Yeah, best news ever if you ask me...especially for those that drink coffee on a regular basis. According to some new research at the University of Nottingham, they say that drinking coffee stimulates BAT. You're probably asking...Tony what the heck is BAT? Well, according to Inc.com, "BAT moderates your body chemistry to keep you healthy. It improves your body's ability to handle blood sugar, increases bone health and density, helps build lead muscle mass, increases longevity, and helps you burn all that fat."
So, in other words...coffee is sort of a super drink. if you didn't know that already.
Quoting the study, "Caffeine consumption has been associated with loss of body weight and increased energy expenditure ... Drinking coffee (but not water) stimulated the temperature of the supraclavicular region, which co-locates to the main region of BAT in adult humans, and is indicative of thermogenesis. These results demonstrate that caffeine can promote BAT function at thermoneutrality and may have the potential to be used therapeutically in adult humans."
Or...to put it in simple words...coffee burns fat. Sounds like a good deal to me! So, does anybody want to go on a coffee diet?
