Coffee and Tea are harmless by themselves
It’s when you add cream and sugar that they become fattening.
Did you know that having...
A cup of coffee or tea with cream and two cubes of sugar is as bad as having a big piece of rich chocolate
The caffeine in coffee helps suppress your appetite and increases your metabolism plus… the caffeine also gives you more energy during your workouts for a better and longer workout session.
That said, You shouldn't drink more than 1-to-2 cups per day because it will cause the opposite effect.

4. Green Tea
Green Tea is a powerhouse when it comes to weight loss – and I don’t say that lightly.
Here a few ways green tea can help you lose weight:
- Green tea is a diuretic, meaning it flushes out Fake Fat (i.e. excess water weight)
- It contains caffeine which boasts your fat-burning metabolism by up to 4% (proof)
- Green tea ramps up your energy (proof) – meaning a harder and longer fat-burning workout session.
- It increases appetite-suppressing hormones like cholecystokinin (CCK) which helps you eat less and controls cravings. (proof and more proof)
- Green tea increases the amount of Fat- breakdown hormones like adrnaline and adiponectin that accelerates your fat burning. (proof & more proof)
The best part is:
Green tea is rich in antioxidants which prolong your life.
Bottom line is:
Drink green tea in the morning, afternoon, night, before workout, after workout etc. (about 7 times a day)
5. Red Wine
Yes! Wine (I know, shocking.).
Studies show that moderate wine drinkers have narrower waists and less belly fat than liquor drinkers. Studies also show that Downing a glass of wine can boost your calorie burn for a good 90 minutes.
Dry wine is better than sweet wine. Sweet wines naturally contain a lot of sugar.
But on the other hand, in dry wine, most of the sugar has been fermented away.
So from weight loss point of view, dry wines are better than sweet wines.
It’s going to be old news for you to be reminded that water helps improve the overall metabolism of the body thus helps burn fat.
In case you didn’t know water has no calories and water also helps flush out toxins for the body to stay healthy.
Drinking a couple glasses of water before meals will also make you eat much less so, you lose more weight easily.
If you’re serious about losing weight, then drink about 2.2 litres of water daily.
