Your own cup of coffee in the morning help you to lose weight, it’s a simple way for all of people who wants to lose weight and be fitness.
Study finds that drinking a cup of coffee can help you to lose weight by stimulating "brown fat", which burns calories to generate body heat, experts have found.
Professor Michael Symonds said that brown fat works in a different way to other fat in your body and produces heat by burning sugar and fat, often in response to cold from the School of Medicine at the University of Nottingham, who co-directed the research.
He added that it was the first research that show how coffee has an impact on brown fat in humans.Increasing its activity improves blood sugar control as well as improving blood lipid levels and the extra calories burnt help with weight loss," he added. "This is the first study in humans to show that something like a cup of coffee can have a direct effect on our brown fat functions.
The study shows that potential implications results are pretty big, as obesity is a major health concern for society and we also have a growing diabetes epidemic and brown fat could potentially be part of the solution in tackling them.
They then moved on to humans, using a thermal imaging technique to trace the body's brown fat reserves as they emitted heat.
"From our previous work, we knew that brown fat is mainly located in the neck region, so we were able to image someone straight after they had a drink to see if the brown fat got hotter", Prof Symonds said .The results were positive and we now need to ascertain that caffeine as one of the ingredients in the coffee is acting as the stimulus or if there's another component helping with the activation of brown fat.
"We are currently looking at caffeine supplements to test whether the effect is similar. Once we have confirmed which component is responsible for this, it could potentially be used as part of a weight management regime or as part of glucose regulation programme to help prevent diabetes."
