Most people who drink coffee swear by this and wouldn’t think of beginning their day without it. Some coffee drinkers, drink it by the pot and noticed significant weight loss over time, but is this safe to do daily? The recommended daily allowance for coffee is about 4 to 5 cups day for most people. This is still in the range that will help you lose a few extra pounds, but you should be drinking your coffee black, or at least with a low carb sweetener.
Research on drinking brewed or instant coffee for weight loss, has been going back and forth on whether or not a few cups of coffee a day is a healthy routine or not. The latest research shows that drinking your daily coffee it is not only safe to consume, but drinking several cups of coffee per day can actually help you lose weight. This is great and exciting news for coffee lovers such as myself, but I am also aware not to go overboard and drink more than the recommended daily limit, this is where health issues may arise.
