Coffee not only perfectly awakens in the morning, contributes to longevity and reduces the risk of developing type 2 diabetes, but also allows you to lose weight.

This is the conclusion of scientists from the Guangzhou University of Science and Technology (Wuhan, Hubei, China), reports HB Style with reference to the portal Look.

They conducted a new study, the results of which are published in the journal Nature communications journal.

Scientists injected mice with caffeine and found that with its use, the mice began to eat less and, accordingly, lost weight.

There are several reasons for this weight loss. First, coffee can contribute to an increase in metabolism by 3-11%. Caffeine starts the process of lipolysis in the body - the breakdown of fat and its transformation into energy. Secondly, coffee gives you energy, helping you work harder in the gym and therefore burn more calories. In addition, the study found that coffee suppresses appetite and reduces cravings for sweets.

According to researchers, to lose weight, you need to drink four cups of coffee a day, but with proper healthy nutrition and regular exercise. Ideally, coffee should be drunk half an hour before training and not later than 16: 00, if you want to fall asleep quickly and calmly. Drinking more than 400 g of coffee per day can cause increased anxiety or heart palpitations.
