Caffeinated Coffee May Make You Fat

A study released today shows Caffeinated Coffee interferes with how you use insulin. The cause of Type 2 Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome, Hypoglycemia & Obesity all have insulin insensitivity as a major root cause. The major cause of getting fat is insulin insensitivity.

“Conclusion: The ingestion of CC with either a high or low GI meal significantly impairs acute blood glucose management and insulin sensitivity compared with ingestion of DC. Future investigations are warranted to determine whether CC is a risk factor for insulin resistance.”

In other words; taking in as little as 5 mg of caffeine from coffee interferes with how your body uses and stores carbohydrates and fats. The more insulin you need to deal with carbohydrates the more your body turns those carbohydrates into fat. Taking as little as 5 mg of caffeine reduced insulin sensitivity by 40% with a sugary meal & 29% with a more complex carbohydrate meal.

    One problem with that study was that the coffee was consumed one hour before the cereal. What if the coffee is consumed with the meal?
