Does the coffee have slimming properties?
That coffee is the best way to wake up everyone knows. But can it help you lose weight?
Coffee itself is not a high calorie drink. It becomes when we add cream, sweeteners or flavored syrups to it. The cup of espresso has 1 to 3 kcal.
Coffee without additives can help accelerate fat burning and it is up to several dozen percent. Her grains contain caffeine, which is a natural burner, stimulating the body’s heat production process and thus increasing the number of calories burned. Coffee may also reduce appetite, because of elevated blood sugar levels, but this has a short-term effect. Antioxidants, phenolic compounds and nutrients contained in this drink have rejuvenating, slimming and relaxing properties.
If you like white coffee and do not want to gain weight, choose a milk with a fat content of 0.5 – 2%. It is rich in vitamins D, E, A and calcium, potassium or phosphorus.
If you prefer to sweeten coffee, choose honey that has a lower glycemic index than sweeteners or sugar. Cinnamon added to coffee can not only enhance its taste, but also has a sugar-regulating effect in the blood. Another interesting additive is cocoa, which is also an antioxidant and also lowers blood pressure.
