Caffeinate A Workout = Greater Fat Burn
By Alya Alyssa Kattan
In a previous post I wrote about caffeine being the best fat burner. Since not all caffeinated beverages were created equal, some are better than others at fighting belly fat & helping you shed the weight off faster, I have decided to revisit this post. If you have a spare tire, fill up on green tea before your next workout!A study published in the “Journal of Nutrition” found that people who drank green tea, as compared with those who drank caffeine only, lost more weight with exercise. Over 12 weeks, those drinking green tea lost 2.4 more pounds and lost more of it from the abdominal area.
How much and when to drink?
Studies have shown that the optimal dosage is about 2 to 3 milligrams of caffeine for every kilogram you weigh. For most people that is 2 to 3 cups of coffee. The optimal time? About an hour before your workout gives the best results.
