Health experts and nutritionists around the world talk about how black coffee helps in losing weight. According to a recent study, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, caffeine in coffee helps accelerate weight loss programme.
Coffee boosts the metabolic activity and increases the energy level, which further curbs hunger. That’s the reason people reach for a hot piping cup of coffee when they need more energy or lift up their mood.
Coffee for weight loss
Add a few healthy ingredients to your black coffee instead of milk and sugar. Adding cocoa powder and flaxseed makes coffee even healthier and flavourful. Both these ingredients are known to be good for any weight loss programme. Cocoa is known to boost the body’s metabolism.
Many nutritionists and fitness trainers recommend people to add cocoa powder to their protein shakes. While flaxseeds are brimming with fibre, which takes long to breakdown and digest, keeping you full for a longer time. “Flaxseeds are a great source of soluble mucilaginous (gum-like) fibre that … acts as a hunger suppressant,” notes the book, ‘Healing Foods’ by DK Publishing House.
Take a coffee mug and add ground flaxseeds and cocoa powder along with coffee powder. Mix them well with warm water and drink it every morning to keep up with your weight loss plans.
It is really good for fitness freaks who love coffee, drink this coffee to avoid bingeing on unwanted calories later in the day. Make sure you do not add any sugar or artificial sweeteners to it.
