In fact, caffeine alone will not help you lose weight. A new study shows that people who drink four cups of coffee daily may experience weight loss and fat loss, but there is no evidence that this has been clinically significant.
Having a cup of coffee just before a meal may result in you eating less of that meal. The evidence suggests, however, that drinking three to four and a half hours before the next meal has no effect on how much you eat at that meal.
While some studies claim that decaffeinated coffee might help modest weight loss, other studies have found it to have no effect. Although there is not enough scientific evidence to conclude that caffeine causes weight gain, there are several possible explanations, including reluctant to eat In certain cases, caffeine may reduce your appetite and your desire to eat for a short time. Caffeine appears to be linked to increases in both physical activity and energy use even when you're at rest. It encourages the production of heat and energy through the digestion of food.
Most adults can use caffeine in moderation (400 milligrams or less). However, it is possible that drinking too much caffeine could result in nervousness, insomnia, nausea, elevated blood pressure, and other negative side effects.
Please bear in mind that some beverages such as specialty coffees and teas, which contain caffeine, are high in calories and fat. Milk and sugar can counteract your weight loss progress if you drink multiple cups of coffee or tea each day. If you overindulge in these higher calorie drinks, you may actually gain weight instead of losing it.
