There are so many of us that can’t wait to get up in the morning and start our day with a fresh hot cup of coffee. But do you know what that cup of brew is doing for you? That first cup of coffee can speed up your metabolism for the rest of the day, Especially if you are working out in the gym. Between the caffeine and the workout, you will continue to burn calories even after you leave the gym. They say that by drinking a cup of coffee you may be able to workout harder and longer.
What about the calories in your morning brew.
Is your black coffee better for weight loss? Yes it is! Once you put in the half and half, sugar or syrups and top it off with the whipped cream, you just created a high calorie drink. Most of your common coffee drinks contain around 300-500 calories depending on size and ingredients. A cup of black coffee alone has only 2 calories. Bottom line is, if you are drinking coffee to help you lose weight and get your metabolism moving, then make sure it is black.
Is your coffee healthy?
If you are concerned about your health then you should be drinking organic coffee. Many of the well known coffee’s contain harmful chemicals. Chemicals that remain even after roasting. If you have to add a cream or sugar to your coffee, make sure it is organic. Organic half and half or organic soy milk are two good choices. If you are adding a sweetener make sure it is an organic sweetener like organic sugar or organic agave. Agave comes in several flavors that will flavor your coffee without all the preservatives that the flavored creamers have. So grab a healthy cup of coffee and happy dieting.
