Drinking coffee before a workout could help prevent you from completely blowing up, according to one study in the journal Appetite. Participants who drank a cup of coffee before working out burned 75 percent more fat compared to those who drank decaf.
The reason? Coffee provides a bigger caloric hit than an energy drink, which can give you a false sense of confidence. Also, the caffeine in coffee can force your body to break down fatty acids for energy, potentially improving muscle recovery.
As an added bonus, coffee has been shown to lower blood pressure, reducing the risk of heart disease, according to the American Heart Association. And caffeine has been shown to help curb appetite, among other benefits.
