Could THIS Drink Sabotage Your Weight Loss?
With Thanksgiving arriving later this week, New Year’s resolutions will be here before you know it.
If you’re already gearing up to take your annual stab at the Battle of the Bulge, I’ve got just the thing for you.
And you don’t need to wait until the new year to get started.
Instead of telling you to cut out everything you love, I will reveal how one of my FAVORITE beverages (and maybe YOURS, too) could help you lose weight.
There are a LOT of coffee lovers out there.
And there are probably just as many ways to enjoy this delicious drink: 2% milk, half and half, almond milk, soy milk, sugar, sugar-free, flavored syrups, added superfoods, decaf, regular…
The list goes on.
But it turns out my FAVORITE way to drink Java won’t stand in the way of your weight loss efforts. In fact, when you drink it the right way… BLACK… it can help you slim down.
Researchers examined data on over 155,000 people and determined that drinking a daily cup of coffee (decaf or regular) is associated with a small but measurable decrease in body weight over four years.
On the flip side, adding even ONE teaspoon of sugar to your daily cup of Joe was linked to a slight weight gain over the same period.
These connections were stronger among folks with a higher BMI (body mass index).
Now, don’t get me wrong. These results weren’t significant enough to suggest that how you drink your favorite brew will make or break your weight loss (or management) efforts.
But it DOES go to show you every little bit counts when it comes to diet.
Even better news for folks who prefer cream in their coffee is that adding unsweetened creamer DIDN’T impact weight.
So, if you don’t like your coffee black like me, feel free to enjoy it with half and half or whole milk for a nice boost of flavor and nutrition.
P.S. SUPERCHARGE your weight loss efforts with THIS potent combo.
