Weight loss never comes easy for many of us, and this is especially true during the holiday season. But New Year’s Eve is right around the corner and it’s time to start thinking about making weight loss one of your top New Year’s resolutions.
If you’re finally ready to drop those unwanted pounds or the extra weight you gained during the holidays, you have to come up with a plan to make your weight loss stick. One thing people fail to realize is caffeine is an excellent source to help kick start your metabolism and drop those extra inches creeping up around your waistline.
With that said, we’ll take a look at some of today’s best caffeine-filled weight loss drinks. Some you’ve definitely heard of, while there may be a few others you’ve overlooked so far. Let’s take a look at our favorites right now.
1. Black Coffee
Nothing says weight loss like good old black coffee. This old-school coffee beverage is a lot more powerful than you think. It’s got so many health benefits that it’s hard to keep track of them all, but we’re going to do our best to share a few with you right now.
To start things off, black coffee has a way of warding off diabetes. Yes, it’s true, type II diabetes doesn’t stand a chance because Java contains nutrients and other compounds like chlorogenic acid and it has many other health-protective benefits. Since the chlorogenic acid has the ability to reduce the consumption of glucose, you can bet your bottom dollar that your body is going to have an easier time warding off diabetes when you drink plenty of cups of black coffee as opposed to ignoring it altogether.
As far as weight loss is concerned, black coffee is definitely the bee’s knees because the caffeine is going to help speed up your metabolism. And when your metabolism is working quickly, your body is burning fat and calories faster and it’s keeping the weight off. You might also want to check out this beginner’s guide to pour-over coffee.
2. Runa Clean Energy
This amazing energy drink contains 120 mg of caffeine. It has so much caffeine that people have nicknamed it the night watchman because there’s so much juice pumping through your veins after you pound this energy drink that it’s going to be hard to fall asleep at night. If that’s a problem, then you should drink your Runa Clean Energy drink early in the morning to receive an extra metabolism kick to boost your weight loss efforts.
3. Petey’s Bing Beverage
Here’s another high-octane, caffeine-filled energy drink that will really rev your metabolism and get your engine running fast. Petey’s is such an amazing option because not only does it contain caffeine, it also contains taurine, which cardiologists tell us can it help increase your exercise distance, reduce inflammation, and also improve your heart health. So if you’re looking for a powerful caffeine punch that’ll deliver weight loss results, Petey’s Bing Beverage is definitely the right choice.
4. Hint Kick
Believe it or not, Hint is a form of carbonated water, but Hint Kick has added something a little bit special in the form of natural caffeine that’s derived from non-GMO coffee beans.
Even though you’re drinking flavored water, it actually has a serious caffeine kick as well. In fact, it contains 60 mg of caffeine, which is a lot more than you think when compared to Diet Coke which contains 47 mg, Mountain Dew which contains 54 mg, and Dr. Pepper which only contains 41 mg.
So, if you thought your cola was delivering a caffeine kick, think again. Hint Kick is a much better choice because it isn’t loaded with calories and sugar, but it does have enough caffeine to boost your metabolism and get your weight loss efforts moving in the right direction.
As you can see, there are a number of fantastic caffeine-fueled drinks that definitely help aid weight loss. Try any or all of the drinks mentioned above and you’ll notice the scale begin to slowly creep in the right direction.
