Did You Know Drinking 2-6 Cups Of Coffee A Day Burns Away Fat?
..This is because Coffee is what is known as a Thermogenic. Basically, it helps turn your body into a fat burning furnace. Here is why…
…Coffee stimulates your central nervous system. Don’t worry, I won’t crush you with science. Essentially coffee’s impact on your nervous system makes your body do a bunch of things:
- The body’s core temperature is raised a little bit
- Your heart rate elevates and the heart beats faster and harder than normal
- Breathing can elevate with the heart rate
- Hunger disappears
- Your body gets rid of waste faster
ALL of those factors contribute to weight loss! Your body’s temperature is raised, so your body has to actually work harder (burning more calories) just to bring your temperature down to normal levels…
…Your heart rate increases to help burn more calories to bring the temperature down, but then forces your breathing to quicken. This is because your body now needs more oxygen…
…Meanwhile the caffeine is telling your brain “you aren’t actually that hungry” and “get rid of the waste you have”. Coffee does this because it is a diuretic, and makes you get rid of excess waste (urine and feces).
Coffee Also Has Almost No Calories

…Coffee also has addictive properties. The result of an extremely popular drink with addictive effects on the brain? The second most traded good in the world! the only think that totally beats coffee in trade is oil.
You can probably start to get a picture for why the coffee business is so large. In fact, there are over 25 million farmers worldwide who grow and sell coffee…
…Weirder still is that the United States barely capitalizes on this. Hawaii is the only state that commercially grows and sells coffee. This is only true because their climate allows it however.
The Average American Will Spend Around $20 A Week On Coffee
You are tired and passing by a Dunkin’ Donuts or a Starbucks and pull in for some coffee. You order your coffee drink which could range from $2.50-$4 depending on what you get. That is assuming you only buy one drink. A lot of consumers will actually purchase multiple coffees a day…
…This means that the average American will actually spend over $1,000 a year just in quick coffee. You would actually save hundreds of dollars by buying bags at a grocery store and making your own…
…Let’s do the math. If you even bought an expensive coffee at $20-$25 a pound and could make that bag last you 2 weeks, or maybe even three weeks you could save at the least over $500 a year!
America Drinks Over 400 Million Cups Of Coffee Per Day
…To put in perspective how much coffee that is you can look to Niagra Falls. The amount of coffee American’s drink every day is enough to flow over Niagra Falls for nearly 3 whole minutes! The amount every year would be able to flow over Niagra Falls for almost 18 hours and 15 minutes.
