Here is a news that will please many! Did you know that if you drink a cup of coffee 1 hour before exercising, you will burn 15% more calories than if you drink water?

This is a study published in theInternational Journal of Nutrition and Exercise Metabolismwho made this surprising revelation.

Caffeine is a stimulant that increases metabolism that provides better endurance. It also helps to increase the level of exercise intensity, resulting in additional caloric loss.

The study carried out in Spain followed 12 men and women who had a training program of 4 to 7 times per week for one hour.

1 hour before their moderate 60-minute training, one dose of caffeine was given to all participants in the study: some had placebo and the others had between 0.5 and 4,5 mg of caffeine.

When the researchers checked the heart rate, blood pressure and respiration of the volunteers, they were able to determine that 4.5 mg of caffeine 1 hour before the training of a person weighing 150 pounds allowed to burn at least 15% more calories!

Of course, you should avoid adding sugar to the coffee so that the effects are not canceled![pub]
