Do you know that Black Coffee, which has always been a favorite beverage for all, is also a catalyst in weight loss? Surprising, isn’t it? Rich in caffeine, it is known for various health benefits like prevention of cancer, mild depression and head ache. About 80% of the world’s population drinks coffee every day in various amounts. But very few know of the black coffee weight loss connection.

Black Coffee Benefits For Weight Loss

Now here is the ‘secret link’ which gives you a clear picture about the advantages of drinking the black coffee for weight loss.

a. Role of chlorogenic acid as an anti-oxidant:

  • There are certain compounds in black coffee like chlorogenic acid which play a major role in weight loss.
  • When you consume black coffee after a meal, the cholrogenic acid present in it slows down the production of glucose in the body. At the same time, the production of new fat cells is lessened.
  • This process takes place only when one drinks black coffee which is rich in caffeine and cholrogenic acid.
  • Whereas adding milk or cream to the coffee would taste better than a normal black coffee but it does not aid weight loss.
  • Apart from cholrogenic acid, black coffee also contains anti-oxidants which are an essential compound for weight loss.

b. Suppresses hunger:

  • The caffeine in black coffee stimulates metabolic activity and increases the energy level which in turn suppresses hunger. A cup of black coffee contains 5.4 calories and it is also known as a calorie free drink.
  • When sugar or cream is added, the calorie level increases.

c. Black coffee’s impact on your calorie leve:

  • Drinking black coffee can bring a lot of changes to your everyday calorie level. As black coffee stimulates the metabolic activity it keeps you active and burns more calories. Thus you can shed large number of calories per day which in turn helps weight loss.
  • Drinking black coffee before workout is the best way to burn more calories.

d. Reduces the water content:

  • Some people are heavy due to fat or excess water content in their body. Drinking black coffee reduces high water content due to frequent urination.
  • With the help of this method, extra pounds due to high water content will be cut down without any threatening side effects.

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.


  • Anything that is consumed in excess would have side effects. Similarly, when black coffee is consumed in excess, it causes hypertension.
  • Drinking 2 cups per day is advisable.

So shove that extra pounds and look simply superb. Feel free to tell us about your experience and spread the message to all.
