Coffee for Weight Loss

Coffee for Weight LossCoffee for Weight Loss

Researchers at the University of Sao Paulo in Brazil suggest that drinking coffee before exercise makes it easier for muscles to burn body fat, increasing the likelihood of weight loss. The new study, published in the Journal of Applied Physiology, found drinking up to 400 milligrams of caffeine (four cups of brewed coffee), an hour before working out boosts athletic performance whether we’re a light, moderate, or heavy caffeine user, Science Times reported.

“No matter the habitual caffeine intake in the diet, acute caffeine supplementation can improve performance,” said Dr. Bruno Gualano, study author and a professor of physiology and nutrition at the University of Sao Paulo in Brazil. To test caffeine’s effects on your workout, start with small doses, and try a cup of coffee before hitting the gym, he added.
