Are you one of those people who can’t start the day until you have a cup of coffee?
The power of a good coffee is the unmistakable combination of smell and flavor, together with its subtle, invigorating effect.
You must have heard that coffee gives you energy and helps with weight loss, right? Coffee does boost the metabolism, but its effect is limited.
According to a study published in the British Journal of Nutrition, three to four cups of coffee per day helps prevent coronary diseases, Parkinson’s disease and type 2 diabetes.
Besides that, the beverage also decreases waist circumference, one of the biggest causes of heart issues. It happens because, according to the researchers, coffee significantly reduces the increase of glucose in the blood and also insulin resistance, which happens in type 2 diabetes.
But, how does coffee influence appetite and satiety? It modifies the production of hormones known as ghrelin, leptin, and peptide YY. These three are also responsible for our mood.

You have certainly noticed that when we are hungry, we get a little angry too, and most of the time, after eating, the feeling goes away. It has all to do with that saying “a full belly and a happy heart”.
According to the study, the link between coffee and satiety may be due to the fact that it decreases hunger (and leptin and ghrelin) and increases satiety (and the peptide YY). This condition only lasts 60 minutes after ingestion, or during the 2 hours our body takes to digest.
However, to get all these benefits, you must drink black coffee, without any sugar or cream.
And remember: using only coffee won’t help you lose weight, and its excessive consumption may cause intoxication.
Pregnant women must avoid coffee since caffeine increases the risk of premature birth.
The key to lose weight is to eat according to your nutritional plan. This way, your body won’t be asking for more food.
