    Default Why A Cup Of Coffee Prevents Diabetes And Obesity

    Bryan Hubbard
    July 12 2019

    Drinking a cup of coffee could kick-start the body's fat-fighting abilities and help prevent obesity and diabetes.
    The drink seems to stimulate a type of fat in the body known as 'brown fat' or brown adipose tissue. The fat helps generate body heat by burning sugar and fat, often when the temperature drops, whereas white fat is the consequence of storing excess calories.
    But other than a cold day, nobody has worked out how to stimulate brown fat—although, until recently, scientists believed only babies and hibernating animals possessed it. Brown fat in adults is mainly found around the neck.

    What? I don't need to lose the fat around my neck. I need to lose the white belly fat around my tummy. I'm at a good weight and a healthy BMI, but that belly fat? Clings like leeches from pond water!

    Nice to learn coffee will kick start the brown fat burning process. I read keeping the temperature of your home on the cool side, and sleeping under one layer of bedding with your bedroom window cracked in the winter also activates brown fat. Oh, and the next time someone complains about your ice cold air conditioning, you can tell them you're activating your brown fat to help you lose weight. Lol.

    I can't get to sleep when I'm cold. A warm bed and a cool room seems to work, but one layer of bedding? Sounds chilly!

    I am with Julieanne on this one. When I was growing up, my father turned the thermostat down to 55 every night, turning it back up to 68 in the morning (he was the first to get up). So I've been acclimated to sleeping in cool temps — but under heavy quilts! Yes, I often crack the window open in winter as long as I'm toasty warm in bed!
