Sipping coffee during office hours or while watching movies or on a date with your girlfriend or boyfriend is fun for sure. But did you know that there are some awesome benefits to this? Caffeine intake can help you lose all that jiggly flab from your body. However, we are talking specifically about black coffee not the cream-and-sugar loaded cup of Joe. Drinking one small cup of black coffee twice every day can aid belly fat loss in your body. Now we will see ways by which we can use caffeine to shed that unsightly flab. 5 Worst Myths Related to Weight Loss: Dieting Mistakes Which Might Sabotage Your Fitness Goals.

Caffeine, the most-commonly used psychotropic substance in the world, features in many fat-burning products. It works by moving fat from your fatty tissues and ups your metabolism. Coffee also contains other components like theobromine, theophylline and chlorogenic acid, which are effective as fat burners.

How Coffee Leads to Weight Loss

Caffeine is a nervous system stimulant; it increases the production of the hormone epinephrine, which sends messages to the fat cells asking them to break themselves down.

But that's only half the story. Only if you workout or diet will the fat breakdown result in weight loss. Simply drinking cupfuls of coffee won't do.

 

How to Drink Coffee for Weight Loss

The best part about this fat burning remedy is that it is readily available everywhere right from small sachets to big jars. You could buy a small two-rupee sachet of any brand coffee powder, use the single sachet in entire one day.

You should use half the sachet before starting with any physical activity in the morning. Ideally, if you are on fat loss, you should be doing light exercises like brisk walking, jogging or cycling in the morning. Pour half the sachet into one small cup of hot water, drink it immediately and then start your workout.

It will not only aid in weight loss but also improve your performance by 11-12 percent. Caffeine blocks the neurotransmitter adenosine, increasing the release of dopamine and norepinephrine. This makes you feel fresh and energised after downing a cup of coffee.

The other half of the sachet can be used in the evening. Please ensure that you don't use more than one sachet in a day or else you may get addicted to caffeine. Excess intake of coffee can also lead to problems like constipation.  But, remember caffeine will only be useful if you work out and also take care of your overall calorie intake.
