Does coffee make you lose weight?

Whether at breakfast, during an office break or after a good meal, coffee is one of the most widely consumed drinks in France. Appreciated for its stimulating properties and its wide variety of tastes, it is no coincidence that 9 out of 10 French people enjoy it. With such a high consumption, it is not surprising that you wonder if it also makes you lose weight

Coffee, a daily pleasure

You may be used to drinking your coffee because it helps you wake up or get through the day. But did you know that it has many benefits on a daily basis? The main culprit is caffeine. It keeps your brain more stimulated and has a diuretic action that helps to eliminate toxins from your body more easily.

If coffee is known for its ability to promote intestinal transit, it is also appreciated for its antioxidants, which are very useful in the fight against many diseases such as Parkinson’s and certain cancers. And that’s not all! Because by allowing better dilation of blood vessels, particularly in the brain, coffee prevents migraines and helps to improve your mood. So there’s no reason to deprive yourself of it!

An ally for losing weight

Coffee is naturally low in calories. Thanks to the action of caffeine, which activates thermogenesis, it acts directly on the body’s calorie expenditure, even when at rest. Thus, by consuming two to three cups a day, you allow your body to increase the secretion of adrenaline, and thus increase your body’s caloric expenditure.

Another scientifically recognised benefit is that coffee facilitates intestinal transit and digestion, which are essential for weight control. The same applies to physical activity, where the effects of coffee are particularly effective in mobilising the “bad fats” to be eliminated.

Does coffee make you fat? Yes, if you drink too much!

Beyond 3 cups a day, the benefits of the drink are cancelled out and can even cause the opposite effect. Over-consumption of coffee can cause numerous problems for your body, such as heart, digestive and sleep disorders. A paradox when you know that this is the time when you burn a lot of calories!

Other undesirable effects can occur such as increased anxiety, heartburn or diarrhoea. These attacks are very badly perceived by your body, which feels threatened and reduces its caloric expenditure accordingly.

If you are wondering whether coffee is good or bad for your health, it is clearly good for your body, in addition to a balanced diet and regular exercise. But be careful not to overdo it and space out each cup over time.
