Coffee drinking may lead to obesity

Coffee drinking may lead to obesity

I do not recommend you drink coffee as it removes minerals and vitamins, creates acidity, weakens the liver and adrenal glands and raises blood pressure.  Now here is more research linking it to obesity…

“Studies have shown that coffee consumption lowers the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.  With this in mind, we studied the effects of CGAs, which are very rich in coffee...  We found that the equivalent of five cups of coffee a day had a tendency to increase weight gain, particularly in regards to visceral fat.  There was also increasing insulin resistance (which can lead to diabetes) and glucose intolerance in mice having high levels of CGA.  With high levels of CGA you actually have pathways that are disregulated and you start seeing bad effects, the real message is that we need to have coffee in moderation”
University of WA professor Kevin Croft, May 2013.

Researchers from the Western Australian Institute for Medical Research (WAIMR) and the University of Western Australia were studying coffee hoping to find benefits but what they found was the polar opposite.  The study was first in the world to look at higher doses of coffee, 3-5 cups daily:

  • Drinking five cups of coffee a day (normal or decaffeinated), was found to lead to obesity and chronic disease
  • Five coffees a day doubled the deadly fat around organs in the abdomen
  • The compound in coffee called Chlorogenic Acid (CGA) caused the problems
