There are always going to be a lot of different ways out there to lose weight, and equally ways and things that do not help you lose weight. One thing that researchers do think that could help you really lose weight is to quit drinking coffee. There are some things in coffee like caffeine that will keep you awake for longer, which means less sleep. Less sleep tends to lead to bad habits like overeating, which can definitely lead to you gaining weight, and not losing it.
Caffeine in coffee also does a great job of changing your sense of taste. Things will taste different after drinking coffee, and will make you want to keep adding sugar or cream to it which can lead to less weight loss and more weight gain.
Sometimes when you drink more coffee, and more stronger coffee with things in it, it makes you more awake and alert. For some people, that is a good thing, but not always. Being more awake and alert can sometimes lead to more time to get cravings for other things that could be bad for you and be against the whole trying to lose weight thing. So sometimes, coffee isnt the best thing to drink.
Did you know your coffee habit may be the reason you aren’t losing weight? #HealthStatus
