New research shows that women who drink four or more cups of coffee a day have an average of 4.1 percent less body fat than women who do not drink coffee.
A group of international researchers led by Dr. Lee Smith of the University of England Ruskin in Cambridge examined the relationship between coffee use and body weight among women and men. The scientific work compares data from the National Center for Health and Nutrition Research at the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The results showed a significant proportionality between drinking more coffee and reduced weight.
“Coffee or its effective ingredients could be included in a healthy eating strategy to reduce the burden of chronic weight-related illnesses,” says Dr. Smith.
In particular, women between the ages of 20 and 44 who drank two to three cups of coffee a day had the lowest recorded level of adipose tissue. However, what you lubricate these parameters are not so pronounced. For men between the ages of 20 and 44, who drank two or three cups of coffee a day, fat was 1.3 percent lower and stomach fat was 1.8 percent lower.
And Chao Kao, a scientist at the University of Washington, also thinks that people should add coffee to their menu, but next to other healthy foods. Of course, according to him, other factors, such as sugar and various additives in coffee, reduce this effect.
So, try to drink pure coffee without sugar and milk. It’s a habit. At the beginning, the change will be negative, but in time you will get used to it. Persistence pays off in the long run. If you add sugar and milk, start gradually: first throw out the sugar for the taste so that it does not change drastically, and then try without milk.
As much as you are a true coffee lover, the change will make you happy once you get used to it. Additives like sugar and milk change the taste, and without them you will taste the real aroma of coffee.
