Like many people, you may want to drop a few pounds as quickly as possible. Some people suggest drinking coffee as a dietary aid, but the role of coffee and caffeine in weight loss plan is heavily debated. Caffeine may help you lose a bit of weight or even prevent weight gain, but it cannot help you lose significant weight or keep it off permanently; however, by drinking coffee sensibly and combining it with a healthy diet and exercise regimen, you can lose weight. Number one. Drink coffee in healthy amounts. A little bit of coffee goes a long way. It can temporarily suppress your appetite and may stimulate minimal calorie burning. But excessive coffee consumption can lead to increased stress levels and insomnia, both of which can lead to overeating. Just 1 or 2 cups of fully-caffeinated coffee per day may be enough to help you lose weight. In total, you should have no more than 400 milligrams of caffeine per day.

This is the equivalent of four cups of brewed coffee, 10 cans of cola, or two “energy shot” drinks. And keep in mind that plain coffee is your best bet in terms of losing weight. One cup of black coffee has only 2 calories and no fat. Number two. Space out your coffee times. If you want to reap the most weight-loss benefits from drinking coffee, consider spacing out your intake throughout the day. Not only can this give you an added boost at work or during exercise, but may also suppress food cravings. Stick to the daily limits as much as possible. For example, if you can safely drink 4 cups of coffee per day, you could have a cup in the morning, one at lunch, one mid-afternoon and a cup at dinner. Adjust the schedule to see what works best for you Number three. Try half-caff. If you want to drink more coffee throughout your day, try switching to a mixture of full and decaffeinated beans, often called half-caff. This will allow you to safely drink coffee up to eight times a day and may help you more effectively lose weight.

Make sure to read product labels to ensure you’re getting half-caffeinated coffee. The label may also indicate how much caffeine is in a cup. So long as you’re staying within the safe consumption limits every day, you can have as many cups of half-caff as you like. .
