According to Dr. Bob Arnot of The Coffee Lover's Diet, some coffees are better for revving up your metabolism than others. The best are low-roasted versions that contain antioxidants which contain phenols. The phenols improve blood sugar, burn fat, protect your heart, lower Alzheimer's risk by 65%, and reduce cancer risk.
The best coffees to buy are actually right in your local supermarket and include Veranda Blend Blonde by Starbucks, Eight O'Clock Coffee Colombian Medium, and Dunkin Donuts Original Blend.
It's ironic that I was born in August, the hottest month of the year, but I can't stand all that heat. And it's not over yet. With heat indexes that reach between 105 degrees to 129 degrees, our bodies can suffer from heatstroke, heat cramps and heat exhaustion before we know it, even in areas that are considered shady. The body cools itself by sweating, so if you're in this type of heat and NOT sweating, that's a danger sign. My solution - stay in the dang house and eat some fruit, which is the best thing about the summer.
