Want Better Workout Results? Eat These Foods And Drinks Before Exercising

Get Energized With Coffee

A caffeine boost can enhance your workout, and coffee is the perfect source of that. According to research in Sports Medicine, caffeine helps people exercise longer and harder. It also prevents people from feeling fatigued. If you add some milk or cream, you’ll run off of protein, too.

Coffee can also help burn fat. In 2019, a study in Scientific Reports reported that caffeine burns brown fat cells after 30 minutes of drinking it. While this may not contribute to weight loss, it speeds your metabolism and can help if you pair it with exercise.
