How in the world did coffee become something that can make you fat? As my gorgeous husband would say, it makes no sense!
What is it about coffee, then, that it makes it something I should avoid? Well, coffee increases the stress levels of our bodies, literally, by increasing stimulation. That is why you can't sleep for half the night after having that late-night coffee date!
And that stress on the body can lead to an increase in cortisol, which, we know, may cause exhorbiant amounts of belly fat to be distributed on one's said abdomen.
Here's a link that explains the phenomen, a great webite strictly devoted to losing belly fat! Woohoo! Just what I need!
Well, I am going to try to give up coffee, but I have to say, that's a hard one for me. In a way, it's not that surprising ... something that good can't be all good for you! And somewhere inside, I had a feeling that coffee wasn't good for my weight. But I conveniently avoided that nagging feeling and kept right on enjoying it. Even if I don't cut coffee out 100%, I know I will have to cut back, to ease my conscience, if nothing else.
Timmie's anyone? I am going to try out that new steeped tea!
