If you want to shift fat fast, the best legal option and most effective is to look at stimulants that we can ingest and get an instant impact from. In the modern-day, caffeine is the best stimulant that you can access to boost your metabolic rate and burn some unwanted fat.
Amazingly, over 2.25 Billion cups of coffee are consumed every day in the world and that number is growing. A cup of coffee is so much more than just a direct hit of caffeine, but it’s also that very ingredient that makes it an effective and addictive drink.
If you are not a regular coffee drinker or a consumer of higher doses of caffeine, adjusting your diet to consume coffee could well be the answer for you to shift some extra weight.
Coffee is known to suppress the appetite of some drinkers, this is a natural effect of the caffeine, it doesn’t work for everyone, but it is well known enough that most people are aware of this benefit. The good thing about coffee is that the liquid helps fill you up and whilst you may have a stunted appetite the caffeine gives you energy as you consume fewer calories.
Other vitamins that can give you energy when you are cutting calories are B vitamins. These are also found in many foods, drinks and supplements.
Let us just pause for a second and recognise that weight gain is not a reaction to drinking coffee, it just does not make you gain weight. In fact, expert studies have found that brown fat cells are stimulated and burnt, thus creating heat for the body, this might be termed as a light thermogenesis where your core heats up and allows you to burn more calories than you consume.
The only time coffee will increase your weight is if you drink it with added sugar or dairy. Adding a shot of caramel essence and 3 sugars with your full fat latté is not healthy, doing this 3 times per day will likely cause you to start storing the sugar as fat in your body.
To effectively get the benefits from coffee, it should be consumed black.
Coffee is thought to increase your metabolic rate for between 30 and 150 minutes after consumption. Studies vary in terms of the exact data and this is also down to the humans used for trials and their pre-existing metabolisms and of course how much caffeine was prescribed for the scientific trials.
Studies show that coffee, specifically caffeine, makes you want to poo more. Caffeine will cause your colon to contract 60% more than water does. Even decaf caffeine will make you excrete 23% more than water will. Clearly, coffee and it’s component parts (caffeine) stimulate your desire to poo and that means you can reduce weight in the short term.
