e. Temporary weight loss and supports permanent weight loss:

  • Black coffee induces temporary weight loss. i.e. it eliminates the unwanted waste water and fluid accumulation in the body through urination. This is due to the rich caffeine content present in it.
  • Permanent weight loss happens only when the fat content in the body is reduced. Black coffee helps permanent weight loss by burning more calories. This is linked with weight loss as burning more calories will gradually reduce weight.
