Coffee and Weight Loss

A lot of people drink coffee because it gives them more energy. They also think it helps take the weight off, but according to a report from the Mayo Clinic, drinking coffee and other caffeinated beverages won’t do you any good in reference to losing weight and keeping it off. Here’s the nitty-gritty directly from the experts at Mayo. Caffeine acts as a diuretic. It causes the body to temporarily retain less water, but there is nothing to suggest that these effects are permanent and the stimulant does nothing to reduce body fat. After this, the fact that drinking coffee actually puts more strain on the heart of people exercising, you quickly realize it doesn’t help with weight loss. The bottom line is if you want to drink coffee, do so in moderation, but definitely don’t do it to count on these so-called benefits to lose weight. It’s not going to help you lose weight. It’s not going to have that big of an effect.
