Guide to a slim figure: 3 cups of coffee a day [study]

The Journal of Nutrition comes up with a new study on the effect of right coffee drinking on reducing body fat in women. The research is causing excitement among all coffee loving women who desire a slim waistline. A more pleasant "how to lose weight" guide perhaps does not exist.

The research began with the collection of data from NHANES (National Healtr and Nutrition Examination Survey), the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. This survey was conducted in the USA by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). The study aimed to investigate the relationshipbetween coffee consumption and the accumulation of body fat.


To ensure valid research, the reliable method of DXA, or Densitometry , was used to measure body fat. In this method, a person is exposed to a weak X-ray. Radiation of two energy levels penetrates the body tissues and the differential absorption of this X-ray is measured. This method is the most effective for obtaining data on the amount and distribution of fat in the body. For example, the well-known simple method of measuring body fat ratios, called BMI, would not meet the accuracy requirements because it works with data on a person's height and weight without distinguishing whether it is the weight of fat or other (e.g. muscle) tissue. The study would then not be relevant.


Overweight has become a problem of global proportions. Globally, the number of obese people on the planet has almost tripledsince 1975. In 2016, there were more than 650 million obese people in the world, according to the WHO (World Health Organization) . The primary reasons for obesity are an imbalance between energy intake and energy expenditure.

Simply put, we eat a lot of fats and sugars. And we don't move much. We don't exercise, we drive cars everywhere, and many of us have sedentary jobs with minimal exercise. All of this takes a toll on our physique and our health.


The health impact of obesity in particular was the motivation for the data on the potential of coffee to combat excess weight. It did. The result of the study revealed thatwomen between the ages of 20 and 44 who drink 2-3 cups ofcoffee daily haveless body fat, especially in the abdominal area, than those who don't like coffee much. In women over 45 years of age, the effect was seen when drinking 4 cups of coffee per day. As an average cup of coffee, imagine a cup of coffee of around 230 ml.

Overall, the average percentage of total body fat was 2.8% lower in women of all ages who drank two or three cups of coffee per day.

There are more than1,000 bioactive substancesin coffee , such as the most famous of them all - caffeine. We already know about some of their health benefits. Moderate coffee consumption (about a cup a day), reduces the risk of type 2 diabetes. Coffee also hasanti-inflammatory effects. Many other effects of coffee on our health are still to be discovered. This study has shown that coffee helps fight obesity. That is, only in women. Interestingly, in men, such an effect of coffee has not been shown or has been shown only in a tiny, almost negligible, amount.

The best coffee for health is black coffee without added milk or sugar (especially if you want to use coffee to lose weight). A Mocca Master or other automatic drip coffee machine will help you to get this throughout your day.


This study confirms the positive effect of coffee on fat loss in the body. Now we need to find out what exactly promotes this reaction. It is a well-known fact that caffeine has a positive effect on the human body.In relation to weight loss, caffeine helps by raising body temperature andspeeding up metabolism. This may help to regulate energy balance. By accelerated burning, itprevents new weight gain. Dr. Lee Smith, one of the authors of the study, is excited that research has suggested the presence of bioactive compounds in coffee that could form a cure for obesity in addition to caffeine.

Dr Lee Smith, who is part of Anglia Ruskin University and also lead author of the study, said, "Our research suggests that there may be bioactive compounds in coffee other than caffeine that regulate weight and that could potentially be used as anti-obesity compounds.

Dr. Lee Smith also states that coffee or its active ingredients may be incorporated into future healthy eating strategies to prevent the rise of increasing obesity in the world.

However, the study was conducted over a period of time, so its shortcomings need to be taken into account. However, Dr. Lee Smith believes that there is a strong possibility that coffee reduces overall body fat.

Around7 million tons of coffeeare consumed globally every year .

Does coffee with lemon really promote weight loss?

The miracle drink that melts away the pounds? Is adding lemon to coffee the secret to weight loss? The answer is simple. No! Squeezing lemon into your favorite cup won't help you fit into smaller jeans. There is nothing in lemon juice that burns fat.

How did this trick come about?

Most likely it's because of the claims about lemon and water. Drinking a glass of water with lemon is often associated with weight loss methods. However, it's not because of the miraculous powers of lemons.

It's more about filling your stomach with a zero-calorie drink.

In fact, water will give you a feeling of fullness, thus helping to suppress hunger signals. Coffee has a similar effect on suppressing your appetite while also revving up your metabolism.

Are there any risks of adding lemon to coffee?

Lemon juice can cause heartburn. Due to the high levels of citric acid. In addition, this acid can also damage tooth enamel.

Lemon juice contains minerals such as calcium magnesium and zinc. By adding these minerals to coffee, they lose their effectiveness. Caffeine binds to these chemicals and prevents their absorption. So coffee essentially robs the lemon juice of some of its usefulness.

Does lemon in coffee have any benefits?

Lemons have good nutritional properties. They serve as a solid source of vitamin C. Thecitric acid contained in lemon can also aid in digestion and reduce the likelihood of kidney stones. Lemons are a great fruit, but they are not magical when it comes to weight loss.
