Drinking coffee on an empty stomach will have a negative impact on the hormonal system and weight gain
caffeine stimulates the production of cortisol, a stress hormone secreted by the adrenal glands. This generates a feeling of renewed energy, which is very noticeable when you feel tired or after a meal that is a little too rich. But this stress hormone, cortisol, also has an influence on fat storage and promotes abdominal weight gain.
Cortisol experiences a peak of secretion around 8:00 a.m. So if coffee is consumed on an empty stomach in the morning, the impact of this stress hormone is even stronger and risks causing fat storage in the long term. It is therefore advisable to drink your first coffee after breakfast.
