In today’s world, coffee is more than just a drink. With the release of the series “Friends” 25 years ago, the process of drinking coffee became a kind of ritual, and the coffee industry itself – a religion. At the moment, there are dozens of variations of this drink from tart espresso to tender raff. Here, as usual, thinners have questions. Won’t there be extra coffee in their diet and will it affect the result?
It is worth starting with the fact that the energy value of ordinary black coffee is 2 kilocalories per middle cup of the drink. That is, even if you are used to 2-4 coffee pauses a day, it is unlikely to affect the figure somehow. Another thing is that most modern coffee houses and coffee shops add sugar, cow or vegetable milk, various syrups, toppings and sometimes even alcohol to the drink. This is exactly what can damage the figure, as many people often forget about the coffee they have drunk when calculating calories, without thinking about the fact that “just a cup of latte” can carry up to two hundred extra calories, depending on the volume and institution. Coffee also has a negative effect on the weight loss process because caffeine has a strong excitatory effect on the nervous system of some people, which can then cause insomnia, which can lead to overeating the next day.
However, coffee has a huge number of advantages. First, having drunk a cup of black coffee half an hour before training, you will wake up your body, give it a boost of energy and prepare your cardiovascular system for physical activity. Secondly, it is worth noting that the drink increases the metabolism, which also has a positive effect on the process of weight loss.
It is worth noting that coffee is useful not only for the body, but also for the brain. Fans of aromatic drink have by 65% less chance of developing Alzheimer’s disease, as coffee stimulates brain activity and improves memory. It is also a very interesting fact that coffee helps to fight depression. Scientists have proven that drinking about three cups of coffee a day can reduce the risk of depression by 20%.
It is an interesting fact: in good institutions, a cup of coffee is always served with a glass of clean drinking water. And this is not about aesthetics. Water refreshes the taste buds, reduces the production of hydrochloric acid in the stomach and prevents the increase in pressure.

In conclusion, it is worth saying that a cup of aromatic natural freshly brewed coffee will be a great addition to the morning meal, which not only does not hurt your figure, but also has a positive effect on your future condition. However, do not forget that the consumption of this drink is worth adhering to moderation.
Make yourself a cup of coffee, and do not forget about the balance and harmony with yourself!
