Every time I wake up in the morning I’m excited because coffee is my favorite part of my morning routine.
I’ll start with making my bed, meditating, and then proceeding directly to making my coffee.
I’ll admit I’m turning into one of those annoying coffee snobs who has to have their morning coffee brewed JUST RIGHT.
Hey nobody’s perfect.
It’s just too bad so many people out there wrongly assume coffee is bad for them.
It’s placed in the same “bad beverages” category as soda and alcohol.
When in reality it’s actually one on of the best things you can be drinking to lose the belly pudge.
The big problem with coffee is when you put a pound of sugar in it and then top it off with a big slap of whip cream.
I like my coffee like I like my women… bitter and murky!
But I usually will just drink my coffee black or with some cream in it.
Another big injustice to the world of coffee is optioning for non-fat milk over whole milk or cream.
Against rational thinking non-fat milk is actually worse for you.
It’ll actually cause you to get fatter compared to whole milk or cream.
A meta-analysis of 16 studies found those who ate full-fat dairy had a lower risk for cardiovascular disease, obesity and diabetes.
This is because there’s a natural fat burning ingredient in whole milk and cream called CLA.
Once you go non-fat that natural fat burning compound is gone leaving you with a water down sugary opaque liquid.
Another fatty acid found in the fat of dairy called trans-palmitoleic acid is associated with healthier levels of insulin, inflammation and cholesterol.
Even Harvard University found the with the more coffee you drink the more likely you will lower your risk of type-2 diabetes.
Those who drank six 8-ounce cups of coffee daily had a 33% less risk of getting diabetes.
Researchers believe it’s not the caffeine responsible for this but the chlorogenic acid which naturally helps to slow the rate the intestines absorb glucose.
Sugar = Death 💀
I’d also stay clear of putting sugar and artificial sweeteners like Splenda in your coffee.
They’ll end up making you fat.
Plain and simple.
If you just have to sweeten up your coffee try putting in a little bit of stevia.
It’s not a perfect solution but it’s the best option to satisfy a sweet tooth.
Hope you start your day off right with a morning cup of joe from now on.
Your mood and your belly will thank you.
