Burn More Calories
Caffeine has been to shown to stimulate thermogenesis, which is the way your body turns food into heat and energy. By drinking a cup of coffee or espresso, you could be increasing the amount of calories and fat you burn all day.
Get a Better Workout
Coffee even improves your workout, according to a study done by the School of Psychology at the University of Wales College of Cardiff. No matter what time of the day or night, they found, a cup of caffeinated coffee had positive effects on “alertness and improved performance on a variety of tasks.”
