Coffee is a widely known beverage. In addition to helping you burn fat, coffee can help improve mood and performance. This is because of the presence of caffeine, a stimulant.

Another study [2] was done where participants consumed 100 milligrams of caffeine every two hours for 12 hours. Obese participants burned 79 more calories than they normally would without caffeine.
