A study indicates that coffee causes weight loss through boosting metabolism and reducing caloric intake. If you are looking to lose weight, coffee can increase your metabolism and result in faster bowel movement, a factor that contribute to weight loss. But I usually recommend it at least 6 hours before bedtime to avoid sleep interruptions that could delay your weight loss goal.

Apple cider vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is great for weight loss since it helps suppress appetite, raise metabolism, and decrease insulin levels. One study demonstrates that consuming apple cider daily can reduce belly fat, waist circumference, and general weight. It also slows down digestion, leaving you satisfied for longer. This way, you possibly reduce overeating- an enemy to weight loss. But be informed that apple cider is acidic, meaning it can cause enamel erosion. Therefore, consume it in moderation as you rinse with fresh water.
