Now I'm not going to get my hopes up here because I've drank coffee forever and it's never helped me lose weight BUT this is worth a read!
There's a new study that says drinking coffee MAY help you burn off fat. How? These researchers found that coffee can stimulate something called "brown fat" in our bodies. What is that exactly? It's a special kind of fat that heats up and burns calories.
Now before you think "Rad! I will just start pounding coffee and not go to the gym anymore!"...this isn't a good enough reason to just start drinking like 6 pots of coffee a day and hoping that it makes you look like a supermodel. That isn't going to happen.
BUT they do say that the link between coffee and burning fat does look promising but they need more studies to confirm anything concrete.
