80 Twenty Nutrition owner Christy Brissette, R.D., agrees. She claims caffeine suppresses appetite, burns fat, and boosts metabolism.

Coffee is linked to weight loss. One 2020 Harvard study indicated that having four cups of coffee reduced body fat by 4%.

The Little Book of Game-Changers author Jessica Cording, R.D., calls caffeine a stimulant. Caffeine increases calorie burn.

“Eating lots of veggies and fiber and exercising regularly are supported.” Cording agrees. She thinks caffeine alone may not prevent obesity and type 2 diabetes risk.
