Coffee Makes You Smarter, Thinner, and Healthier

Coffee Makes You Thinner

When it comes to exercise, drinking coffee right before your workout helps up your ability to workout longer and harder, therefore getting a better cardio (heart) workout, burning more calories, and potentially helping you to lose more weight. Coffee has also been shown to help post workout too, minimizing after-exercise muscle pain.
