Are you one of those who lost weight on caffeine?? or maybe thinking that it was the caffeine effect while you were trying to control your food quality and quantity..
I personally never think using those methods to lose some fat or kg, I always adpat the natural way which I’m sure you all know:
Eating a balanced diet + exercise!
But, what is the direct relation between caffeine and weight loss? And why a lot of burning pills are made of Caffeine?
I will start by saying that caffeine may slightly boost weight loss or maybe prevent weight gain, but there’s no proves that increased caffeine consumption can lead to permanent weight loss!
When I say caffeine, it doesn’t mean only the coffee we drink, but also different beverages including caffeine like tea, energy drinks and cola, products containing cocoa or chocolate.
What does coffee do??
Caffeine stimulates thermogenesis : one of the ways your body generates heat and energy from digesting food.
Thermogenesis is one basal metabolic rate reaction, that means the metabolism of your body at rest, when you are not doing any effort. So it is a minimal reaction. And there is no evidence that long-term coffee consumption aids in weight loss.
Caffeine also acts as a diuretic, which means it increases the amount of urine you excrete. So you end up losing the water more than the fat! That what makes you lose weight!
Caffeine acts as an natural appetite suppressant:
Caffeine lovers, those who drink more than 3 cups of coffee a day, may end up eating less through out the day. Caffeine gives a feeling of satiety, especially when it comes to smoking with caffeine consumption!
Coffee contains antioxidants, which fight against cancer problems, but too much caffeine might cause nervousness, insomnia, nausea and increased blood pressure! It contains “cafestol” which increases blood cholesterol levels, so it is recommended for people with cholesterol problems!
Do not use any pills! It is dangerous on the long run!
My advise: 2 cups of coffee daily are healthy due to their high antioxidant levels, but not more than this: Caffeine will cause irritability, addiction and hypertension..
