Coffee (Drink it Black!)
Some people can’t live without their coffee. Luckily for them, coffee reduces the risk of cardiovascular and other inflammatory diseases. Coffee drinkers also have a lower risk for type II diabetes, liver disease, and promotes a healthy heart.
If that wasn’t enough, coffee can also aid in fat loss. Caffeine, chlorogenic acid, and quinides are just a few of the chemical compounds in coffee that promote weight loss through thermogenesis, increased fat oxidation, and the reduction of insulin levels.
The consumption of coffee goes back centuries.
In 17th century England the popularity of the drink gave rise to a number of coffee houses which were dubbed ‘penny universities’, because with one penny a person could buy a cup of coffee and have intellectually stimulating conversations with other people.
