Can Coffee Help You Slim Down?

Your morning coffee habit comes with plenty of healthy benefits, from putting more pep in your step to boosting brain function. But what about your healthy weight goals? If you’re looking to slim down, can coffee help?

Good news for coffee lovers: there’s evidence to suggest that coffee may have benefits for weight management. While no one is saying that drinking coffee will lead to weight loss without changing diet or exercise habits, research shows that coffee does affect your metabolism and energy in ways that can support your weight goals.

Here are a few ways that coffee may help you slim down:

1. Coffee helps boost metabolism

The caffeine in coffee is a natural stimulant that can boost your metabolic rate, or the rate at which your body burns calories. The more calories you burn for energy, the fewer calories get stored as fat. This is why someone with a faster metabolism can eat more than others without gaining weight.i Studies show that drinking caffeinated coffee can increase your metabolic rate by about 3-11%.ii, iii, iv

2. Coffee helps boost exercise

The energy and motivational boost you get from coffee can give some extra oomph to your exercise goals, helping you stay more active. Studies show that folks who drink more coffee are more likely to meet recommended physical activity levels.v Caffeine can also improve exercise performance and endurance, helping you get more out of your

3. Coffee can aid fat burning

Caffeine stimulates the nervous system and increases adrenaline, a hormone that promotes the breakdown of fat tissue.vii Once these fats are released into the bloodstream, they can be burned off through exercise. In fact, one recent study found that consuming caffeine before your workout can help increase fat burning by up to 29%!viii Several studies have found that drinking more coffee is linked with modest decreases in body fat.ix, x

Of course, you’ll want to stick to a healthy eating and exercise plan to get the best weight loss results. But research suggests that drinking coffee as part of a healthy lifestyle can support your goals. You may want to add collagen to your coffee too.

Collagen may aid weight management

While collagen hasn’t been specifically studied for weight loss in humans, there’s reason to believe it may help. Because it’s a protein, collagen may increase satiety (the feeling of being full) and support a healthy body composition (the ratio of fat to lean body mass).xi Increased satiety can lead to eating less, while increased muscle mass can help you burn more calories while at rest.

JBA’s delicious, rich instant coffee powders deliver the metabolism boost of coffee with the weight management benefits of collagen. Each caffe latte also has benefits for a specific condition, such as supporting luminous skin (Hello Beautiful), sexual vitality (Stanomax), and cognitive function (Mastermind).* Just stir, sip, and smile.
