Scientists just found proof that drinking coffee could possibly give you the body of your dreams

Ah coffee…

The reason why we wake up in the morning.
The magical potion that can keep us semi-focused at boring meetings.
The drink that gives us LIFE.

That’s right. Research from scientists at the University of Nottingham found proof that caffeine consumption has been associated with loss of body weight.

How?

By stimulating brown fat- the fatty tissue that’s responsible in generating body heat by burning calories.

Basically, coffee heats up brown tissue which burns fat, i.e. COFFEE BURNS FAT.
(or should we say “roast” your fat? heh heh heh)

Why is this important?

Well, so far the only proven way to activate brown fat is through regular exercise, exposure to cold temperatures or to just be a baby (babies have lots of brown fat btw).

This is the FIRST proof that brown fat can be activated in a
different way.

Also, PROOF that COFFEE. IS. MAGIC.

Professor Michael Symonds, co-director of the study explains that brown fat produces heat by burning sugar and fat. So it also helps in improving sugar and lipid levels in the blood while helping a latte with weight loss.

(FYI, people with lower BMI also have higher amounts of brown fat.)

“This is the first study in humans to show that something
like a cup of coffee can have a direct effect on our brown fat functions. The
potential implications of our results are pretty big, as obesity is a major
health concern for society and we also have a growing diabetes epidemic and
brown fat could potentially be part of the solution in tackling them.”

Professor Michael Symonds, School of Medicine at the University of Nottingham

In conclusion

Drinking coffee burns fat, helps in diabetes AND is a possible therapy for obesity. Of course, you have to make sure the coffee isn’t loaded with sugar and creamer lah!

So if you’re on a weight loss journey, it’s worth a (double) shot!
