Question: Great website! I took your fitness quiz, and one of the questions is "Which of these enhances fat burning if consumed before exercise?". The correct answer is "coffee". I was really surprised. Can you explain how/why coffee can enhance fat burning before exercise? Thanks Ivy
Answer: Ivy, Moderate caffeine use, 1 hour prior to exercise, stimulates the release of fatty acids into your blood stream, so that when you exercise, more stored fat is available in a quick and usable form. However, you should weigh these benefits against possible adverse effects: upset stomach, nervousness, irritability, headaches and diarrhea.
