New research from Spain confirms that just 1 cup of coffee is enough to stimulate the body’s ability to burn fat during exercise.
Research from the University of Granada (Spain) shows that about 3 mg of caffeine / 1 kg of body weight, equivalent to 1 cup of strong coffee 30 minutes before exercise, will increase the rate of burning. fat. In addition, if you do this during afternoon exercise, the effects of caffeine will be more pronounced than in the morning.
Published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition, a group of male volunteers with an average age of 32 were tested four times over a one-week period. They were given the choice to take a pill containing 3 mg/1 kg of caffeine or a placebo, at 8 and 17 hours, and then exercise. A coffee-exercise relationship and fat burning rate have been documented.
Dr. Francisco J. Amaro, lead author of the study, added that the recommendation to exercise on an empty stomach in the morning to increase fat burning is common, but may lack scientific basis. . It is not possible to determine whether this increase is due to exercise or simply because the body lacks food for a long time, so it burns fat faster. This new study shows that drinking a cup of coffee before exercise, while providing a certain amount of energy, makes fat burning happen even more effectively.
Before that, a large study led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirmed that many compounds in coffee are the cure for excess fat. A survey of 190,000 people showed that 22-40 year old women who drank 2-3 cups of coffee a day had 3.4% lower body fat than those who did not drink; at the age of 45-69, 4 cups or more reduces fat by 4.1%; regardless of whether they live a healthy life and have a chronic illness.
Coffee is also proven to be a healthy drink in many ways: it helps prevent cardiovascular diseases, liver and kidney diseases, supports sexual ability… However, not everyone should drink coffee. A study just published in JAMA Open by a team of authors from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development Eunice Kennedy Shiriver (USA) said that just about half a cup of coffee per day is enough to make pregnant women feel pregnant. women give birth to smaller children later, according to the comparison of the newborn’s head circumference and the mother’s dietary data.
