    Coffee stalling weight loss?

    Primal Fuel
    I'm about 90% primal.. good on amount of walking, IF, great explosive-movement workouts, have improved muscle mass, definition in chest, face, etc, but still have a lot in the middle.

    I plan to incorporate more squats once I get my back sorted out,

    But I wonder, could my daily 1-2 coffees per day be holding me back? Yes- I know the response would be "stop drinking it and see," but I was curious if anyone else tried this and saw a result.

    I rarely eat dairy, except for the half and half in my coffee, and I sweeten with honey (although not much).


    Getting a bit frustrated with progress lately. I know- Ignore the scale.... but I weighed in at 119lbs on Monday and I'm a 5'8 male- this is close to my weight when I started 10 months ago. That got me terribly discouraged.

    Could coffee make THAT much of a difference? Not sure what else to try.

    You weigh eight and a half stone? You should be putting on weight not losing it.

    Yes it did for me. I stopped dairy/coffee together, so could have been either.
    But 3 weeks without it, and ive lost now 8 cm on my waist and just over 2 kg. Nothing moved for ages before this.

    coffee:

    -improves insulin sensitivity
    -revs metabolism
    -heightens energy, focus, and drive

    there's more. but take the creamer and sweetener out. use coconut milk instead.
    this great blue world of ours seems a house of leaves, moments before the wind

    Don't listen to the anecdotal "face palms" and "no ways". Most are addicted to the stuff. Fact of the matter is coffee is a seed that is abrasive to the CNS. It very well can contribute to cortisol production leading to reduced fat loss. Obviously this may be an issue for a minority of people, but it is definitely worth considering. Some can thrive on excessive neurostimulant and some can't, BUT nobody NEEDS it....so giving it up is a viable option for all.

    all short term effects without consideration to long term health, but if you have some studies to show this as factual please provide some links. I really would like some more info to support my own habbit (I'm down to two cups a day)
