Dr Oz: Does Coffee Help You Lose Weight?
One of the things we are always told to drink more of, especially when dieting, is water. I know I personally always have a glass full of water next to me at home or a water bottle with me on the road, but what about coffee? Have you ever been told that drinking coffee will help you to lose weight? Could both of them be beneficial to weight loss or is this just a myth? Science Bob explains that our body is about 60% water, with our brain being at about 70%. He says we need that water to give us energy, to run our metabolism, and fill our cells. He explains that if your body has all of the water it needs already, with the cells being hydrated; drinking more water doesn’t actually improve your weight loss. You will simply pee out the water without any added benefit to your body. Simply put, it is a myth that drinking more water will actually help you to lose more weight, but what about coffee? Coffee is a stimulant and when it goes into our body it gives us energy. If you add cream and sugar, you lose the benefit of the energy because of all the added calories, which leads you to drink more and more cups because you need to keep replenishing your energy. While coffee offers many health benefits, Dr. Oz says this myth is busted because drinking coffee to help you lose weight just doesn’t work.
