Coffee for weight loss is definitely a daily habit you might want to consider. You might be surprised to learn that drinking your morning coffee is a great decision for your health. Drinking a moderate amount of coffee (3-5 cups) can give you a significant step up to help you reach your weight loss goals.


Here are some of the major health benefits of drinking coffee:

  1. Coffee can help your workout to go better. Drinking a cup of coffee before working out can help to keep your head in the game. I often have a cup of coffee before I hit the gym and it definitely helps me to run further and pump a little bit more iron. Coffee gives you that little extra boost that you need in order to get in a solid workout that you can be proud of.
  2. Coffee helps you to burn more fat throughout the day due to an increase in your metabolism levels. Drink a few cups in the morning over a consistent period of time and you will be sure to see the difference.
  3. Coffee tastes great, and it can be something to look forward to in the mornings. This is especially true if you are like me and you are not a morning person as it gives you an early morning happiness boost.
  4. Even just the smell of coffee can boost energy levels. Whether or not this is a placebo effect or if there is something more to it remains to be determined, but just a whiff might be all you need. This is especially helpful if you don’t like the taste. Just brew a pot for a friend or significant other and breathe deep.
  5. Coffee contains a lot of antioxidants which can help protect us from cancer causing free radicals.
