to one small study in eight men, caffeine consumption increased metabolism by 13% and enhanced fat breakdown (24).
Another study in 58,157 adults showed that coffee may aid long-term weight control, as increased coffee intake was associated with less weight gain over a 12-year period (25).
While coffee may not make a balanced breakfast all on its own, you can easily pair it with your favorite healthy breakfast foods to give your morning meal an upgrade.
Just make sure not to overdo the sugar or creamer, as they add calories and negate some of coffee’s potential health-promoting properties.
Coffee has been shown to increase metabolism and fat-burning. Long-term coffee consumption may also aid weight control.
