Sorry... but I had to share one more time today!!
Hope it's worth it... Enjoy the read!!
Straight from September 2012 Prevention Magazine:
THE FATTENING BREAKFAST BLUNDER
If you wake up and head straight for the coffeepot, you might be inadvertently derailing your diet. Caffeine can temporarily suppress appetite, causing you to skip breakfast.
That's a problem if your goal is weight loss, since breakfast kick-starts your metabolism. "People who skip the morning meal have a higher BMI, even though they eat fewer calories through-out the day," says Angela Ginn, RD, of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Simple solution: Have your first cup of coffee AFTER breakfast.
And you might want to keep sipping throughout the day. Researchers found that women who drank 4 to 5 cups a day lived 16% longer. Both decaf and regular varieties of joe do the job.~
NOW, that whole thing being said... I would recommend the decaf kind... no need to kick-start all of your natural anxieties!!
